New system designs with TransApp® technology

Variables TransApp Beschichtungsmodul

The TransApp® technology opens new possibilities for new application units according to modular design principles. Additionally to the TransApp® powder application, based on the electrostatic fluidized bed technique, infrared heating and plasma pretreatment can be integrated in the system, while taking up a minimum of space. The coating unit is incorporated into the production line and automatically connected with the assembly line, warehouse and conveyor. The coating unit can be adapted to individual production circumstances. The fluidized bed is custom-made to each particular use case and can efficiently be exchanged.


A demonstrator for above described system design is now installed at Längle for conducting test series. The variable TransApp® coating module was planned and built by the Fraunhofer IPA together with the Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and Management (IFF) of the University of Stuttgart and was integrated in their learning factory.


A robot is responsible for the transportation of goods from the work piece support to the plasma pretreatment, which is mounted below the ceiling of the module. The robot forwards the pretreated work piece to the powder application. The application is done in a tiny electrostatic fluidized bed. Subsequently the powder is burnt in by infrared heating technology affixed at the module.
