LestaUSA Introduces Suction/Blow-off Robot
to Efficiently Eliminate Water Pockets during Paint Preparation
LestaUSA offers a needed solution to eliminate moisture on parts by developing suction/blow-off robots using their new-to-North America finishing robotic technology.
“The presence of moisture on a part after exiting the dry-off oven is a major contributor to paint defects,” said Brad Ruppert, Paint Applications Specialist for LestaUSA. “Our Suction/Blow-off robots are simple to program to eliminate water pockets prior to entering the dry off oven during paint preparation.”
Most manufacturers that have a multi-stage wash for their coating operations struggle with getting rid of pockets of standing water even with the aid of a dry-off oven. Removing these pockets of water are costly with traditional methods; someone manually blowing off every part destined for the oven, re-engineering parts so that they contain more drain holes, or turning up the oven temperature to evaporate the standing water.
“Using LestaUSA Suction/Blow-off robots instead of traditional options will improve any operation’s efficiencies and bottom line,” said Derek DeGeest, President of LestaUSA. “We are currently taking pre-orders before the January 31, 2020 release date. There is a lot of excitement about this new robotic application. We’ve decided to offer pre-orders to guarantee an early install as we ramp up production.”
What’s unique is no complicated programming. Lesta’s proven technology is so simple that, upon completion of the installation, a manufacturer of any size can literally be making their own programs and using these robots.
Lesta robots go into a weightless learning mode while in the hands of a finishing line attendant, who guides the robot through the appropriate sequence to ensure the moisture is dealt with as the software creates its own robotic code of every movement. Programs are made without a gap in production and immediately ready for the next part, freeing up your talent to help your company accomplish more.
LestaUS Suction/Blow-off robot debuts at Booth #11054 at FABTECH® 2019 in Chicago. For those not attending FABTECH®, the technology can be seen firsthand at LestaUSA’s showroom inside DeGeest Steel Works near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Appointments to experience and use a Lesta robot can be made by phone (1-888-546-2800) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Now taking preorders. Full availability of LestaUSA Suction/Blow-off robots start January 31, 2020.
