PPG has completed the 1,000th installation of its award-winning PPG MOONWALK automated refinish paint mixing system. The installation at Group Perez Rumbao’s facility in Vigo in Spain, was celebrated at a special event attended by representatives of both companies. The innovative PPG MoonWalk system saves labor, reduces waste and transforms the refinish mixing room into a clean and safe environment, setting a new standard for the refinish market. Paint technicians and body shop managers benefit from the extreme accuracy of the automated mixing process, which improves speed, quality and color consistency.The PPG MoonWalk system is sized to fit all mixing rooms and features 80 storage spaces for tinters and 13 positions in the dispensing rack. Other components include a barcode scanner, a label printer and a moving scale that is 10 times more precise than a standard scale. The user loads the required tinter, additive and thinner bottles into the dispensing rack. The system then checks each bottle’s barcode, automatically dispensing the correct amount of product and printing a label.
