Unique

Unique equipment that makes STRENGHT measurement a tool to increase productivity, with more precision and less variability.

Elimination of external standards

Elimination of external standards and, thus, the propagation of errors related to the manufacture of standardized bases and the inaccuracies associated with the dosing and application.

Productivity Gains

90% reduction in measurement time and adjustment cycle for Bases and Colorants.

Variability Elimination

Elimination of instrumental and human errors (weighing, drying, application, etc.)

Improved measurement R&R.

Automation

Allows 100% automated manufacturing of Bases and Colorants with online control of “Strenght”, Hiding Power and Color Position.

Optimization

Enables the direct production of Paints and Finishes with direct use of Industrial Dispensing Machines and without further adjustments.

Integration Laboratory & Factory

Equipment with Laboratory Version and for Online Process Control, with full integration between Laboratory and Production databases.

Formula Cost Reduction

Reduction in the cost of formulas of Bases and Colorants related to “saturation” of the pigmentation package related to the narrowest range of production.

How the Transmicell enables Industry 4.0 in the Paint Segment:

STRENGTH, HIDING POWER AND COLOR POSITION MEASUREMENT, ONLINE AND IN SECONDS.

SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC TECHNIQUE BY MEASUREMENT OF TRANSMISSION “IN WET WAY"

ROBOTIZED ANALYTICAL SYSTEM, CONTROLLED BY PLC AND “SCADA” SYSTEM.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE RESOURCES FOR ANALYTICAL CONDITION OPTIMIZATION.

Industrial Automation enables high levels of competitiveness.

Advanced Control Strategies with Artificial Intelligence resources, allow a total integration of processes that enable leaps in Productivity and Quality, maximizing business results.

The purpose of this equipment, in essence is:

We create disruptive technology that enables evolutionary leaps in the paint industry sector.

Our focus is to create disruptive technologies enabling the evolution of the paints and coatings segment to a new level of industrialization already present in other segments where Industry 4.0 already has the necessary bases to establish itself.

Common questions.

In order to facilitate the understanding of the technique used at TRANSMICELL, answering some questions, we deveWhat is the STRENGTH of a Colorant? Loped a reasoning and considerations regarding the property of Colorant STRENGTH:

    • The Colorant Strength is a measure that represents how strongly a given colorant affects another when mixed;

     

    • This measure is essential to ensure that you have the right color when mixing colorants;

     

    • Colorant strength is one of the main process quality tests carried out on automotive, industrial and decorative colorants;

     

    • The Colorant Strength Force is also called the Colorant Power, with the English term “STRENGTH”;

     

    • The following figure illustrates the variation of the STRENGTH for different batches of Colorants.
  • The knowledge and control of the STRENGTH in colorants guarantee the delivery of consistent paints to customers in the mixing systems (automotive refinishing, industrial and decorative paints);

 

  • A customer mixes several colorants, according to a formula, to obtain the paint of a car when making a repair or even when composing a color for the decorative painting;

 

  • On the shop floor, the adjusted pigment bases and concentrates provide a fast and effective process for paint manufacturing, reducing cycle time and costs.
    • The current method requires a small amount of colorant be mixed with a large amount of white base;

     

    • The mixture is usually applied by spray gun on a panel that is dried / cured in an oven;

     

    • After drying, the panel is measured on a spectrophotometer using the reflectance technique;

     

    • The measurement is then compared to a measurement stored in a computer, specific to each colorant.
