Today’s tight schedules and even tighter profit margins require rethinking of the paint department production process in order to be able to achieve the best turn around times that are crucial to a shops success.
No one can expect to achieve the best results in the paint shop utilizing the same old methods of doing things.
“If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done” “You’ll Always Get What You’ve Always Got”.
So True this statement is that if a quality production facility wishes to achieve the utmost refinish quality with the lightning speed necessary to maximize refinish throughput at the lowest cost the answer is here.

The overhead system has a Push Button Motorized Robotic Arm to help in the easy positioning of the lamp array.
Systems can be set up with the 4000 watt lamp array or the 8000 lamp array with up to 16,000 watts or more to cover extremely large areas of paint surface.
Custom Configurations are easy for manufacturing to develop for any particular application or need.
Here is a 36,000 watt custom configuration designed especially for this customer. The Spectratherm Overhead Track System was specifically designed to maximize vehicle throughput. Utilizing the Short Wave Infra-Red curing process, it combines; lamps, unique reflectors, lamp array, and a Thermal Integrated Sensor System (TISS) to significantly reduce standard curing and drying times.
The Short Wave Infra-Red curing heads are suspended from an overhead track system, freeing up valuable floor space. An “easy glide” bridge assembly makes positioning the curing heads on any vehicle panel effortless. The articulating arm can position the array as low as 9 inches off the shop floor or raise it above the tallest SUV.
There is no maneuvering of portable floor systems between tightly spaced work bays, eliminating any fear of accidental vehicle damage. The innovative track design and its cable carrier allow the track system to span multiple bays. There are no electric cables dragging along or cluttering up the floor.
Various options are available, floor mount, ceiling mount or a combinaison of both.
