Bodyshops can use latest technology to their advantage.
22 November 2021 – Standox now offers bodyshops its state-of-the-art Standoblue Basecoat mixing tints in pre-filled bottles specifically for use in Fillon Technologies’ new Daisy Wheel 3.0. The bottles, which are available immediately, come in 68 tints in 500ml bottles and 27 tints in 1 litre bottles.
Harald Klöckner, Axalta International Training Leader and Refinish Product Specialist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, says, “Right first-time repairs are something we’re passionate about and by offering our highly-professional refinishers these pre-filled bottles of Standoblue Basecoat for use in the Daisy Wheel 3.0, it’s another step in helping to build bodyshops of the future. The pre-filled bottles deliver for the first time a fully automated end-to-end colour mixing process.”
To reap the complete technological and efficiency advantages of fully automated colour mixing, which include time-, product- and cost-saving benefits, refinishers must use the pre-filled bottles and Daisy Wheel 3.0 in conjunction with Standowin iQ Cloud – the Standox digital colour management system. The Genius iQ spectrophotometer takes precise measurements, then Standowin iQ finds the colour formulas from a database of over 200,000 formulas. Finally, at the touch of a button, refinishers send the formula to the connected Daisy Wheel 3.0, which then takes care of the colour mixing, allowing refinishers to concentrate on more profitable tasks.
“The benefits of fully automated colour mixing are clear. It can take even the most professional refinisher about 10 minutes to manually mix a colour for repair. And if they are carrying out ten repairs a day, that’s almost two hours of time that a skilled refinisher gets back to work on other repair jobs,” adds Klöckner.
