The gentle spray jet with low kinetic energy is the secret behind the GA 5000's very high transfer efficiency. "Anyone switching from conventional coating processes to an electrostatic system with the GA 5000 can save between 30 and 50 per cent in materials. Depending on usage, this allows the associated investments to be amortised very quickly, in some cases in less than a year," stated Peter Neu.
The GA 5000's special air system also ensures particularly fine atomisation in minimally small droplets. The homogeneous spray jet does not rebound from the workpiece, but coats curves and inaccessible places with a high-quality finish. This speeds up the coating process, reducing coating times by up to 20 per cent and paving the way for significant increases in productivity. The GA 5000's nozzles and air caps can also be replaced under pressure even during low pressure applications, which means that production processes are interrupted for just a few seconds. And maintenance is quickly taken care of, thanks to the GA 5000's simple disassembly and assembly.
"In combination with the EPG 5000 control device, the GA 5000 EA or GA 5000 EAC offer the most extensive range of control features on the market," emphasised Peter Neu. An external interface is used for either manual or automatic control, allowing all electrical parameters in the coating process to be set and optimised. The high voltage can be adjusted variably in real time to suit the shape of the workpiece. The VM 5020 WA automatic control unit for the AquaCoat system can be used together with the GA 5000 EAW or EACW guns for water-based paints. Even before the market launch of the GA 5000 in November 2016, feedback from dealers and customers was positive. "The high transfer efficiency combined with the new compact design and attractive price have persuaded many customers even today. We are already experiencing high demand," said Peter Neu.
