Dry powder paint capability

15 March 2017

McAree Engineering has invested €600,000 in a state of the art dry powder paint facility to complement the wet spray capability at its Ballinode, Co. Monaghan site.

Designed for large fabrications, the 14m long x 7m wide x 6m high blast booth ensures efficient surface preparation using chilled iron. Complete with a Gema spraybooth (7.2m long x 4m wide x 3.3m high) and a similar sized box oven, it allows McAree Engineering to paint and fully finish a range of assemblies.

Vincent McAree, operations director explains: "We always have had a very strong design capability with our in-house design team working on a range of different projects. With this modern paint facility we are in a position to paint and fully finish both small and large fabrications.”

The company has recently designed and fabricated a fully finished cab unit for one of its clients which allowed it to demonstrate the full capability of its new facility. Designed using 3D modelling software, McAree worked with the client to identify the key design characteristics required. Fitted with panoramic windows, air conditioning, seat and monitors, the end result exactly matches the customer's requirements.
