As part of our commitment to manufacturing energy efficient machines, our Olympian range of budget spraybooths now feature LED lighting as standard – an industry first for spraybooths in this price bracket! Todd Engineering are the first UK spraybooth manufacturer to completely phase out Fluorescent tubes in our spraybooth lighting systems, allowing our customers to benefit from the enhanced lighting quality, reliability, long service life and energy savings offered by LED lighting technology.
Todd Engineering are proud to be the first spraybooth manufacturer to include LED lighting as standard on all of our product range, the new lighting system has been extensively researched and developed by our design team over the past 12 months. The design specifications provide a perfectly lit environment for painters to turn out a perfect finish every time, with lux levels exceeding 1750 and a colour temperature of 5600K at 90CRI colours appear more vivid and vibrant. The new system also cuts energy consumption in half compared to conventional fluorescent tubes and provide a longer life of 50,000hrs.
Todd Engineering were invited to quote this prestigious project for the Stugess Motor Group back in 2016, we are proud to have been selected to undertake this contract to provide a full turnkey solution for the fitting out of their brand new state-of-the-art PDI Centre. This installation includes two Poseidon 4000 Series spraybooths with full downdraught floors excavated into the ground which feature space saving roof mounted plant, LED Lighting, Eco+ Energy Save Mode, Cabin Auto-Pressurization Management System, Touch Screen Control Panels and built-in spraybooth vehicle lifts. Alongside the two main spraybooths we have also installed aluminium repair bays, preparation bays, Paint mixing room and storage areas. Through our close working relationships with other market leading brands we have outfitted the bodyshop with Minden Centralised dust extraction and Todd Engineering took care of all service connections, compressed air ring mains, supply of ABAC compressor and even the installation of Calor LPG tanks to supply the facility.
Todd Engineering has just completed another Prestigious Spraybooth installation for the United States Airforce which comes of the back of the last install in 2012, this time it included moving the shot blast bay and installing a New Titan Tandem Commercial Spraybooth, this had the luxury of a roller shutter in the middle so it could be operated as one Spraybooth for large parts or 2 smaller Spraybooths for lots of different components.
This also had to be done on a short timescale as we were working on a air force base that was in full operational mode, the spraybooth installation also incorporates a high-tech aerosol fire suppressant and detection system, all provided and installed by ourselves.
Todd Engineering does seem to be flying all round the world this year with great success.
This mammoth build project in Bahrain was started in early 2016 and has now been completed just before Christmas.
This sprawling bodyshop complex is laid out in a multistorey building over five floors with each level being connected by service ramps which allow for two direction traffic flow.
This project has been one of the biggest we have undertaken overseas and also one of the most impressive, the level of detail requested by the client is very evident and the latest’s specification Todd Engineering Spraybooths meet that demand from a performance point of view and aesthetics as well. The tiled floors complete the very high-tech and clinical feel of the facility.
The list of high performance equipment is equally impressive; with two Poseidon Series Spraybooths incorporating all the latest advancements in energy saving ECO technology, LED lighting and a performance upgrade to 15kW inlet and extract motors. Robotic drying arches complete the high-tech specification, with each booth and prep bay housing one of these impressive bit’s of kit!
The two Prep bays have 7 kW plant to ensure the prepping dust is removed very effectively and doesn’t go back into the main workshop.
There are also three Aluminium bays with electric roller shutter doors and three Window tinting bays with electric curtains, all the bays and working areas have our LED lighting and dont forget the sunken rail system and skates to aid productivity in the Spraybooths as well.
The complex will be in full operation in January, the staff will be enjoying this impressive facility.
Part 2 of the new installation at Aberdeen after the installation at Glasgow has now been completed and both new sites are finished and up and running.
The Aberdeen site has the new Poseidon Series Spraybooth with Low Profile HVEX Floor, ECO+ Energy Save Mode and Full LED lighting, this is coupled with an Extra tall Olympian Series Spraybooth with LED lighting and side Paint mix room which matched the clean, smart and efficient layout of the Glasgow site.
The Mercedes Sytner Sunderland Smart repair center is now fully completed, awaiting the staff to move in and take advantage of this very special smart repair facility with all the modern repair equipment inbuilt and to hand to create a one stop shop Complex. Featuring Spraybooth with full Low Bake facility and Prep & Paint Bays.
Sytner Mercedes Sunderland groundwork’s have just been completed and the build process has now started.
Completion is due in 2 weeks time to hand the complex over.
Sytner Mercedes Newcastle have just taken the keys for Todd engineering’s latest solution to the complete package to smart repair in a Box.
This is a complete solution as a turn key package that has the compressor/dryer, built-in dust extraction(Minden as our partner), built-in lifts, skate system operating over the 3 bays, roller doors on both sides to the Low Bake oven in the middle, each prep bay has extraction and heat lamps supplied to dry primer.
The larger of the 2 prep bays has a complete wheel table with extraction, full size Paint Mix room to accommodate Schemes and is supplied with the latest full size ECO friendly Gun Wash machine .
The automatic Dust extraction and lift controls, as well as the ability to turn the booth on and off from within the cabins through the use of ATEX controls makes life easy for the painter and improves efficiency.
This solution will handle smart repair with ease and also do the larger jobs as well, which will free up space in the traditional Body Shop.
Sytner Sunderland have ordered the same complete complex and is being built as we speak.
Every now and again we get to do something completely different,in this case we were asked to build a room that used old chip fat oil and Beef dripping that has been placed in what can be described as a wheelie bin, be placed in and melted.This also had to be built over grids that will allow any spillage to drain away.With the room heating up to 99 degrees and blowers low down to evenly distribute the heated airflow which should allow the fat to melt over a 5 hour period.the trials are about to begin once the rest of the refinery plant is built.
The melted fat will be sucked up and refined and then sold on to power stations as a green energy fuel.
