Arc Spray 528 System

The Metallisation ARC528E-ICC offers the ultimate in reliability and precision for demanding production applications, including anti-corrosion and engineering coatings. Wire drive is supplied at the heavy-duty pistol by a highly accurate, powerful DC servo motor, through a robust gearbox and drive roller system. The high-performance pistol incorporates proven Metallisation technology, including a unique, constant geometry (CG) head. This ensures smooth and consistent spray quality and minimal downtime when changing consumable spares. Supreme flexibility is also a keynote of the ARC528E. The high throughput version of the ARC528E pistol is connected to a  PLC controlled 700A switched voltage energiser. The PLC offers reliability and easier maintainability and links to control electronics with closed loop current control, built in to the sealed section of the energiser. The system is easily integrated to production lines if required.
