How Automated Finishing Will Save Your Business Money?
When manually finishing products for the marketplace there are many factors that could reduce the profitability of your business. The quality of the finishing could be inconsistent, staffing shortages could create a gap in production, or the cost of labor could lower your profit margins. These are important considerations for deciding whether an automated finishing solution is right for your business.
What is Automated Finishing?
When manufacturing cabinets, doors, windows, building products, glass, moulding, or architectural millwork each piece requires finishing touches before being sent to the showroom floor. Typically finishes include sanding, spraying, drying, and coating. You could hire someone to do each of those steps in your manufacturing plant, or you could have a machine that automatically does it all for you.
Why Buy Automated Finishing Equipment?
There are a number of factors that should go into your decision. Here are some of the most important points to consider.
The first impression is everything. If a customer sees that your product has a poor finish, or the quality is inconsistent, then they are going to keep searching for another product. Automated finishing removes the risk of poor quality by consistently providing the same finishing touches to each component of your product line.
Today’s Labor Market is Tough
With low unemployment rates it can prove challenging to find skilled candidates to join your team. Once you find someone, proper training typically requires 6 months – 2 years. And because manually finishing products can be such hard work, the turnover rate for these positions tend to be high. In addition wages continue to push higher for these positions, which can eat away your profit margins year over year.
As a comparison, an automated finishing system will never call in sick, expect a raise, limit production capabilities due to fatigue after a long day of painting, or cause the quality of your product to suffer due to a hangover.
How many units are you manufacturing each day? Compare that to how many you are finishing each day. Odds are it’s taking you a lot longer to finish your products due to the time consuming nature of spraying, drying, and sanding. An automated finishing solution typically reduces the amount of labor required by 50%!
Spray machine finished kitchen cabinets 75% faster than manual spraying.
Automated finishing is more efficient than manual and reduces overall costs. A Superfici America spray machine offers high application efficiency (transfer efficiency), uses less paint resulting in lower coating costs, and it emits lower VOCs, which equals lower permitting costs and a reduced carbon footprint. Automated systems can also use coatings that typically cannot be applied manually, like UV coatings.
How Much Do Automated Finishing Systems Cost?
The answer depends on your specific business needs, but here’s an example to give you an idea of what you might expect. An entry-level spray machine costs approximately $50,000. At face value that may seem like a big investment, but let’s put it into context.
If you finance the spray machine for 5 years, then you’re paying roughly $45/day. Hiring a painter at $8/hour would cost you $64/day. That’s a painter who may or may not show up, who is going to get tired and produce lower quality work, and whose production is limited. And if that painter quits you have the difficult task to find and replace them.

How it Works?
SPD2500D CNC SPRAY MACHINE
SPD2500D-3D CNC SPRAY MACHINE
What are the advantages of spray coating?
Firstly, spray coating ensures all sides of the piece are covered. Secondly, the product shape is unimportant and, since it is not a contact-type coating, different tolerances between products are compensated for automatically.
How can I measure coating quality?
While quality is subjective, it is possible to measure the quantity of coating applied at each point. It’s also possible to measure gloss or matt levels using appropriate instruments.
What are the consumption factors I need to take into account in a spray coating process?
Lacquer is the key factor to be monitored, as it is the most expensive aspect of the process. Any variations can make the process more or less sustainable and also have an impact on process quality.
The other consumable will concern some compressed air and electricity.
How simple is it to use a spray coating machine?
This depends on the type of machine, the type of conveyor (Rod/Pin Chain or continuous belt) and the type of filtration (paper or water).
- Those who opt for a Rod/Pin conveyor machine will observe many similarities with manual coating methods: start-up, spray gun feeding, cleaning and replacing filters.
- Those who go for a machine with continuous belt conveying will need to perform preparation and maintenance associated with the retrieval and cleaning trolley; nevertheless, these tasks are simple.
What’s the difference between an anthropomorphic robot and a Cartesian robot?
Differences relate to the degree of freedom, the type/number of movements they can make and the angles they can achieve.
- Anthropomorphic robot: more freedom, virtually unlimited 3-way movement. Unlimited spray gun positioning.
- Cartesian robot: less freedom, but can accelerate and move much faster. Limited spray gun positioning.
How long does it take to clean a spray coating machine?
Cleaning times vary according to requirements. End-of-shift cleaning, week-end cleaning and extensive cleaning before a prolonged idle time must be scheduled. The end-of-shift cleaning time, for instance, depends on the product conveying systems, and on the type of overspray filtration; it usually ranges between a few minutes (12-15) up to 25-30 minutes.
- On machines with pin conveying and paper filters, very little time is needed. All you need to do is clean the guns and pump, and replace and discard filters as necessary.
- Continuous belt machines require more time at the end of the shift as maintenance tasks concerning the belt retrieval and cleaning device needed to be performed.
With paper-based filtration, the filters must be replaced; water-based filtration requires no maintenance as the system continuously “self-cleans” during operation.
Can I measure lacquer consumption on spray coating machines?
Thanks to flow control systems, you certainly can. However, the coating quality is not necessarily strictly linked to lacquer consumption.
I want to switch from manual coating to automatic coating, what do I need?
Space requirements are similar to those of a manual booth. All tasks can be performed by the same worker who, instead of coating, operates the machine.
Is a coating machine very maintenance-intensive?
Usually, it isn’t, especially if the machine is correctly maintained and cleaned every time it is used. It is a general truth that daily care often extends the machine’s life and prevents malfunctioning.
As with manual coating system, maintenance largely concerns the pump and spray guns (i.e. the coating application system).
In the case of a machine with continuous belt conveying, cleaning and retrieval system maintenance is also required.
Machines with water filtration will also require maintenance of the continuous filtration device.
Is there a maintenance service available in my area?
Our network of distributors and branches stretches across the globe. Finding the service you need in your country should be easy. Alternatively, we can send spare parts and technicians directly from our headquarters in just a few days.
Can I manage colour changes?
Yes, dedicated procedures mean they can be managed quickly on all our machines.
Can I manage programming of my workpieces easily?
In the case of oscillating spray machines, all you need to do is provide some parameters and, thanks to the incoming piece reading system, each piece is then coated according to the information entered.
With robots, different work modes are possible so it is necessary to define the way and the order in which you wish to execute strokes and whether to coat certain product parts or not. Programmed this way, each piece loaded and read by the reading system is automatically processed as per the saved information.
Are edges also spray coated?
Of course. This technology was specifically designed to coat surfaces and edges.
What sort of finishes can I achieve with a spray coating machine?
Any finish is possible. However, a given finish can or cannot be achieved depending on factors that are not always and not only linked with the coating machine. A correct preparation of the material is necessary, and very important; proper drying is just as important.
What do I need apart from the spray coating machine?
It is advisable to have a drying system connected to the machine. This ensures more consistent results. It also lowers the percentage of waste compared to simple air drying, which involves some risk of contamination. What’s more, some finishes require special drying conditions (temperature, air speed) so an oven is definitely recommended where certain finishes are needed.
Automatic conveying, loading and unloading systems can be required – in addition to sanding machines, cleaning systems or machines, drying ovens, etc.
How can I boost productivity?
By raising the number of machines or lines, and by increasing (within certain limits) the speed of the machine itself.
How flexible is the machine?
Extremely. Just replacing the product in the spray guns and making a few other adjustments can radically alter the coating. Flexibility is even more pronounced where pin/rod conveying machines are used, as there are no tasks related to the lacquer retrieval and belt cleaning system.
Are sustainable coating machines available?
Sustainability varies from one machine to the next, but depends more on the actual coating process.
Can I get spare parts easily?
Yes. You can order spare parts by email or phone.
What shapes can my items have?
For supported (“flat”) items, any shape is acceptable but with two prevailing dimensions. This allows the item to be fed through the line/machine and guarantees an acceptable degree of item stability.
Can items of different shapes be sprayed at the same time?
Yes, this is possible.
What kind of robots are needed for 3D item coating?
Cartesian or anthropomorphic robots.
