Painting car bodies all-electrically
The company has already taken a first step in this direction with the “Pardis project” in 2017. Here, a completely energy-autonomous paint shop with a 70% reduction in energy consumption was presented. The technology shift to an all-electric paint shop brings both ecological and economic advantages. Compared to combustion-based systems, all-electric systems are more reliable, more energy-efficient and require less maintenance.
Among the biggest energy guzzlers in the paint shop are the heated pretreatment stages. The pre-treatment stages can also be supplied with electrically heated hot water up to a heat requirement of 400 °C. Instead of the conventional natural gas burner, an electric boiler or a direct electric circulation heater can be used. By operating with carbon-free electricity, the emission of greenhouse gases at the industrial site is significantly reduced.
