CFCM Wagner Logo 400WAGNER completes the product family of airspray guns with a gravity cup gun that enables coating results and efficient material consumption, especially for small-area applications.

In addition to the automatic model TOPFINISH GA 1020/1030, the product family of WAGNER airspray guns also includes the manual gun TOPFINISH GM 1030P with paint connection. The new TOPFINISH GM 1030G with gravity cup can also be used for a wide range of applications in various industrial sectors, such as the wood, metal or plastics industries. 

For flexible processing of low- to high-viscosity materials with a high solids content, the GM 1030G, just like the GM 1030P, has a nozzle with a maximum material passage of 9 millimetres. All components in contact with the material are made of durable stainless steel. Solvent-resistant seals allow uncomplicated use of the gun with both water- and solvent-based materials. Depending on the application, a wide range of proven air caps, nozzle sizes and other accessory components can be used, each also compatible with the GA 1020/1030 and GM 1030P models. The different hard plastic cups can be used several times. 

Like the GM 1030P, the new gravity cup variant also produces a uniform spray pattern thanks to various functions. The optimized air channel ensures low paint mist and saves material consumption. The GM 1030G is equipped with a fixable needle stroke adjustment for process-reliable coating with a consistent material flow rate. "This additionally optimizes material use. Overall, an application efficiency of up to 88 percent can be achieved during coating," reports Peter Neu, Senior Product Manager at WAGNER. The large material and air passages of the components also support atomization and at the same time allow fast working. 

As with all other WAGNER guns, great importance has been attached to the long service life and easy GM 1030G. The two-part nozzle, consisting of the nozzle head and nozzle nut, is sufficient to replace only the nozzle head when necessary instead of replacing the complete nozzle. But that's not the only reason for a significant reduction in the cost of wearing parts: long-life needle packings and solvent-resistant seals made of polyethylene contribute to lower maintenance costs and high availability. The desired spray jet width can be set with just one rotary knob. The gun's low weight and ergonomic design support fatigue-free work even over longer periods.

CFCM TeknaGun 400

Carlisle Fluid Technologies’ DeVilbiss TEKNA spray gun was recently featured on an episode of Detroit Muscle on Power Nation TV to bring a 1973 AMC Javelin back to life. Featuring a high finish quality and operator ergonomics, The TEKNA gun’s high transfer efficiency provides materials savings for solvent or waterbase paints.

The spray gun technology, which has been used in automotive refinishing processes for many years, is designed to spray all types of materials and comes with high efficiency or HVLP air caps that produce large spray patterns with even material distribution.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
