Metallisation Arc Spray 140/250 metal spray system


The Metallisation Arc 140E is an affordable medium capacity, lightweight Arc Spray system for the engineering and anti-corrosive sector.

The Metallisation ARC140/S250-CL twin wire arc spray system with a 5m pull only setup is ideally suited to small engineering job shops where a combination of manual or tool post mounted spraying is performed. Alternatively, the S250 energiser, setup with a push/pull drive system and 5m, 10m or 20m supplies is ideally suited to small anti-corrosion applications where higher material throughput is not necessary (spraying small brackets for example). For larger areas, the ARC140/S350-CL with the 350A energiser is recommended. The new Metallisation ARC140/S250-CL (Closed Loop) is a unique blend of ability and innovation. We’ve taken our proven performer, the ARC140 pistol and drive system plus the sealed, switched voltage S250 Energiser and added Closed Loop current control. This enables the operator to set the spray current independent of wire type before starting the job, enabling easier setup and protection of the system from over-current. The control function is now controlled by a simple PLC which ensures improved reliability as less component parts are required. It also makes fault finding simple using a standard multimeter with the I/O for the PLC/ The S250CL features sealed electronics for excellent reliability in the harshest of spray environments. The design also allows for multiple customer-specific packaging options for the wire drive and dispense. In one option, for example, the unit is neatly mounted on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying. Other options include floor or trolley mounting of the wire drive unit. There is no motor in the pistol. Instead, the Arc140/S250-CL uses our patented ‘Synchrodrive’ system, where a single, sealed motor and flexible drive arrangement, powers a reliable, positive drive push/pull up to a length of 20m. This results in a long reach and lightweight flexibility of the pistol and supplies – and more comfortable and productive working conditions for the operator.

The system can be used with the full range of arc extension nozzles, spray concentrator (Arc beam) and Purecoat as well as the Metallisation range of Energizers 250-450Amp. Furthermore the Arc Spray 140 pistol can be robot mounted for automation purposes.
