Dürr builds smart paint shop in Mexico

Dürr is building a paint shop in Mexico for the BMW Group that meets the requirements of connected Industry 4.0 production. The plant with the world's first integrated smart factory concept from Dürr is being built at the San Luis Potosi site. Dürr is supplying the entire paint shop, including pre-treatment and electrocoating, the spray booths with application technology, the ovens, the waste water treatment plant, the installations for the complete water deionisation system, and the paint shop ventilation. Smart solutions are systematically integrated into each of the processes. In the first stage, the paint shop is being designed for a capacity of 30 vehicles per hour, with the option to increase the throughput to twice this capacity later. Only the PT/EC area is designed for 60 vehicles per hour from the outset. The plant is scheduled to commence operation from August 2018.
