ARC170-CL Arc Spray System (No longer available - See menu for current choices.)

The Metallisation ARC170AC-CL has been developed with air cooled cables for a lighter hand-held pistol weight when spraying at 700A. The use of air cooled cables, as well as some other pistol modifications have reduced the hand held weight by about 2kg – a significant benefit to the spray operators. Feedback from users of the existing 700A push systems is that the pistol is less restricted in movement and lighter than the systems that they are used to. This, combined with the ability to have 10m push/pull and even longer extended supplies systems is making the ARC170AC a great solution for large scale anti-corrosion applications. As an additional development, the drive motor is now a powerful brushless AC motor with inverter control.

The ARC170AC-CL offers high throughput with large diameter wires (1/8” and 3/16”), and is the recommended system for large scale, anti-corrosion applications. The ARC170AC-CL's proven and patented Synchrodrive push/pull system has no motor in the pistol, resulting in a lighter, more maneuverable hand-held spray gun which has a 10m wire dispense distance. The system's robust design also includes the established Constant Geometry (CG) head, which ensures a smooth and consistent spray quality.

The new S700CL, 700 amp energiser still offers high spray rates for reduced spraying times over large areas but is now combined with closed loop current control. This enables the operator to set the spray current independent of wire type before starting the job, enabling easier setup and protection of the system from over-current. The control function is now controlled by a simple PLC which ensures improved reliability as less component parts are required. It also makes fault finding simple using a standard multimeter with the I/O for the PLC.

The S700CL energiser also features sealed electronics for excellent reliability in the harshest of spray environments. The design also allows for multiple customer-specific packaging options for the wire drive and dispense. In one option, for example, the unit is neatly mounted on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying. Other options include floor or trolley mounting of the wire drive unit.
