The parts are now all painted and decorated and we are midway in assembly. Last time we spoke about casting, trimming and polishing of the raw parts before they could receive their base paint. When all the parts have had this treatment, they will move from our ground level floor, where casting and trimming takes place, up to the 3rd floor where our base paint and mask spray departments are located. A final step has to be done before finally coating the parts with their base paint though: cleaning.
All parts will be washed and cleaned, so that the paint adheres to the surfaces of the raw parts in the most durable way. In our new facility we can choose three different techniques for base painting: 1.
Automated Electrostatic painting. Robot painting. Hand spray painting. The electrostatic painting is a fully automated paint street where parts are hung on metal suspenders and these in their turn are hung onto a conveyer belt that leads them through a fully enclosed spray booth. By running a positive electric current through the raw parts and a negative electric current through the paint, it will further improve the adhering of paint and surfaces, further enhancing quality and durability.
Robot painting is a new technique in die cast manufacturing, and we are one of the pioneers in this field. Having not one, but even two of these set ups running in our production facility right now. Raw parts are spread evenly on square rosters. The roster fits onto an automated base that can rotate degrees.
A spray guy in mounted on CNC controlled beams that allow movement on all three axes. Simply said, the robot will paint all parts from one side, the roster will rotate 90 degrees, the robot will spray again, and this process repeats itself until all sides of the parts are evenly painted.
Automated painting is very stable and ensures the same high quality on each and every part. But due to the shape of the raw parts, the manner in which we can hang them on the conveyer belt or place them on the rosters, sometimes that will mean that certain angles are a bit harder to reach. In that case we rely on our paint masters to literally paint them by hand with airbrush painting. For each and every part we decide which painting technique will give your model the optimum results.
After painting the parts will be transported to the ovens to bake. This again will further enhance durability. When the parts have their base paint, we can start the decoration process. Here too we have three main decorating techniques: 1. Mask spraying 2. Tampo printing 3. The sheet will be shaped around the model and the area that needs to be decorated will remain open.
This way when the decoration team will hand spray the secondary colour, only the exposed area will be painted, whilst the rest will be shielded. Tampo printing gives us a high-quality decoration. Mostly used for logos, and striping. Where the etching is done, the surface is a bit lower. Then paint is put onto that steel plate, the top surface is wiped clean, so only the deeper etched area has paint remaining. This gets picked up by a pad or tampon and then is transferred stamped onto the part that needs to be decorated.
This is all done on tampo machines also called pad-printing , so every part will be fully identical. With all parts now having received their base paint and decorations, we can do the sub-assembly and final assembly. Here all parts finally come together and will result in your completed AC model. Here too we see many different ways to our disposal: screwing, riveting, gluing, friction fitting, it all depends on the parts we need to assemble, if they have to incorporate function, what the best result for outlook is etc.
Your AC is now in the final stages of assembly and we will finish the models late September, after which we will prepare the models for shipment. You can expect your model to arrive around 6 weeks later on your doorstep! The next update will show a finished model.

AC imperial datasheet en The most compact 9-axle crane on the market With a carrier length of This makes it the perfect choice for all heavy-duty projects that require not just power, but also maneuverability. Versatile Large crane projects can come with an extremely wide range of challenges. This is why having a crane that can be flexibly adapted to tackle any situation is a great advantage, and the Demag AC is a prime example of this with its numerous boom variants, its central jack leg for heavy-load lifts, and a meter outrigger base that enables it not to take up more footprint than a tonne crane. Enhanced lifting capacity with IC-1 Plus Thanks to its innovative IC-1 Plus control system, the Demag AC can even handle lifts that are normally the exclusive job of larger cranes. Instead, the crane can always take full advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity.
