The KM-Spray Enclosure was designed to confine powder particles in a closed environment during the Kinetic Metallization Deposition process. The first installments of the spray enclosure were 32" x 32" x 72". We have since developed the system to be compatible with larger robots and make overall dust cleaning and collection simpler. The current spray enclosure model uses a dust collection system that sucks dust out of the enclosure through the bellypan. Most of the dust is removed in this fashion and collected in a storage container provided with the dust collector. This minimizes overall powder cleanup. The current model also incorporates a safety interlock that prevents users from opening the door during operation. The interlock has an integrated emergency stop switch for safety purposes. When pressed, the safety switch will immediately shut down the Kinetic Metallization Process as well as any robotic motion. The upper half of the spray enclosure incorporates acryllic and lexan windows to optimize visibility during the deposition process. The top of the spray enclosure uses a PolyX filtered vent in order to allow proper air flow though the enclosure while preventing any dust particles from escaping. On the top of the enclosure there are two cleaning ports. These ports allow for access of an air wand to clean off any powder on the robot or bellypan.
The standard KM Spray Enclosure is compatible with the KM Production Coating System and the KM Coating Development System. There is an option for glove ports with the KM Production Coating System Spray Enclosure for manual manipulation using the KM-Handheld Gun. Additionally, there is a smaller optional spray enclosure for the KM Mobile Coating System.
