Tiger Group is now accepting bulk delivers for 4 robot-automatic pieces-washing, powder-coating and vacuum metallizing lines formerly owned by Winona PVD Coatings—a Tier-A person finisher that chrome-coated wheels for major automakers from close to the globe. The business was put in receivership in 2020.
Positioned at Winona’s two buildings in Warsaw, Indiana, the four superior-capability strains incorporate a total of 32 Fanuc 2000-iB 165F Robots Nordson powder booths, comprehensive with guns and nozzles multi-stage parts washers, and curing booths.
“It’s rare to see higher-volume, wholly automated PVD [particle vapor deposition] products of this kind of substantial quality arrive on the secondary market,” said George Laidlaw, a director of Small business Development for Tiger’s Professional & Industrial division. “The pretreatment lines below are ‘like new’—better than in ‘excellent’ condition—and one of these lines was really in no way used. This is some of the finest gear of its type that I have witnessed in latest a long time.”
The coating products is suitable for standard pretreatment and/or regular colour-coating processes, noted Laidlaw. “While these traces are established up for wheel-coating on behalf of makers like Ford or just after-sector suppliers, they are conveniently adaptable, which makes them of interest to any organization that requirements to coat or wash elements,” he reported.
Winona’s two buildings—about 300,000 sq. ft combined—are available for lease to a new operator. “A turnkey purchaser seeking to keep these property in spot could be up and working in short purchase,” Laidlaw mentioned. “That could include things like a expert business targeted on coating distinct varieties of elements on behalf of several manufacturers.”
