Burkle Shines the Spotlight on New Compact Lacquering Line at Holz-Handwerk 2014

Following in the footsteps of Tina Turner, Burkle will be appearing with a top hit at this year's Holz-Handwerk show in Nuremberg. The company will be exhibiting its completely redesigned KA 1300 Compact Lacquering Line which goes one step further in reducing material consumption. From the customer perspective, a significant reduction in lacquer and solvent consumption combined with consistently outstanding lacquering and drying quality is a particularly impressive feature of the new KA 1300.

At the Holz-Handwerk show on March 26th - 29th in Nuremberg, one of the new and improved items on display at the Burkle stand (Hall 10, Stand 102) will be the completely redesigned KA 1300 Compact Lacquering Line. In terms of technology, the application system has been totally optimised. The machine's low lacquer and solvent consumption is a feature which makes an immediate impression.

Fast, economical - and top quality as well

Lower consumption reduces air emissions and saves money as well. A reduction in annual lacquer costs of between 15,000 and 30,000 euros is quite realistic. This obviously shortens the return on investment period.

The KA 1300, available as a combination of roller machine or multi-purpose roller machine and UV dryer, raises the quality bar even higher than on previous models. The castings on the machine frame cushion vibration, ensuring an impeccable, reproducible lacquer finish. Other outstanding features of the machine include user-friendly operation, separate frequency-controlled direct drives, removable transport system, motor-assisted height adjustment and explosion protected motors and switching elements.

Perfectly geared to many different applications

These technical features interact to give customers a level of flexibility that was virtually unheard of in the past. The machine produces excellent coating results, and the sophisticated material re-circulation system reduces the consumption of coating materials. An optional smoothing roller can be used to apply high-viscosity fillers. This option is particularly useful for panels which have veneer joints or wood which has large pores.

Flat furniture parts, doors and interior fittings can be given a base coat or solvent-free top coat followed by UV drying in a continuous process. The maximum thickness of any item is 80 mm and the working width is 1,300 mm. The machine can also be used to apply solvent-based or aqueous stains or oils or wax. The KA 1300 has a small footprint of only 3,400 mm x 3,350 mm, so there is room for it almost anywhere. The simple, efficient, reliable KA 1300 offers very good value for money, and not just in the craft trades.
