Are you EV Ready?

As more electric vehicle hit the road in the world, it is inevitable that some of them are going to hit each other and will end up in your bodyshop. And, of course, this may result in paint repairs that will need to be cured.

It is widely known that electric vehicles cannot undergo high temperatures during the repair and refinish process, as this could be damaging the high voltage batteries used to power these cars.

Symach systems for the processing of Electric Vehicles are safer, more energy efficient and directly curing vehicle coatings without the excessive heat that conventional bake ovens generally produce.

There is no requirement to change paint products nor increase curing times, that would add time to the repair process.

Drying with DryTronic IR technology is the gentle way to refinish cars that have sensitive electronics systems; it’s ideal for EVs and hybrids, minimizing the impact on the battery and EV components.

Symach is the leader in this category and has extensive global working knowledge in the repair, movement and effective processing of Electric Vehicles in a bodyshop.

Symach Technology is EV Ready

Symach Drytronic  IR technology is particularly recommended for drying paint on Electric Vehicles (EVs). 

Symach’s Drytronic infrared drying technology focuses the curing to the painted surface of the vehicle, instead of warming it completely, and will not raise interior or car’s platform temperatures, avoiding any excess heat to Electric batteries and vehicle’s electronics.

Drytronic IR curing technology is available in Symach’s KombiTron and KombiKing drying booths, in the handheld lamp DryTron and the drying robots EasyDry  and FlyDry. Symach curing robots can be retrofit in your existing spray booth and preparation bays, optimizing the drying process of any type of vehicles as well. The result will be a perfect finish for both water-based and solvent-based products, and will allow sanding and smoothing as soon as the treatment cycle ends.

UV products’ curing is also reccommended on EVs, and is available on Symach UV-LEDTronic handheld lamp and the FlyDry Hybrid. These technologies offer 80% lower environmental impact compared to traditional systems.
