Kremlin Rexson Cyclomix™ Micro & EOS Pump Reduces Labor Costs & Increases Productivity for Major Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer

EXEL North America worked with Olympic Kitchen, one of the largest kitchen cabinet manufacturers in the Greater Toronto area in Ontario, Canada, to reduce their labor and increase  production.  They have been a Kremlin Rexson customer for over 16 years. 

Olympic Kitchens discovered that their 2k materials were not being manually mixed properly. Therefore, they were looking to reduce labor time and simplify the process.  Their application consisted of an automatic  flat-line with a three-circuit Venjakob machine.

Olympic Kitchens offers custom finished kitchens with catalyzed materials.   They are currently using a 2K primer, colors, lacquer, and 1K sealer.  As part of their production process, they needed to make sure that the catalyst was being mixed properly.  Their existing equipment consisted of the Kremlin Rexson 16-120 pumps, Manual Airmix® & Airspray technology, and ATX guns for the flatline machine.

EXEL North America met with Olympic Kitchens and explained the advantages and benefits of upgrading their current Kremlin Rexson equipment to newly, innovative equipment that would reduce their need for manual labor and increase productivity in their facility.

To optimize Olympic Kitchens performance, EXEL North America was able to show how the CyclomixMicro would enable them to have a more precise control in mixing fresh 2k material  when they needed it.  This equipment also delivered timed flushing sequences and volume control.  EXEL North America installed the following Kremlin Rexson equipment into their facility:

  • Cyclomix™ Micro PH 3 + 1
  • 5 + 1 Color kit
  • (1) 20-25F PH for the catalyst
  • (2) 16-120F Kremlin Rexson Pumps
  • (2) 5 Gallon Agitators with lids
  • (3) 55 Gallon Agitators with lids
  • (1) 15c-25 EOS Pump for solvent
  • Airmix® regulators & filters for outbound pressures

EXEL North America was able to analyze their current situation and offer a more suitable solution that would deliver a better “Return on Investment” and reduce their labor costs.

Now, they have a 6-12 month ROI based on less personnel needed to manually mix the 2K materials.  There is no need to re-paint or touch-up because the material is now properly catalyzed.   Finally, the dedicated pumps for the (5) 2k colors deliver a quicker color change with increased productivity.

Kremlin Rexson Creates Paint and Labor Savings for Hydraulic Cylinder Manufacturer

EXEL North America worked with Monarch Industries located in Winnipeg, Canada to reduce their Work-In-Process Time  (WIP).   Monarch’s goal was to be the best manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders.

Monarch Industries application consisted of automatic hydraulic cylinder finishing with an overhead monorail conveyor system.  They were using manual Graco Electrostatic equipment and running three shifts with approximately 10 people per shift.  Monarch was producing 2000 cylinders per day  with varying batch sizes while each cylinder needed to be primed and top coated.  The primer was a one color 2k epoxy, and the top coat was a 2k urethane in various colors.

EXEL North America was able to analyze their current situation and offer a more suitable solution that would offer a better Return on Investment.  To optimize Monarch’s performance, create a long-term paint savings, and reduce the amount of labor, EXEL North America installed the following Kremlin Rexson equipment in Monarch’s facility:

  • 04-120 and 04-220 Flowmax® circulation pumping systems
  • AD-60 Paint Heaters
  • 55 Gallon Agitator and cover lifts
  • Two Cyclomix™ Experts for Primer (one manual and one auto)
  • Two Cyclomix™ Experts for Top Coat (one manual and one automatic)
  • Two Spraymium™ Primer Electrostatic spray guns for primer touch up
  • Two Spraymium™ Top Coat Electrostatic spray guns for top coat touchup
  • Primer automatic application system, RFV2400 dual axis reciprocator following system
    with three PPH308’s
  • Top Coat automatic application system with RFV2400 dual axis reciprocator following
    system with three PPH308

One of the reasons this was a success was because the RFV2400 system allowed us to only spray on the apex of the cylinders, which provided a much higher Transfer Efficiency rate than previous systems.  The system allows for rapid color change with fresh urethane at all times and we were able to control  the process with an RFID control system.

EXEL North America was able to help Monarch Industries save on their painting costs.  The paint costs went from $1.50 per average  cylinder down to $1.00 per cylinder.   With the new system in place, all cylinders are finished during one shift while the old system required three shifts with 10 people on each  shift.  In addition to paint costs savings, we were able to create a labor savings of approximately 20 people.

Caskets, Yeah, We’ll Paint Those Too

It’s not Halloween, but what better holiday than New Year’s to start painting caskets around here. Whether you need to paint a casket, or anything else like a casket, with a robot or by hand, we have the right spray application equipment and paint delivery systems for the job. Yes, even caskets get a nice class A Finish to their surface. Wood caskets or metal caskets, you name, we’ll paint it. You can use air assisted airless Kremlin Rexson manual spray guns or even SAMES electrostatic bells and electrostatic spray guns. Some caskets are painted with plural component materials and the components are automatically mixed with our Cyclomix Expert Metering system. To get the best quality though, we decided to do the entire system ourself so our customer only had to do 1-Stop shopping. No better way to start the year off than shipping in some caskets for painting.
