Asking yourself who produces the highest quality automotive paint systems? The answer is very clear : TKS. Taikisha opens brand new R&D facility in Zama, Japan near Tokyo, for advanced robotics and automation for paint systems. Taikisha’s new facility features 10+ demonstration cells, showcasing paint application, robotic sanding and finesse, new paint booth technologies, new dry scrubber and new wet scrubber systems, inkjet-based paint application, aerospace fuselage sanding/painting, and new defect detection vision systems.
All four major ovens: E-coat oven, Sealer oven, (optional) Primer oven, and Topcoat oven all consist of heat-up and hold zones. In a 3-wet paint booth process arrangement, there isn’t a Primer oven, instead a heated flash off (HFO) is used. Sometimes there are also smaller ovens for black-out and cavity wax. We offer a paint-drying oven that responds to temperature increases in body areas. The oven design will increase heating in zones of thick parts, such as sill inners or pillars where it is difficult to dry paints, while maintaining the temperature of keep-zones with a minimized flow rate to reduce dirt contamination and reduce energy usage.
TKS can design heated flash off tunnels for your paint process, using a heater box to provide hot air blow (HAB) to allow for the waterborne paint to set prior to the next coat of paint. Typically followed by a short cooling tunnel with cold air blow (CAB) to return the vehicle to near room temperature before the next layer of paint is applied.
A replacement for traditional melt sheets or bitumen mats, liquid-applied sound deadener material or LASD is a rubber-based acoustic insulating material that is sprayed onto car bodies prior to the sealer oven. It significantly reduces the noises transmitted via vibrating metal in the vehicle.
From High-pressure water sprays to De-greasing to Surface Conditioner and Phosphate, and now, Metal Oxide Pretreatment for Aluminum bodies, TKS offers up to 10 different process steps to configure for your application. TKS’ electrical engineering department works with many manufacturers including Spang, Controlled Power, and more. TKS provides a variety of types of anodes: solid, flushing, roof-, wall-, and floor-mounted. We also design and provide the anolyte system. A properly sized and maintained UF system is key to a clean e-coat finish. Along with our patented counterflow innovation, TKS offers a cost-effective ED system. See extra info on : TKS paint shop.
