Aston Martin AirKnife Installation
This was part of a new line to tailor for customer bespoke colours and finishes on these beautiful cars.
A direct drive centrifugal blower was chosen for this application as there were stringent noise levels constraints on this project. The Airtec blower was used to drive the airknives mounted on a bespoke ‘goal post’ style arrangement.
The exit air stream from the knife was charged via air knife anti-static bars provided by Fraser Anti-Static.
This successfully eliminated the static charge. Air-bourne particles at this stage where extracted via a bespoke filter panel arrangement again, in a ‘goal post’ arrangement.
The system was very successful and was the first closed loop system employed for this type of application.
