08 mars 2019 08:31

AiKeEr (Ecco Finishing China) has been very successful in introducing the new Ecco 52AS into the most demanding and fastest growing 3C markets in the world. More than 200 units of the newly developed automatic low-pressure spray gun ECCO 52AS has been installed in China during 2018.

Primary usage can be seen in the following four applications:

  • Mobile phone industry: As replacement for similar equipment from IWATA, DeVilbiss and Graco, Ecco 52AS has proven its advantages in superior surface finish and paint saving. Chinese mobile brands Oppo, Vivo and Huawei all use Ecco 52AS. 
  • Water-borne paint: Since Ecco 52AS is made of stainless steel, it’s suitable for all water-borne paint. With the Chinese government’s initiative to limit solvent-borne paint, main manufacturers like Apple, Bose and Google are now on board with the new technology.
  • New project development: 2.5D and 3D gradient ramp painting of composite mobile phone covers. Requirements include wide spray pattern, extremely even film and minimum overspray on large boards as seen on Oppo R17 and Huawei P20.
  • Automotive interior trim and upholstery painting: Predominantly for Chinese Tier 2 and 3 suppliers. Currently, they use low cost products from IWATA and DeVilbiss.
