Dürr's revolutionary concept EcoInCure wins Pace Award 2024

EcoInCure improves paint quality and overall curing performance

Bietigheim-Bissingen, May 02, 2024 – For the second time in a row a Dürr innovation has convinced an independent review board to win the Automotive News PACE Award. The EcoInCure cures complex car bodies with superior paint quality faster and more efficiently than conventional ovens. Designed to exceed the evolving needs of drying both traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and electric vehicles (EVs), EcoInCure addresses critical customer requirements such as topcoat paint quality and improved overall curing performance.

"We are very excited that our technology has been recognized as a cutting-edge innovation that shapes the automotive industry," said Mark Murray, Director of Sales and Marketing Dürr in North America. “Dürr’s EcoInCure stands for a new generation of car body curing. It not only ensures the best surface quality but is also by far the most sustainable oven system on the market thanks to the oven design and potential use of renewable electricity.”

EcoInCure is an enabler for the Dürr paint shop of the future, which changes the production approach from line-oriented production to flexible and modular production with scalability. It is an optimized solution for curing all vehicles, especially electric vehicles, within the required process time and meets specific treatment times for paint curing, adhesive curing, steel and aluminum treatment. Avoiding high air velocity on the freshly painted surface provides significant reduction in paint waviness in both, long and short waves. This advancement improves paint surface quality by 50%. Due to the cross transport of the car bodies, the oven length can be reduced by almost half. The number of connecting conveyors is reduced, resulting in a smaller overall footprint and a reduction in building footprint (at least 5%).

With the electrically heated EcoInCure oven, energy savings of 50% can be achieved compared to a conventional gas-fired oven. With a zero-carbon footprint using renewable electricity, EcoInCure is by far the most sustainable oven system on the market. The Dürr technology is already being used in various plants around the world, for example at Skoda or BMW.

The 29th annual PACE Awards were presented by Automotive News. The competition was open to suppliers that contribute products, processes, materials, or services directly to the manufacture of cars or trucks. The Automotive News PACE Award is accepted around the world as the industry benchmark for innovation.

  • Car bodies are transported transversely through the line in stop and go operation.

  • Space-saving layout: EcoInCure halves the length of the dryer compared to conventional dryers.
