Two independent shop owners developed their own robotic paint drying technology, giving shops more options for a technology that’s designed to dry paint within minutes instead of hours. Here’s an introduction to their equipment, and updates on the competition.
Tim Beal, owner of Beal's Auto Body & Paint, has developed his own robotic paint drying technology. For this Adapt episode of CollisionCast, he sat down with FenderBender to discuss why he entered into the arena and how his technology works.
When Rydell Collision Center first began using gas catalytic drying, the process resulted in a bit of an issue: it moved vehicles through the paint booth so quickly that it was tough for the shop staff to keep pace. Randy Sattler soon discovered that solving this problem would require a group effort.
