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.
Rob Walker (Body shop Manager) is enjoying the new Spraybooth installation at Reed Auto’s, the team pulled a great effort to get it all up and running in a short time much to the clients satisfaction. Rob has added the finishing touches and it all looks very pristine.
From the team at Todd’s we wish you well moving forward.
Todd engineering are pleased to have been chosen as the Spray booth supplier for both the new Dentec Body shops at Glasgow and Aberdeen.
The Poseidon LP was the chosen Booth for the high airflow and having incorporated all the latest LED lights(1750 LUX) ,ECO drive technology and Full Hydrocure system on a Low Profile floor saving on costly and time consuming civil works but not compromising on performance.Also incorporated is a Mercedes spec Aluminium bay with quiet running extraction and electric curtains.The mixing room has been incorporated between booths and all machinery has been hidden by panels and access doors,this gives it a sleek look and keeps the quiet machinery even quieter in the workshop(best of both worlds)
Phase 3 @ Glasgow is nearing completion and phase 1 has started at Aberdeen.
The whole complex has been designed to maximize painter efficiency and it also comes with that show stopping fit and finish,from mixing room table to window trims and control panels.
