Solution will save time and reduce waste in the mixing room

22 November 2021 – Cromax® has introduced pre-filled bottles of its Cromax Pro Basecoat designed to work with Fillon Technologies’ new Daisy Wheel 3.0. With 68 available tints in 0.5 litre bottles and 28 tints in 1 litre bottles, the complete colour matching and mixing process can now be carried out in the most productive process available on the market. When using Daisy Wheel 3.0 with the new pre-filled bottles, in conjunction with ChromaConnect, the advanced digital colour management system from Cromax, bodyshops will enjoy for the first time fully automated end-to-end colour mixing.

Tony Mitchell, International Training Leader for Axalta’s Refinish business in Europe, Middle East and Africa, says, “After quickly and accurately measuring the vehicle’s colour and effect with the ChromaVision Pro Mini spectrophotometer, refinishers simply connect to ChromaWeb, the comprehensive cloud-based colour retrieval system from Cromax.  The database has over 200,000 constantly updated formulas. The refinisher sends the selected formula to Daisy Wheel 3.0 and is free to get on with other things while the colour mixes – saving up to two hours a day when working on an average of 10 repairs per day. This fully-automated process optimises the entire workflow of the bodyshop, helping to increase throughput and maximising productivity.”

Bodyshops will also benefit from cost savings thanks to the reduction in material waste, as there is no chance of error at the weighing stage. In fact, the computer-controlled dosing with the Daisy Wheel is precise to 0.05 gram, so bodyshops are guaranteed 100% reproducible colours that can be dosed in amounts as small as 50ml to a maximum of two litres.

“Extreme colour accuracy, precise dosing for all repairs and process optimisation are three principles for high level bodyshop productivity and unparalled profitability,” adds Mitchell.

Cromax Pro Basecoat pre-filled bottles are commercially available immediately.
