A painting complex for railway trains designed and manufactured by our company for the State Enterprise “Ukrspetsvagon”, in the village of Panyutino, Kharkiv region. This complex consists of two painting and drying chambers built into an existing building for railway trains and two sets of lifting and moving platforms for operators; it was created during 2011 – 2012.

The organization of the manufacture of the paint complex for railway trains and the corresponding placement of equipment is determined by the main characteristics of the production flow.
The placement of equipment for the painting and drying chamber for trains was carried out in the following way.

The movement and concentration of resources to the place of work. To organize production by this method, it is necessary to establish the sequence of work, which is determined by the production stages. The placement of equipment and components around a stationary object should be determined by the principle of grouping materials according to their technological priority.

The main problem is to avoid cluttering the resources of the production subsystem and ensure uninterrupted operation.
The design of the painting and the drying chamber was carried out based on the location of existing buildings and premises at the facility.

Since the customer provided information that the painting and drying chamber (PDCH) will be installed in the walls already built for the camera, this gave some restrictions on the location of the equipment.

After analyzing the state of the facility for PDCH, the following conclusions were made:

● PDCH is located in a room that borders on three sides with existing buildings (except for the front);
● the front part must remain free, since a rail track is laid along with it, along which the transporter of the train moves;
● The only option for locating PDCH equipment is the back of the chamber.

1. For the implementation of exhaust ventilation, it is necessary to fill the foundation, with the corresponding pits for air ducts.
This work was carried out jointly with the customer. Accordingly, we have provided drawings for this task.

2. In order to supply heated air to the OSK, it was decided to place the heat generators along the back wall of the room. To provide access to the service doors, as well as provide, in the event of an emergency or fire, a corridor for unhindered evacuation, the heat generators were raised above the floor by 2.4 m. To maintain the burner and control the operation of heat generators, a “service platform” is provided on the stand. Manufacture of supports for heat generators customer took over. For this, a project was prepared and provided in the drawings for the manufacture of frames for heat generators.
3. Extraction and filtration of exhaust air is carried out using an extractor, which is connected to the air ducts in the foundation by ventilation ducts. The extractor is installed outside the chamber, it can either be the roof of the chamber itself, or on the roof of other nearby structures.

The elevator for the painter is located along the side walls of the paint booth, the operator with their help quickly moves along the product during painting. The elevator moves in three dimensions – along the wall, up and down, and from wall to product. Thanks to the painter’s lift, the painting speed of the product increases by 50-60%.
