Industrial Finishes & Systems to Become US Autocure's Exclusive Distributor
July 9, 2019—Industrial Finishes & Systems Inc., a leading distributor of automotive paint, equipment and supplies, recently announced its agreement to be the exclusive distributor for US Autocure.
US Autocure has developed the “Phoenix,” an industry-changing gas catalytic autonomous paint curing technology. Their robotic system has been engineered by auto body veterans Tim Beal and Byron Davis and aerospace engineer Mickey Meyer.
The system utilizes infrared light sources following a programmable pattern to reduce curing time, resulting in shorter overall cycle times and greater shop output. The Phoenix moves along 16 points of articulation, allowing it to follow vehicle or component contours for a thorough cure.
The system reduces cure times, allowing shops to increase output without expanding facilities or adding technicians. The Phoenix is the first and only infrared curing system that is in full compliance to Canadian & US Fire Prevention Class 1, Division 2 standards. As a result, the Phoenix can be installed in pre- existing paint booths without separate enclosures.
