mycon GmbH recently implemented and commissioned the first coating device that it fully developed during the past several years, for a large industrial company in Ostwestfalen-Lippe. The customer’s inquiry led to the system’s development, which is suitable for coating and painting longer parts, e.g., wires, belts, tubes, rods, and profiles. The industrial client approached mycon because it had developed a new corrosion inhibitor that was not sprayable. They required a conveyor system that would provide throughput speeds of up to 80 m (260 ft) per minute, with operating costs below that of conventional devices. mycon expanded a prototype device with several lines that could coat simultaneously. The company developed and built the coating heads, the technical connections in the manufacturing plant, supply tanks for the medium, the temperature control of the medium, as well as the entire installation and implementation on site. mycon is working on ways to advance processes for even higher throughput speeds, and on the ability to process all corrosion protection coatings, paints, and varnishes without exception. The company plans to make the new plant available for the market soon.
