Award-winning body shop chain, AW Repair Group, chosen Junair once again to replace existing paintbooth operations. Having installed a Junair 3 Series at their last two new ventures, Junair Spraybooths have seen an increase in throughput and decrease in costs as they embarked on a complete strategic replacement programme.
Quality Spraybooths for Body Shops
The Sleaford, Lincolnshire prestige manufacturer site was recently installed with a double length Junair downdraught drive through booth completing the three-phased upgrade scheme.
The double length allows two vehicles in two different colours to be sprayed in the same booth without the risk of cross contamination, and by using Junair QADs, an auxiliary air drying system, the cycle time is shortened and less energy is used. Although a double length drive through spraybooth is more costly than a normal standalone spraybooth, it costs significantly less than 2 new spraybooths and improves efficiency as well.
A previous AW Repair Group replacement in South Yorkshire has also seen the drive through 3 Series increase productivity by 4 jobs per day. As well as this AW sites have reported that spray booth operating costs have been reduced by at least a third, so it’s easy to see why managing director Andrew Walsh was keen to install a 3 Series in their Sleaford head office.
Double Length Spraybooths
The drive through nature of the spraybooth means that work flow through the bodyshop can be optimised; preparation work can be confined to one side of the body shop whilst polishing and final touches can be completed at the other end making for a more efficient process.
The new spray booth is operated using the new eSystem controller, an easy to use Siemens PLC control system offering the user a straight forward method of operating the spraybooth. It uses the latest Siemens technology ensuring that AW have the most reliable control system possible.
Jason Douglas, Sales Director, Junair Spraybooths commented
“Junair have fitted out several of the AW Repair Group already, it’s great to see the benefits that AW Repair Group are seeing on a daily basis. We already have orders in production for the next AW sites, which are being installed soon.”
