SPDI's Patented UV Visualizer Training Kit
The UV Fastlane Mobility System is everything you need to take your automotive collision business to the next level and to reduce your cycle time. Still, a tool without adequate training becomes misused and then discarded. This is why we have developed and patented the UV Visualizer Training Kit.
The UV Visualizer Training Kit comes with everything you need to become an expert in UV Curing. The kit gives you the step by step instructions to take you from novice to professional in 30 minutes or less. This simple but very effective kit allows you to practice your curing technique over patented UV reactive color strips. As you pass over the strips with the handheld curing device, you can visually see the color change in realtime. This gives you the immediate feedback so you know if you're going too fast or too slow or keeping the device to far or too near to the vehicle. The beauty is that by learning on UV reactive paper, you don't need to learn on an actual automobile.
Although many of our clients simply jump right in and have no problems with the curing process, this kit makes it even easier. We include a kit with every mobility cart but we offer these additional kits so that you may train any new hires through the process.
Standard Maintenance Information on the UV Fastlane 2K Cart
Regular cleaning and maintenance should be scheduled to achieve maximum performance and full lamp-life from your 2K UV Fastlane System.
Lamps and reflectors must be clean at the time of installation and maintained so the UV energy generated can reach the primer / paint.
A dirty reflector will reduce cure rates and increase temperature. The reflector returns approximately 50-60% of lamp energy. The dirt and dust on the reflector may cause overheating which will in effect cause warping and a drastic reduction of curing performance.
Regular Maintenance Checklist:
Electrical: At the beginning and end of each shift check all electrical hookups for proper connection, any broken, damaged, frayed wires or plugs should be reported and repaired or changed before operation.
Filter Changeout: The system is air-cooled, check the fans on both the Irradiator (handheld unit) and Standby Nest are operating and not damaged, check the filters are clean and free of debris. These can be removed with compressed air, or changed if required. It is recommended that all filters are changed out every 50hrs of use, or sooner if necessary. We provide enough filters to make sure that this aspect of maintenance is never neglected.
Fan Check: During filter maintenance, it is recommended that you visually inspect the fans on the system to ensure that no blades are missing, broken, or bent.
Lamp Cleaning: The lamp and reflector must be cleaned if dirt, dust or debris are present. This is done by unplugging the Irradiator and removing the cartridge form the housing, (full instructions are in manual provided). Lint free gloves should be worn whenever handling, changing or cleaning a UV Lamp. Please use the provided wipes or if you cannot find one, only use wipes with 99.9% isopropyl alcohol. DO NOT use steel wool, emery paper, or abrasive powders for cleaning lamps or reflectors.
Online Training: We have had a number of shops request that we put together online training courses for their employees. We have created the courses at the link below for this purpose. The courses range from broad topics like UV Safety to repair and maintenance specific techniques and they can be taken a la carte. Every course is a brief as possible because we know that time is money. Have a course that you think we should add to the program? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
