METALLISATION, represented by MSSA Interweld , has announced two new Arcspray 140 models, to complement the company's existing range.
Two new systems are available -- the 140GP, aimed primarily at the anticorrosive market, and the 140E, aimed at the engineering sector.
Both systems employ the unique and patented flexible drive system which means that the motor drive is remote from the pistol.
In addition, both systems are powered by electric drive units which are precisely controlled, giving the benefits of repeatability, and consistent wire speed control.
Both systems offer a constant geometry (CG) head that ensures reliable alignment of the wire for long periods, giving consistent spray quality and ease of maintenance.
The Arc 140E can be used for the application of engineering coatings (with a 250A power source), for reclamation of a variety of parts including bearing and seal surfaces, print and textile rollers, anti-spark coatings, wear coatings, etc.
The Arc 140GP can be employed to apply anti-corrosion coatings (with a 250A or 450A power source) to structural steelwork, waterways lock gates, oil production platforms, tanks, vessels and decorative steelwork.
The patented "Synchro drive" push/pull system on the 140GP provides constant, reliable and trouble-free operation utilising two gearboxes linked mechanically by a flexible drive.
The drive system guarantees the push and pull elements cannot be out of synchronisation, which ensures consistent wire feed over a long range up to 20 metres.
The benefits of the Arc 140 system include a choice of coating textures, low running costs, high/low throughput, various wire dispensing solutions, extension spray nozzles, etc.
