Todd Engineering have recently completed a new Titan Commercial Spraybooth installation for the worlds largest package delivery company UPS, the new spraybooth facility is part of a brand new 32,000 square meter package sorting and delivery facility at the DP World London Gateway logistics site in the south east of England. At close to £120 million, this project constitutes one of UPS’s largest infrastructure investments outside of the Untied States in the company’s history. The Facility, currently going through the final phase of completion, will act as a UK hub and distribution centre for the local area as well as key gateway to UPS’s global transportation network. Once operational, the facility will be able to process approximately 30,000 packages per hour, with room for further expansion.
Using Aconex Management Software, Todd Engineering were able to coordinate with main building contractors Buckingham Group, UPS representatives and all other contractors relevant to the spraybooth installation to ensure the project was delivered on time and met all requirements.
The Titan spraybooth includes Wallman Pneumatic access platforms which provides safe access for the painters when refinishing high sided vehicles, this eliminates the need for steps and other forms of access which can reduce productivity and safety. The spraybooth specification includes Todd Engineering’s state-of-the-art LED Lighting, Eco+ Energy Save Mode, Inverter Variable Speed Drive Motor Control with Cabin Auto-Pressurisation and a PLC control panel complete with full colour TFT Touch Screen Display.

Long established company I.Wilkinson & Sons have recently moved into new premises in the heart of Derby, founded in 1904 as repairers of horse drawn vehicles, the company developed over the years to become coachbuilders to the motor trade. Today I.Wilkinson & Sons are specialists in prestigious vehicle restoration and as part of continued investment into having the latest technology for the restoration process the decision was taken that larger premises were needed.
Todd Engineering were chosen to provide the equipment for the new facility which comprised of a semi-downdraught Spartan 2000 Series spraybooth, preparation and mechanical booth. All bays were outfitted with our state-of-the-art LED Lighting.
Todd Engineering has recently completed a new fast-track repair facility in Worthing for the AD Williams Group, this state-of-the-art facility comprised of six smart repair preparation booths and two full downdraught Spartan 2000 Series spraybooths with low profile floors. Vehicle movements are aided with the use of a side loading track and skate system which runs through the entire length of the installation. This new facility is the latest addition to the AD Williams group of BSI accredited bodyshops and continues their commitment on equipping their state-of-the-art bodyshops with the latest in accident repair technology.
The spraybooths include LED Lighting and inverter variable speed drives as standard and have also been outfitted with Todd Engineering’s Hydracure water based curing system to achieve faster curing times.
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.
