The plant is designed for engineering, fabrication, and assembly of paint system. Systems can be debugged and run off for the customer in our new plant. Let us know if you are in the Monterrey area and we can arrange for a tour.

PARTS CLEANING WITH ROBOTS 
Parts washers can be large, messy and expensive to run. Utility costs to run the washer and dry-off oven are justification on their own to look for alternatives.

Thierica Equipment can help! We have installed several systems utilizing Fanuc robots with a variety of cleaning tools. Robots have been used with destat blow-offs, vacuums, and plasma cleaning heads. Thierica has also successfully installed Cool Clean CO2 spray systems using Fanuc robots for pretreatment and cleaning of plastic automotive interior parts. We have installed a Cool Clean system in our lab in Grand Rapids, MI.

Please contact us and we will set up a demonstration in our lab using a variety of treatments to prepare your parts for painting.

One for the Grey Hairs (in their sixties)

Just after school started this fall, I took a six day bike trip. As you can see in the picture below it was a peddle bike - a 95 Schwinn. A couple of years ago I started at the head waters of the Mississippi River and rode for 6 days. I picked up where I left off and rode for another 6 days. This trip started a day's journey above the twin cities in Minnesota and ended up above the Iowa border. I took my sleeping gear and slept out each night. I did not take any matches for fire, but I got one hot meal a day and carried a few treats to hold me over. I went by myself so I could peddle at my own rate, stop and take pictures where I wanted to, and enjoy nature when and where I could. I rode on bike paths and side roads that followed the Mississippi River Trail. Part of the trip that was a little overwhelming was a section of the road that continued to climb up and wind around forever or at least it seemed that way. I ended up stopping about 25 times to rest or push my bike until I made it to the last climb. Of course cars and trucks were whizzing by, but there was an 8' shoulder that was paved. To say the least, going down I did not peddle very much! Then unknown to me, the camp site that night had another long winding road that went up, up, and around once again! I did not take an air mattress with me, but I slept very well that night. I met a number of people along the way: one guy was walking around the world (Andrew’s Adventures), another was riding a unicycle and it looked like he had more gear then I had, I had breakfast with two guys and a dog that were canoeing down the Mississippi, then I had missed one of my campsites and as it was getting darker I asked a grey hair gentleman if I could put my tent up in his yard. He was cutting his grass and he said okay. Later his wife invited me in for warm tea and hot apple crisp with ice cream.  I had checked my bike out mechanically before I made the trip and there were no issues on this trip. I ended up taking more gear than I needed as the trip before, but maybe next time I will lighten the load. By the fifth night I was kind of glad that my wife would meet me later the next day to end of my journey for 2014. I would encourage you to take short or long bike trip this next year.
