PPG announced the launch of its MoonWalk automated paint mixing system for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) automotive refinish industry. The self-contained system brings a new level of speed, precision, quality and colour consistency to the body shop mixing process.
The MoonWalk system is sized to fit all mixing rooms and features 80 storage spaces for tinters and 13 positions in the dispensing rack. Other components include a moving scale that is 10 times more precise than a standard scale, a barcode scanner and a label printer.
The colour management software displays the correct colour formula, with the user loading the required tinter, additive and thinner bottles into the dispensing rack in any sequence. The PPG MoonWalk system checks each bottle’s barcode, automatically dispenses the correct amount of product, communicates the results and prints a label.
