Paint option - axpaint box


axpaint box is unique automated painting system which completely integrates all components for a turn-key solution. A difficult problem for painting equipment customers is system integration — making all the components work together.

axpaint box is the solution for medium to high volume painting of panels.


  • Fully integrated turnkey system for 1-color painting of panels
  • RAL or Pantone colors (both available as an option)
  • Fully automatic system with minimal labor
  • High production rate up to 600 lm per hour
  • Paint thickness: 60 – 70 microns wet and 30 – 35 microns dry
  • Minimal space required compared to typical spray painting enclosures
  • Suitable for painting other flat items similar to door panels

Panel Dimensions

  • Length: 1.500 - 14.000 mm
  • Height: 100 - 700 mm (≤ 2.000 mm optional)
  • Thickness: 10 - 100mm (> 100 mm optional)

Advantages & Benefits

All axpaint box users:

  • Increase sales, profits and market share
  • Offer the full range of RAL and/or Pantone colors
  • Offer all panel styles in all colors — residential and industrial
  • No special worker skills required
  • Minimal labor requirements
  • Low painting cost

  • Fast production and drying time
  • Increase sales and income by painting other materials similar to door panels
  • Add the axlacquer box option for spray application of lacquer to increase resistance to corrosion, fading and scratches

Panel Manufacturers

  • Substitute low volume panel manufacturing for a specific color by painting galvanized or white panels
  • Eliminate rarely used color steel coil inventory
  • Reduce costs by painting panels made from coils without paint finish (only galvanization + primer)
  • Use steel coils with incorrect colors — repaint panels at low cost

Door Assemblers

  • Reduce panel inventory for many panel style / color combinations
  • Eliminate panel inventory for rarely used panel style / color combinations

Offer the full range of RAL and/or Pantone colors

System Components

  • axpaint box computer management system
  • Fully enclosed painting enclosure

Production Rates

  • Cleaning time between color changes: ≈ 5 minutes
  • Start-up time: ≈ 5 minutes
  • Shut-down time: ≈ 5 minutes

Garage Doors Example: Every Door a Different Color

  • Average European garage door has a 4.000 mm width with 4 panels
  • Total panel length: 4 m x 4 panels = 16 lm
  • Painting time: 16 lm / 10 lm per minute = 1,6 minutes
  • If every door is a different color, 5 minutes for cleaning between each door
  • Total time for one door: 6,6 minutes
  • Production per hour: 9 doors (144 lm)

Logistics Doors Project Example: 30 Doors All the Same Color

  • Logistic door dimensions: 3.500 x 3.500 mm with 6 panels
  • Total panel length: 3,5 m x 6 = 21 lm
  • Painting time: 21 lm / 10 lm per minute = 2,1 minutes
  • If the logistics doors all have the same color, 5 minutes for cleaning after the 30 door job
  • Total production time: (30 doors x 2,1 minutes) + 5 minutes = 68 minutes
  • Total time for one door: 2,3 minutes
  • Production per hour: 26 doors (546 lm)

Labor and technical details

Labor Requirement

  • Only one worker is required to operate the axpaint box system:
  • Cleaning the system when changing colors
  • Quality control of inbound panels
  • Overall quality control
  • Depending on the production volume and panel lengths, additional workers may be required for loading and unloading panels (automated handling optional)

Painting and Labor Comments

  • Spray painting panels requires quality work with attention to detail
  • Spray painting is unpleasant, boring and hazardous work
  • Workers must wear protective clothing and respirator masks, which are hot and uncomfortable to wear
  • There are many health hazards from long-term paint exposure
  • Door companies have difficulty keeping painting workers
  • High pay for workers is often not a solution — auto painting jobs typically pay more.
  • The axpaint box system eliminates spray painting labor and requires no special skills

Technical Details

  • Solvent base paint (water base paint optional)
  • Constant fluid flow rate
  • Pulsation free system prevents spray pattern variation
  • Fluid output: up to 2.000 cm3 per minute
  • Unique pump changeover technology ensures consistent meteringand fluid flow rates
  • Mixing accuracy +/- 1% due to the innovative pump changeover technology
  • Continuous mixing auto-adjustment
  • Injectmix technology allows injecting a custom catalyst volume into a continuous flow of base for best mixing quality
  • Automatic component management: base and hardener
  • Low air pressure: max 6 bar
  • Volume of flushing solvent limited to real mixed material
