Many customers are still “hot potting” their 2K materials. This is a very expensive way to handle two component paints and adhesives, and can lead to inaccurate mixes and rejects. There are several manufacturers who have developed systems to mix the material, track application usages, and save many times the cost of the equipment and it’s integration. Each manufacturer has their own approach to 2K mixing. Graco is the leader in “dosing” systems which are strong with low flow rates. They have a wide offering from one gun, hand spray, applications to multiple, automatic and robotic systems. ITW Ransburg features two very different technologies with “real time” mixing with their DynaFlow flowmeter system and their “gear pump” system, RCS 2.
RCS 2 is a very dependable, accurate system.Ransburg also offers everything from low cost, one gun systems, to high end multiple automatic and robotic systems. 2K mixing systems give you consistent, accurate, mix ratios, and eliminate expensive waste at the end of the shift. You need to consider upgrading your system with this money saving solution. Thierica Equipment Co. has a cost justification form that can help you to decide if 2K equipment is cost effective for you.
