Coquitlam, British Columbia — April 17, 2017 — Space is often at a premium in a collision centre, but the challenge is often bigger for those in major urban regions, like the Greater Vancouver Area. Kirmac Collision & Autoglass has recently completed the installation of new equipment at its Coquitlam–Schoolhouse location in an effort to achieve more in a smaller space.
Sean McIntosh is the Director of Operations for Kirmac Collision & Autoglass. He’s confident that the new Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) equipment recently installed at the shop will enable his team to “produce the same volume in half the space.”
The Coquitlam–Schoolhouse location is a relatively new addition to the Kirmac chain. The facility is outfitted with three REVO infrared curing systems and a double Ultra XR booth, separated by a mix room. The double booth is designed so technicians can paint on one side while the semi-automatic REVO Speed cures on the other.
“The ceiling-mounted REVO Speed is perfect for high-throughput operations,” says Collin Armstrong of GFS. “Technicians can simply set the specifications and leave the REVO to do the work of curing fillers and coatings.”
Coquitlam–Schoolhouse is the sixth Kirmac location to select GFS’ REVO infrared curing systems. In addition to the REVO Speed, two rail-mounted REVO Rapids are situated in the prep line to cure panels without monopolizing the booth. According to GFS, the REVO Rapid’s compact, flexible design can be easily positioned to provide the best cure without taking up valuable shop space.
