IRT World Leading Infrared Drying
We've had the IRT infrared drying equipment installed at all our fast repair centers and have been delighted by its performance. It enables very fast curing of fillers, primers and clear coats, which has significantly helped to improve our productivity and reduce our running costs. It is quick and easy to set up and use the equipment, which has thermal and distance sensors to ensure you get safe consistent results each time. It really is a robust and durable piece of equipment and the follow up training was very thorough.

After a lengthy business plan review we decided to design and purchase a modern state of the art repair facility. We therefore started a long and critical process of finding the right equipment and companies to work in partnership with to make our vison a reality. To this end we offered a number of leading companies the opportunity to present their solutions to us, including Bodyshop Solutions. Their technical knowledge, passion and understanding of our needs immediately convinced us to take a greater look at what they had to offer and we decided that the IRT infrared curing technology on a rail system exactly mirrored our goal of a one touch process, incorporating fast drying times with equipment that was user friendly and also gave us very good heat control.
Our paint technicians are now able to continue the paint process from start finish without movement of vehicles, minimising drying times at both primer and top coat stages. In addition, with the short-wave infrared curing from inside to out, this enables us to both refit and polish the vehicle immediately after curing, and has allowed our key to key times and hours worked per day to show a measurable reduction. Part of Bodyshop Solutions’ remit was that all equipment must be user friendly with low maintenance and low energy costs - the IRT system without doubt deliveries all of this and more.
IRT infrared curing technology is proving to be key to our continued growth, increasing our capacity due to the significant reductions in process times, plus also generating good savings on energy costs. Our IRT investment is certainly, without doubt, the right one.
