The new manual Airspray gun GM 1030P from WAGNER is not only highly precise in its application, but also extremely versatile. It is equipped with a nozzle that, with a maximum material passage of 9 mm, enables flexible processing of low- to high-viscosity materials with high solids content. Depending on the application, a large number of air caps and nozzle sizes can be used. All components that come into direct contact with the coating material are made of durable stainless steel. Solvent-resistant gaskets make it easy to use the gun with water- and solvent-based materials. The GM 1030P can be used for a variety of applications in many industries. It is suitable for the application of primers, fillers, clear lacquers or stains. Metal parts can be coated as well as furniture or plastic decorative elements.
The new development from WAGNER is also characterized by numerous details that are new to the market and that reduce the material costs of the medium to be sprayed and also ensure a particularly uniform spray pattern. These features include setting the desired spray jet width with just one rotary knob. Once set, the air volume is automatically adjusted when the spray pattern changes from round to flat jet without having to readjust the atomizing air. "Spraying with too high atomizer air pressure is prevented, which reduces overspray by up to 15 percent and significantly lowers material costs", explained Peter Neu, Senior Product Manager Industrial Solutions at WAGNER. The GM 1030P is equipped with a fixable needle stroke adjustment for process-safe coating with a constant material flow rate. This additionally optimizes the material usage and has a positive effect on the application efficiency.
The large material and air passages of the components also support perfect atomization and at the same time permit a high application speed.
Unlike comparable models, the new Airspray gun is equipped with a two-part nozzle consisting of nozzle head and nozzle nut. If necessary, it is sufficient to replace the nozzle head, which is considerably cheaper than replacing the complete nozzle and significantly reduces the cost of wearing parts. The reduced maintenance costs and minimal downtime of the gun are also due to long-life needles and the revised concept of the nozzle packing. This concept features an improved, highly resistant polyethylene seal. "Tests have shown that the nozzle packing of comparable guns leaks at a time when the new GM 1030P's is still sealing perfectly for a long time," reports Neu. "The maintenance intervals of our Airspray gun are 40 percent longer, which means further cost savings."
WAGNER has designed the Airspray gun in a particularly practical way: With the GM 1030P, the nozzle and needle size currently in use can be easily read from the outside. The gun does not have to be dismantled to identify a required spare part. This feature, as well as the use of durable, high-quality components, minimizes downtimes. The gun’s low weight and ergonomic design support fatigue-free work even over long periods of time. The anodized surface of the gun is also particularly easy to clean. In addition, the GM 1030P is available on request as a ready-to-spray spray pack together with hopper, suction hose and pump (TOPFINISH DD10 double diaphragm pump or Zip 52 low-pressure diaphragm pump).
