It is a modern and innovative solution to ensure high productivity and fast delivery of one – or two – panel repairs and the key-to-key time is guaranteed in half a day.
FixStation is a hybrid solution that works as a spray booth and a workstation, all in one spot. This solution allows one multi-skilled technician to perform an average of three to four repairs per day without moving the vehicle, which results in one repair every two to three hours.
FixStation is a fully equipped workstation where a technician removes and installs parts, pulls dents, applies body filler, sprays primer, and sprays and dries waterborne/solvent basecoat and clear coat.
To install a proper bodyshop in a box, FixStation has to be equipped with a FlyDry robot, a paint mixing room, a Vacuum Sanding system and a MultiBox with plugs and retractable air and electric. Vehicle lifts are commonly installed however are optional.
The PowerLight system, developed by Symach, guarantees impressive light on the vehicle and a perfect point of color for detailed paint application. The FixStation has built-in technology and automation that recognizes the painting phase and changes the program automatically, using maximum speed of ventilation for spraying phases; average air speed for drying with the robot; and minimum air speed for climatization during other working phases. The painter never pushes any buttons.
FixStation is available in multiple configurations based on length and height variables. One option includes pneumatic doors and CarMover rails that allow two technicians to work together. Another option includes inlet fans that warm the air. The ventilation is at 24.000 cubic meters per hour or 14,125 CFM, for ideal air speed and performance inside the booth and fantastic abatement of overspray.
The floor is designed with four different chambers. This design is unique to Symach and guarantees consistent and balanced airflow when the floor filters are in need of replacement due to excess overspray build-up.
The front and side doors are pneumatic, up and down, and the external cover is CoverTop, ABS plastic panels that are available in eight different colors.
