Plate & Shape Lines
Nutro designs high speed, automated spray booths and drying ovens to paint large, & heavy plates and shapes for barge manufacturers and other steel plate manufactures. One bit of technology that eases the task of painting so many varied parts without tremendous paint waste is a scanning laser system which uses multiple lasers to scan incoming parts and measure their dimensions on-the-fly. This part profile information is analyzed and converted to data that controls reciprocating guns so that each gun triggers precisely when needed to paint each part that goes by.
This technology not only saves money on over-sprayed paint material, but allows the system to operate more efficiently. Less overspray increases the efficiency of the spray booth by extending filter lifetime, reducing spray gun tip wear, and reduces the downtime for cleaning and maintenance as nuisance paint builds up.
