A major automotive manufacturer needed a more efficient and consistent process to remove dirt, dust and particulate from car body surfaces prior to painting. Existing process consisted of 4 to 6 associates manually wiping the entire surface with tack cloths as they passed through the zone. The manual process had proven costly and inefficient do to the tedious nature of the job and human error in trying to reach all areas.
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES PROVIDED
Autotac provided and installed an Automatic 5 Roll Tack-off (Feather Duster) system which utilized ostrich feathers, ionization, and a high-volume exhaust system to effectively remove dirt, dust and contaminates from the surface of the job.
- Decreased operating costs by reducing needed manual tack-off. Estimated savings of at least $400,000 per year.
