Painting plant for aircraft components

RUAG MRO International’s aircraft paint shop in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich has recently been equipped with a new combined painting and drying plant. After a two-week test phase the addition now started operations.

The plant consists of a painting cabin and a directly connected drying cabin and offers sufficient space for painting larger aircraft components such as elevators and rudders, landing flaps or cabin components. “In the new facility, we can carry out even the most demanding paint jobs to the highest quality,” says Stefan Schulz, Team Leader Paint Shop. In addition to the high technical standard, the closed arrangement of the two cabins is a particular advantage, as it allows a direct transition from the painting process to the drying process. This eliminates the risk of soiling and helps save time. “While one component dries in the second booth, we can already coat the next component in the first booth,” explains Schulz.
Customers who have their aircraft or components painted in RUAG’s one-stop store benefit from the highest quality of workmanship in individual and very demanding paint jobs, while at the same time shortening throughput times – and thus increasing the availability of their aircraft. In terms of environmental protection, energy consumption and occupational safety, the painting plant is also state of the art and clearly exceeds the applicable requirements in these areas.
