Spray equipment from Graco was supplied to a client in the commercial automotive business who sought a reliable unit that would deliver a quality finish cost-effectively.
This customer produces approximately 45 commercial vehicles per month for the domestic market. A key requirement was for the sprayer to produce a good quality finish while using the least amount of material. Their existing spray package had lasted for about eight months with the pump losing pressure and unable to extract fluid from the paint container.
The Merkur ES spray package from Graco offers superior atomisation performance to produce high quality finished products using parts with proven reliability. The Merkur ES is a more robust sprayer and is backed by Graco’s after-sales support.
Following a few trial sessions at the end-user site, the Merkur ES proved its ability to handle large surface spray jobs for truck applications. The Merkur ES demonstrated material savings of up to 25% compared to the previous unit.
The end user is planning to use the Merkur ES spray packages for future plant expansion projects.
