DÜRR AND HSM DEBUT NEW LOW-PRESSURE SPRAY GUN
The new low-pressure spray gun for colour changes in just a few seconds without the need for solvents.
A new low-pressure spray gun makes colour changes much faster and easier. Dürr and HSM Lackiersysteme partnered to develop a new technology: a rapid-change system for the colour channel, the spray gun is ready to use again within seconds after changing colours without solvents. This feature is ideal for the car repair sector, where small-batch painting is standard.
Like all Dürr low-pressure spray guns, the latest model, the EcoGun ACE, has a robust design well suited for industrial use. It provides a demonstrably exceptional spray pattern with excellent application efficiency and simplifies colour changing with quick exchange injector nozzles. A particularly robust and spill-proof cup system from HSM Lackiersysteme enhances the new product. The cup system incorporates both a safety lock and a soiling guard, to ensure good legibility of the measuring scales at all times. The highlight of the new spray gun is an innovative, rapid-change system for the colour channel, resulting in significant time and cost savings. The product is well-suited for applications in various areas such as woodworking, vehicle paintwork repairs, and yacht and boat building applications.
Rapid-change colour channel system results in significant time and solvent savings
Previous feed cup spray guns are equipped with a cup that holds paint. When it’s time to change colour, the cup must either be flushed and refilled or replaced with a new cup containing the appropriate colour. In addition, all the channels that carry colour between the cup and nozzle require flushing to prevent paint contamination or commingling. This process is very time-intensive and requires solvent use. This new spray gun features an innovative system that enables much faster colour changes. This system replaces the entire colour channel, including the nozzle, quickly and easily, so the spray gun is ready for use again within a few seconds for time savings of 90% compared with conventional low-pressure guns. It even makes solvent use obsolete.
Optimal for industry sector and adjacent areas
“In partnership with HSM, we are pleased to offer a very user-friendly product that sets new standards for low-pressure guns,” reiterates Ulrich Tautz, Senior Sales Manager of Industrial Products at Dürr. “Our spray guns will make painting easier, particularly for applications such as woodworking or the car repair sector where varnishing jobs with small amounts of varnish and lots of colour changes are the norm.” The spray gun is distributed directly by Dürr and its partners.
