Cefla's Unidry

From Italian finishing specialist Cefla, the Unidry-G is a flatline, gas drying system that allows water-based paints to dry six to eight times faster than traditional systems, says the company.

"UniDry-G is a gas-powered, linear drying system that provides the optimal combination of reduced dry time, compact size, and minimized environmental footprint. It reduces dry time by 6-8 times when compared to traditional drying methods and the size of the in-feed opening can accommodate a variety of part shapes," says Cefla.

Cefla will showcase the system at the upcoming AWFS Fair in Las Vegas on July 20-23. The company is at booth #933.

Cefla says the unit, which measures 4 feet wide and 8 feet long, can fit into any size shop as an in-line or stand-alone unit.

"This system is unique in that it utilizes either natural gas or propane, as opposed to convection-style ovens. The oven’s conveyor table and overall dimensions are optimized for integrating with new or existing finishing lines. It houses a heat-tolerant, durable and looping conveyor belt that facilitates a continuous feed. Encased flatline drying can reduce part contamination within a small footprint."
