At the beginning of 2014 Makor has successfully installed a high technology finishing plant for architectural mouldings at the company BERGENE HOLM in Norway.
During the acquisition of information to study the best production solution, the customer main request was of a universal and high performance line in terms of compatibility with various types of profiles (indoor, outdoor, narrow, wide, etc.), very high production speed and very low down time for set-up and maintenance.
This base was the required and essential recipe to be able to carry on an unusual choice: to continue producing in a country with high manufacturing costs and remain competitive despite the globalization times.
Mission accomplished! The line regularly produces up to 30 profiles per minute 4.2 m. long, a goal never achieved before. In addition to that, we worked a lot on the configuration of each machine, all carefully selected and enriched in heavy duty version of multiple numerical control automatisms.
The jewel in the crown is definitely the oven, which has 2 stages (both implemented with drying elements, exclusive Makor main characteristic) and features full option version (NIR modules, 10 air-jet hoods with electric heater alternated with IRM modules, refrigeration, humidity automatic control, etc.).
In various areas of the line the status of production can be supervised, and interacts both in terms of diagnostics, operation and periodic report.
The remote control is also accessible via remote PC with access key.
The coating cycle of the line consists of two coats of paint for indoor profiles (UV100% + WB) and one coat (WB) for profiles for outdoor use. The spraying and sanding machines provided are the most evolved in the market today in terms of sturdiness, ease of use, continuity of production and low maintenance.
The icing on the cake, to crown BERGENE HOLM expectation to be at the forefront, was the installation of a UV led lamps tunnel. The product is not yet conventional (but it will be), which implies a multiplicity of advantages for the user (low over-heat of the coated substrate, crucial especially on wood; low power consumption; duration of the modules up to 20,000 working hours at steady performance, etc.).
Makor is proud to have been able to meet the expectations of the company BERGENE HOLM, confirming its technological leadership more in more in the worldwide profile coating.
