RUAG's twin booth paint shop ups efficiency
Jobs for RUAG can now move seamlessly from the painting to the drying process, as its Oberpfaffenhofen facility now has a paint spraying booth and a drying booth right opposite.
Light and airy, the paint shop is a pleasant environment to work in.

RUAG MRO International's aircraft painting facility in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich has recently been equipped with a new combined painting and drying shop. After a two-week test phase in June, the team has now commenced operations.

The shop consists of a paint spraying booth and an adjacent drying booth, and offers sufficient space for painting larger aircraft components such as elevators and rudders, flaps or cabin components.

“The new facility allows us to carry out even the most demanding of paint jobs to the highest quality,” says Stefan Schulz, team leader of the paint shop. “In addition to the high technical standard, the closed arrangement of the two booths is particularly advantageous since it enables a direct transition from the painting to the drying process. This eliminates the risk of contamination and helps save time. While one component is drying in the second booth, we can get on with painting the next component in the first booth.”
