IV Techmould makes a big investment in their painting capability

IV Techmould has installed a new painting line to support current and future business. The new line is a 2 spray booth automatic flatbed line capable of running both water and thinner borne paints.

We studied different options before we decided to go for the option to replace our old line with a brand new automatic flatbed line, says Managing Director Fredrik Carlsson.

It was a necessity for us to increase our capacity in painting given the business we already have been awarded. Our old line was a high-end robotic painting line that was installed in 2006. It was a very good painting line and had served us well over the years but for the current business it didn’t have the needed capacity.

With the new line IV Techmould have increased the output capacity with between 5-10 times compared to the old line depending on products.   
 As part of the new painting line project we have conducted a training course in painting for our team. For the training we engaged Oktandesign (www.oktandesign.com), a coating specialist company. They held 3 separate courses involving both theoretical and practical workshops.
We continue to work together to continuously improve. The new painting line is great but it needs skilled people to run it, so it’s also very important that we hire, train and educate skillful personnel. Oktandesign has helped us with this and that’s been great. That they can do this training bilingual in both English and Mandarin is very helpful for us, says Fredrik Carlsson

The new painting line is up and running in mass production since mid-July and approved by customers and authorities.
