Cefla Finishing presents the innovative iGiottoApp Twin at Xylexpo
From 24 to 28 May at the Milan Rho Trade Fair, Cefla will debut the forefront for spray painting of panels and 3D objects, consisting of two high performance anthropomorphic robots that work in pairs.

IMOLA. Debut at Xylexpo 2016, from 24 to 28 May at the Milan Rho Trade Fair, of the first machine for paint application that uses two high performance anthropomorphic robots. It is called iGiottoApp Twin and is truly avant-garde technology for spray painting of panels and 3D objects. It was announced at the presentation of Xylexpo 2016 last February, and now behold the unveiled important news that Cefla Finishing will present it in its large exhibition space in Pavilion 3 (Stand A01, C02, A19, C20), on the occasion of the 25th edition of this important biennial fair dedicated to technologies in wood processing and components for the furniture industry.

“Once again – says Alberto Maestri, managing director of Cefla Finishing – we can proudly say that our designers have anticipated the times and have marked a new step in the technological innovation of spray painting”. This innovative system makes painting products with large shapes and dimensions easy, with up to over 20 cm of thickness and widths up to 1.3 metres. One of the strengths of iGiottoApp Twin is its flexibility, which allows the user to work with both robots simultaneously on the same items, sharing the work area while avoiding collision thanks to a precise automatic calculation of their trajectories. The two robots can work synchronously on identical items, independently on different products or continuously on objects of any type, by integrating the work of one and the other without ever stopping the production flow. Moreover, iGiottoApp Twin exploits a precise 3D reading system with a high-performance scanner, able to identify the shapes and position of the products to be painted. Thanks to the software system completely developed by Cefla, it is also able to calculate the possible trajectories of application for pieces immediately after they are scanned.

“All these advantages – continues Mr. Maestri -, combined with an excellent air and overspray filtration system, a CFB continuous belt conveyor system and the relative overspray cleaning and recovery system, make iGiottoApp Twin a paint application machine that is among the most efficient and performing”. In addition to iGiottoApp Twin, Cefla Finishing will offer Xylexpo visitors the opportunity to personally verify the potential of certain solutions, for example the known and consolidated “Fusion & Inert Coating Technology”. In particular, there will be two processing cycles where a traditional primer dried with a UV-R LED oven alternates with a UV glue primer that is applied with the “Fusion Coating” system, developed in partnership with Henkel, creator of the “Technomelt Chs Uv” technology.

“We at Cefla believe that commitment to research and tireless work in developing processes and products are the foundations of our historical role as a leading company that increasingly confirms itself as a sole partner able to offer complete, personalised and concretely effective solutions to guarantee the highest quality and maximum efficiency to our customers,” concludes Alberto Maestri.

At Xylexpo Cefla will also showcase EasyWrap by Düspohl, a compact machine for coating wood profiles with coils of decorative material; theiGiotto robot for fixtures; the oscillating spraying machines Mito and Pixart: a plotter for high definition and large format digital printing.
