Todd engineering are pleased to have been chosen as the Spraybooth supplier for Fix Auto Penzance. The award winning bodyshop is continuing to expand, including a redesign of the current site. This redesign will feature a spectacular 3-bay spraybooth with integrated E5 Greentech gas catalytic Arch. The combination of top of the line 3 bay spraybooth and the latest drying technology will optimise their work flow, to help keep up with the growing work load.
Todd Engineering has also been appointed to install Greentech technology at a second Fix Auto site, the impressive E9 along with the Hercules booth containing the E6, will be installed for Dai Sims at Fix Auto Tonypandy.
The E9 is suited to light commercial vehicles and includes power assisted positioning of the panels, making it suitable for a larger range of vehicles. The E9 has everything needed to increase productivity by up to 50% and will also reduce their energy consumption by up to 80%. The Hercules is a tried and tested new product from Todd engineering, that combines the high performance and quality of top of the range booths, with the very latest in IR Gas Catalytic drying technology. The ultra-fast curing times associated with using this technology presents bodyshops with higher throughput, efficiency and more substantial energy savings compared to conventional curing technologies.
Earlier in the year Todd Engineering completed a prestigious installation on the Mediterranean coast, for Yacht Repair Specialists Cantieri Di Imperia in Italy
We went back to service and check in on the Titan CV Spraybooth.
This Titan was specially modified to accommodate an area of the existing building without encroaching into surrounding areas of the workshop, air handling plant was positioned at an elevated height so that it appeared ‘floating’ to minimise the footprint of the spraybooth installation. The cabin features PVC dividing curtains to allow the cabin the be split into four independently operated sections, the specification also includes Todd Engineering’s LED lighting and Inverter variable speed drives as standard.
Everything still working perfectly and in great condition. See below for photos from our visit!
Checking up a booth we installed at the US base in Germany to complete the annual service.
Here at Todd Engineering we want to ensure you can get the most out of your booth, this means keeping it running smoothly. We acknowledge there is going to be the odd occasion when a unit will either malfunction or break-down. We offer, in the first instance, technical advice over the telephone, or if necessary we will dispatch an engineer to attend to your spraybooth.
We have now finished work at Equi-trek, producing our first Spraybooth with integrated Bio-mass system.
The outcome is very impressive.
See previous posts for more information on Equi-trek and the Bio-mass system.
Rapid development is being made at the new installation for UK based company Equi-trek at Stocksbridge.
Equi-trek is the largest producer of horseboxes and trailers in the UK, and this Spraybooth with integrated Biomass system is a first for Todd Engineering.
The Biomass system uses a boiler which burns logs, pellets or chips; this connects to a hot water system to heat the spraybooth. This kind of renewable energy source is a low carbon option and is becoming increasingly popular with larger companies.
Todd Engineering has recently completed the first installation of the new Hercules 600 series Spraybooth. The Hercules is the forefront of the new partnership between Todd Engineering and Green Tech Dryers. Through this business partnership, the Hercules 6000 Series Spraybooths can combine the high performance and quality of Todd Engineering’s top of the range booths with the very latest in IR Gas Catalytic drying technology.
Green Tech will be visiting the UK soon to see the first two Hercules Spraybooths, which is located at Bruntingthorpe Integrated Automotive Solutions (BIAS).
The spraybooth specification includes the Greentech E6 robotized IR arch which features nine specific catalytic lamps. The ultra-fast curing times associated with using this technology present bodyshops with greater throughput, efficiency and vast energy savings compared to conventional curing technologies.
The technology works by passing natural methane or LPG gas through a platinum-based catalyst which functions to split the carbon and hydrogen atoms of the gas molecules to create heat. That energy is then passed through the front of the catalyst where it mixes with oxygen; the oxygen combines with carbon molecules to produce CO2 and with hydrogen to create H2O. The result is Infrared energy that is emitted out of the device in a uniform low-intensity heat.
The heat is in the form of medium wavelength energy which has a spectrum wavelength that can directly penetrate the molecule of any paint product; therefore allowing a full cure in just a few minutes!
- Drying time is reduced by more than 50%
- Fuel consumption is reduced by 80%
- Productivity Increased by 30%
- Rapid Payback on Investment
- Safe, Flameless heater technology approved for ATEX hazardous
- Environmentally Friendly – Gas Catalytic Panels do not produce Carbon Monoxide (CO) or Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), moreover they abate VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) with consequent reduction of toxic
The Hercules features Todd Engineering’s latest LED lighting and Inverter variable speed drive technology to further enhance energy savings.
- Includes Greentech E6 Robotized IR Arch
- 25,000m³/hr Air Handling Capacity
- Full Downdraught with Low Profile Raised Floors Available
- Aerodynamic energy efficient direct drive fans
- Inverter Variable Speed Drive Motor Control
- Latest LED Lighting Technology
Todd Engineering is still ongoing work for one of the UK’s biggest car dealership groups, Pendragon. They have been working up and down the country on multiple sites, including Evans Halshaw Falkirk and Manchester.
More locations booked in for installations soon.
A new and exciting installation for Todd Engineering. These are the first stages of a commercial spraybooth taking shape for UK based company Equi-trek. Equi-Trek is the largest producer of horseboxes and trailers in the UK, and the only British company to manufacture an entire range of horse transport from lightweight, towable trailers up to 26 tonnes motorised horseboxes.
The reason this booth is so exciting for Todd Engineering is that for the first time we are incorporating Biomass heating. The Biomass system uses a boiler which burns logs, pellets or chips; this connects to a hot water system to heat the spraybooth.
There are many benefits to using Biomass heating including it being a low carbon option and a Renewable energy source. Renewable energy is generated from natural resources such as the sun, wind, and water, using technology which ensures that the energy stores are naturally replenished and is becoming increasing popular with larger companies.
Todd Engineering has now taken its second delivery from
Things are moving fast here at our head office.
The first of our brand new HERCULES sparybooth is being installed at Walton’s Bruntingthorpe.
The ‘Hercules’ 6000 Series Spraybooths combine the high performance and quality of Todd Engineering’s top of the range booths with the very latest in IR Gas Catalytic drying technology.
The spraybooth specification includes the Greentech E6 robotized IR arch which features 9 specific catalytic lamps.
