  • Tank for a cathodic dip coating line made of Polystone® P homopolymer

    Since its foundation in 1951 the company from Ledeč nad Sázavou, Czech Republic, has developed into one of the leading manufacturers of equipment for surface treatment. Martin Zikmunda supplies customers throughout Europe – such as BMW Motorrad in Berlin, Spandau. After 40 years of service, BMW Motorrad decided to replace the cathodic dip coating line at the plant in Spandau, Germany, with a new one. KOVOFINIŠ was awarded the contract for the design and construction of the plant, which has a tank with a capacity of 26 m3. Cathodic dip coating For the quality and longevity of motorcycles, the process is crucial. The complete bodyshell is primed using the electrochemical process. It protects the bodies from corrosion and serves as the base for applying the paint. To apply the primer layer, the body shell is immersed in an electrically conductive paint. This allows complete painting of all surfaces, cavities and edges. New construction method The system is designed to last for several decades. Designers must make many decisions and take into account several factors. “When planning, we take into account influences such as the dipping varnish, the dimension and static. We want to produce the right plant for each and every customer. And by the right plant we mean the best,” says Zikmunda. The team is always looking for ways to improve the design for its customers. For this new project, the developers of KOVOFINIŠ chose a completely new tank construction method.
