The latest generation Metallisation ARC701/S700 with closed loop current control is a unique blend of ability and innovation. It brings together the proven performance of the ARC700 pistol plus the latest technological advances. The new S700 energiser still gives high spray rates for reduced spraying times over large areas and still has closed loop current control for ease of operation and protection from over-current. It also features sealed electronics and PLC control for excellent reliability in the harshest of spray environments and high specification digital meters. The drive unit is still robust, ensuring supreme reliability in the most arduous of site conditions. The lightweight, hand-held 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. Various packaging options, including an extended site trolley, allow the energiser to be sited up to 25m from the pistol spraying area. Alternatively, the drive unit can be mounted neatly on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying.

The design also allows for multiple customer-specific packaging options for the wire drive and dispense. In one option, for example, the unit is neatly mounted on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying. Other options include floor or trolley mounting of the wire drive unit.

  • Suitable for anti-corrosion wires 2.3mm to 3.17mm (1/8”).
  • Easy to maintain, less than 3 minutes to change contact tubes and nozzles.
  • Push system for a maximum length from dispenser to pistol of 8m (5m from pusher to pistol).
  • Power and air supplies packages in 5m and 10m lengths as standard.
  • Low running costs as compared with gas systems.
  • Steel reinforced conduits for extended service life.
  • Quick release power, air and control couplings allow quick assembly / disassembly of package.

ARC701/S700 Arc Spray - Typical Applications 

  • Multi-coat system for both Engineering and Anti-Corrosive Coatings including:
  • Reclamation of worn components
  • Restoration of diameter
  • Anti-corrosion protection to replace or repair galvanising
  • Anti-corrosion protection using Zinc, or Aluminium, or 85/15 Zinc Aluminium, or AlMg5. 

ARC701/S700 Arc Spray - Industry Applications

  • Structural steelwork
  • Offshore/oil & gas
  • Shipbuilding/Marine bridges (concrete and steel)
  • Vessels and enclosures
  • Wind turbine towers
  • Steel reinforcing bars
  • Large anti-corrosion 

ARC701/S700 Arc Spray - Pistol

The lightweight, hand-held 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.  For use spraying anti-corrosion coatings on large surface areas in the spray shop and onsite environment.  

  • Simple to operate
  • CG (constant geometry) head ensuring smooth feed, repeatable wire alignment and no adjustment of contact tubes required
  • Lightweight pistol that reduces the operator fatigue
  • Closed arc for improved spray conditions and coating quality
  • ‘Spreader’ attachment on pistol gives the option to ‘widen’ the spray pattern to maximise coverage and help to provide an even coating
  • Different sized contact tubes, nozzle and air cap for different wire sizes
