Geico S.p.A. Pardis Innovation Centre

Geico S.p.A. Pardis Innovation Centre (the “Pardis Innovation Centre”) is the global-scale research & development facility of the alliance of Taikisha and Geico S.P.A. (“Geico”) and committed to developing technologies for automobile paint finishing plants. It develops painting technologies designed to reduce environmental burdens. At the Centre, tests are performed on new technologies developed by the engineering team of Geico for automobile paint finishing plants; on the other hand, Geico sets June 16, 2020 as its Energy Independence Day and is promoting development activities in pursuit of realizing an automobile paint finishing plant that will no longer produce CO2 emissions and be capable of producing, supplying, using sufficient energy itself by that year. The Pardis Innovation Centre also assumes the important role of directly demonstrating to customers cutting-edge technologies for the processes of pre-treatment, electrodeposition, sealing, painting with liquid and powder paints, drying, and conveying, which are the most important processes of automobile paint finishing.

Technologies with Achievements

J-Jump

J-Jump is a conveyor system with a combined movement. While the first auto body is immersed in the first tank, separate treatment of the second auto body can begin in the second tank beyond the first auto body. J-Jump can also be processed in two different cycle times on the same line. When capacity enhancement is planned as the second phase in new plant planning, J-Jump can reduce both of the amount of investment in the second phase and the time required to modify the line.
● J-Jump 4C : J-Jump 4C is the quadruple-column version of the J-Jump system and suitable for treatment of heavy auto bodies.
● J-Jump 2C / 1C : J-Jump 2C and 1C are the double-column and single-column versions of the J-Jump system and provided with additional functions, such as auto body rotation, which the quadruple-column version does not have.

J-Max

J-Max is another single-column version of the J-Jump system and different from J-Jump 1C in that it can exert the features of the J-Jump Series even in cases where the number of electrodeposition tanks needs to be one.

Lean Dip

Lean Dip is the rotary type conveyor system that can contribute to the improvement of paint finishing quality and the reduction of the process length and the running cost in the pre-treatment and electrodeposition processes. Adopting a unique operation mechanism, this system is characterized by a considerably simplified structure and control system, which help achieve extremely easy daily line control and equipment maintenance. In addition, this Lean Dip Series offers “Lean Dip HP“, which is available for production lines with relatively large production volumes, and can meet a wide spectrum of customer needs and requests.

J-Hive

J-Hive is a modularized painting unit and embodies the distinguished feature of being able to be flexibly placed in any direction. Making the most of this feature can help achieve line designs that will realize great energy and space saving. J-Hive also received the Innovation Award at the international conference “Surcar” held in 2015 for its concept.

Dry Car

Dry Car is the paint finishing booth that uses a special paper filter to collect overspray paints produced in painting booths. The filter basically consists of three layers with a special filter used for the first layer, and ensures stable dust removal performance. An automatic or semi-automatic replacement system designed to further facilitate filter replacement is also available as an option in response to a wide spectrum of customer needs and requests.
