Sept. 27, 2016—Symach announced that 46 repair shops across Australia, North America, Europe and the Middle East are now using its FixLine process. 

The FixLine system consist of a layout and repair process that combines Symach’s Drytronic robotic paint drying technology and the Symach Paint Application Process. Symach is one of the first companies to have produced a robot for drying paint.

“Compared to conventional methods, the FixLine system reduces the average cost of repair by 25 percent and the key-to- key time to approximately two days,” said Osvaldo Bergaglio, CEO of Symach.

FixLine allows for a more organized workflow continuously throughout the day so a shop is able to use approximately 30 percent fewer technicians while still repairing the same number of vehicles per day. SprayTron and KombiTron, the two available configurations, can repair 10 cars per day with one painter and 20 cars per day with two painters, respectively.

“Symach’s Drytronic technology dries body filler, primer, waterborne and clear in one minute and 30 seconds per panel, which allows a continuous workflow during each phase of the repair,” said Bergaglio. “This means that damaged cars can be repaired without interruption and technicians don’t have to handle three or more different cars at a time during the working process like they do today.”
