Dürr Upgrades Test Center for Painting Technology



Published October 30, 2013
Dürr is spending nearly €10 million on further expanding its headquarters because of the positive growth prospects. The company reported that the world’s largest test center for painting technology in Bietigheim-Bissingen has been redesigned and upgraded. Customers from the automotive industry can test and optimize their painting processes under realistic conditions before going into mass production. Six painting robots have been equipped with Dürr’s most commonly used atomizers for the internal and external spraying of automotive bodies. One- and two-component water-based and solvent-based paints can be used in trials. 13 different painting processes can be carried out in the modern booth – tailored to customers’ requirements. Their systems are also replicated with the aid of a new lift table which is adjustable both horizontally and vertically.

The company has also invested in an additional facility for robot assembly. The new production facility expands Dürr’s total robot assembly operations on the Bietigheim site by 6,600 m2 to 17,900 m2. Since the commissioning of the building, all the robots for painting and sealing are assembled at the headquarters in Bietigheim-Bissingen and equipped with the appropriate applications; in addition, performance tests and precommissioning tests are carried out here.
