The finish of interior trim and decorative parts is important to modern car buyers. Creating and protecting that finish through the complete production process is vital. Buchner’s painting tray allows producers to secure parts on it directly at the injection molding machine and safely transport them to the painting line. There, the tray supports the painting process by firmly holding the part, presenting the surfaces at the desired angles, covering areas not allowed to have overspray and including exhaust openings. The finished parts still on the tray then can be safely transported to the automotive manufacturer for final assembly. From the injection molding to final assembly, the parts are perfectly secured and need to be touched only twice.
Because of the reduced handling and therefore the reduced risk of damaging the finish, in combination with endless design possibilities, the thermoformed painting tray is a cost-effective and secure way to deliver high-quality finishes.
