Between the end of March and mid-May 2015 Dürr dismantled almost all the old lines and installed new paint booths with a total length of 150 meters in the existing building. In addition, 24 painting robots were installed, together with a kilometer of conveyor systems, 14 kilometers of paint circulation lines, 100 kilometers of cable, new air supply units and driers. The dip painting line was also refurbished. At the peak of the work Dürr was coordinating more than 1,200 workers on the site via an international team of 95 experts. The smooth handling of the order placed in 2014 enabled the work to be completed six days ahead of the scheduled seven weeks.
Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG: “Dürr has particular expertise in complex upgrades. Thanks to the experience and commitment of our teams we ensure that the most demanding schedules are met. After all, every day counts for our customers. We are expecting a rising demand for upgrade projects in China since more and more production facilities are starting to show their age.”
