Maximum system capacity utilization, quality optimization and automation are the three pillars of the manufacturing process with which NEA Process Technology (NEAPT) has dealt intensely with its partners.
Maximum system capacity utilization:
The protective screener is an essential component of every grinding system in the area of powder coating application. With in excess of 600 reference plants, NEAPT has a great wealth of experience in integration screening machines common on the market. In the next step, NEAPT combined its cooperation partner GKM’s specialist knowledge in the area of screening technology with its own expertise in powder coating application and developed an exclusive powder coating screener. A screen with improved material guidance allowing for higher throughput with smaller machine diameters. The greatest possible attention was also given to the industry’s core requirement – fast and easy cleaning.
A large number of our ICM grinding systems are restricted in operation by the filling process of finished material because manual packaging procedures reach their limits when a filling volume of 700 kg/h is exceeded. NEAPT has developed a powder coating filling station together with a further specialist, the company Niverplast BV, which solves this problem and also takes both the filling quantity and filling precision into account. With a filling capacity of 2,000kg/h and filling precision of ± 20g in 20 or 25 kg boxes, new benchmarks have been set for this segment. An extraction system hinders undesired dust development in the working area, and that with a maximum product yield. Moreover, optional big bag filling provides top flexibility.
The area of work safety also enjoys great attention in the manufacturing process. The cyclone discharge, screening machine and filling station are connected to joint grounding surveillance device in order to protect the employees from static discharge.
The filling station NEA by Niverplast is not only an important component when maximizing system capacity utilization, but also in the area of quality assurance and cost reduction. Precise recording of the discharge mass flow by the gram enables the precise addition of additives by the gram using the gravimetric additive dosing feeder, the NEAddiX. On the one hand, this increases the powder quality and on the other hand considerably reduces the costs for additives.
NEAPT has not only incorporated its experience and expertise in powder coating manufacturing for the NEA by Niverplast filling station, but also for the CombiPlast and VarioClip units. Whilst up to eight customer boxes per minute can be errected and equipped with a bag in the CombiPlast fully automatically, the VarioClip can close up to eight bags and boxes. With this, both aggregates are designed to process up to twelve tons’ finished materials. This is equivalent to a full load installed production capacity from twelve ICM60 grinding systems. The entire NEA by Niverplast range can be modularly retrofitted and extended. On a project-specific basis, the matching conveyor concept as well as the optional integration of a palletizer and labeling machine is developed and implemented individually on a project-specific basis with the respective plant operator.
The solution described can also be integrated in the XPlore solution developed by NEA X. This enables the recording, analysis and documentation of the entire production process from weighing-in the raw materials up to palletizing the finished materials.
