Case Study Powder Coating: Quality, Flexibility, Efficiency

2019-07-03

BSH Electrodomésticos España replaces a 30-year-old powder coating line and switches to dense phase technology with positive impacts on quality, flexibility and profitability

The new powder coating line for BSH increases production flexibility while reducing costs.

Refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washing machine: For a long time, these (major) household appliances were hidden behind screens or banished to the basement. In today’s open living spaces and kitchens, the design monotony of “white goods” is now a thing of the past. A modern refrigerator often in a noble anthracite or a dazzling red matches the carefully crafted ambiance and color scheme of a new kitchen.

BSH Electrodomésticos España in Spain powder coats appliances under brands of Bosch, Siemens, Neff and Balay. The company recognized early the trend toward color diversity. To be able to offer its customers a greater selection of colors and higher finish quality, they decided to install a state-of-the-art powder coating system with Nordson dense phase technology.

The company set their goals for their new system high, with the top 6 priorities being:

  • A dramatic increase in coating capacity, in order to cover production peaks and handle increasing demand for doors and top panels
  • Coating quality optimization and elimination of rework
  • Maximum operating flexibility – any product, any color, on-demand.
  • Maximum automation and process control for quality and powder savings
  • Significant reduction in energy consumption
  • Compliance with the strictest ecological standards
