  • Dürr receives three SURCAR awards

Dürr receives three awards at the Surcar International Awards in Shanghai

Bietigheim-Bissingen / Shanghai, September 23, 2016 – During its first International Awards Ceremony in China SURCAR presented awards for 13 projects from both Automotive OEMs and suppliers. With three awards, Dürr achieves very great success at the ceremony in Shanghai. In the category Environmental Footprint the new atomizer cleaner EcoBell Cleaner D2 received two awards. Also rewarded was the BMW Brilliance Tiexi Paintshop in the category "Start up and Commissioning – Greenfield Project", which was built by Dürr.

The 13 projects rewarded at the SURCAR International Awards amongst the 4 categories (Environmental Footprint, Customer driven Quality Achievement, Lean, Plant and Process Design, Start Up and Commissioning) perfectly reflect these orientations for the future.

In the category Environmental Footprint the awards were given to distinguish Project teams who managed to respect new environmental regulations by reducing VOC Emissions, reduced Energy consumption and sustainable waste treatment in the PaintShop.

The EcoBell Cleaner D2 received the awards for the subcategory Technological Innovation as well as for Paint Consumption. The Cleaner offers a fully automated solution for cleaning atomizers. It reduces solvent use for each cleaning cycle to just 50 ml, from a previous 500 ml. This way, by reducing solvent waste, it prevents much VOCs from entering the booth air, thus reducing VOC emissions.

The EcoBell Cleaner D2’s greatest strength is that it can simultaneously perform both external cleaning and internal rinsing. Cleaning takes just 15 seconds to complete and occurs during the normally unproductive paint load-time—true time efficiency at work!

A third award Dürr received in the category "Start up and Commissioning – Greenfield Project" together with BMW and Schiller-Group for the BMW Brilliance Tiexi Paintshop. The paint shop, which was built by Dürr in Shenyang, China set the benchmark in recent years in environmental footprint and production efficiency. The Schiller-Group is specialist for warehouse technology and logistics.

Die SURCAR International Awards is the biennial ceremony which will reward the most innovative solutions for Car Body Painting and allied Paint finishing industries and enhance the public exposure of companies, OEMs and suppliers, involved in the continuous development of the paint finishing industries.

The projects can be based in any manufacturing plant worldwide, but linked or showing advantages for and applicable to the Asian Market are very much appreciated.

Jin Xuefeng, sales manager of Dürr in China, received the awards and said: "With our vision of leading in production efficiency, Dürr has always been dedicated in technology innovation and in environment protection. This meets the purpose of Surcar award ceremony. We are looking forward to developing paint technology for future markets".

SURCAR is the largest worldwide community in paint and car body finishing.
