Amazone opens state-of-the-art paint shop
Amazone has invested around €20 million in a new paint facility at its drill factory at Hude-Altmoorhausen, in Germany. The largest single investment in the company’s history, the cathodic dip painting (KTL) technique results in corrosion protection similar to that used in the automotive industry.
Built inside a covered area of around 8,000m², the digitally controlled plant has the capacity to paint up to 750,000m² of surface area per year. Divided into three main areas, this includes hanging up and taking off stations, a pre-treatment and primer coating hall, three curing ovens and a dip paint and powder coating area. All three areas are connected via a 2.3km long overhead track system, and all parts to be painted are automatically transported from station to station.
“The new paint facility is an important milestone for the Hude-Altmoorhausen factory,” commented Amazone director Christian Dreyer. “We now have one of the most up to date painting facilities in the agricultural industry.”
