Automated Paint System

The automated paint system in an automotive plant is used to spray the exact amount of paint to the right areas of the vehicle bodies for just the right length of time. An electrostatic charged undercoat of primer is applied to the inside and outside of the shell before the final top coat of coloured paint is applied. Such machinery is extensively guarded and interlocked to ensure that operators and/or maintenance personnel can only enter the guarded area once all machinery is isolated and has come to rest. Guard doors are interlocked with machine drives such that control power to all moving parts is isolated prior to opening the actual guard doors.
