At Gouweleeuw we specialise in painting heavy equipment. We paint, among other objects, mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of less than 300 tons, mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of more than 300 tons, crawler cranes, trucks, earthmoving machines, garbage trucks and other heavy equipment. Every day we paint for manufacturers such as Liebherr, Tadano, Sany, Terex, Manitowoc, Spierings, Kobelco, and GeesinkNorba. We also paint machines for importers, dealers and end users in our paint shop.
Full-service paint shop
Our paint shop is fully equipped and is adapted to painting large and heavy equipment. We have several large paint booths and also a 35 meter long mast hall where crane mast parts are extended part by part so that they can be completely painted.
We offer a complete service in our paint shop, consisting of:
During this first step in the process, all demountable parts of the machine are disassembled. Extra checks are also carried out for rust and oxidation. The sheet metal of the machine is pre-processed and painted separately. This ensures the best painting result.
After disassembly of the removable parts, the machine is cleaned in our washing area. The washing area in our paint shop is especially equipped with a landing so that the machine can be optimally cleaned from all sides. Thanks to the maintenance pit, the machine can also be cleaned at the bottom.
During this process the machine is sanded. The old paint layer is removed by sanding. The parts that may not be painted are carefully masked. During the preparation, any rust and oxidation is removed from the machine.
After preparation, the machine is ready for the next step in the paint shop. The machine is set up in one of our many large paint booths and is first coated in a primer layer. The machine is then sprayed in the desired coat of paint. If desired, the machine can also be covered with a clear coat for longer retention of the colour and an extra glossy painting result.
As soon as the spraying work has been completed in the paint shop, the machine goes to the assembly department. There the machine is fully assembled, including the painted sheet metal.
Lettering and finishing touch
Optionally, we can also apply lettering to the machine according to the client’s wishes. At the finishing touch, the machine is checked by the quality controller. This involves checking whether the machine meets the Gouweleeuw quality standard and whether everything is working properly. As soon as the machine is completely ready, it gets a quality sticker.
The average lead time for a machine in our paint shop is about 15 working days. This obviously depends on the size of the machine, but also on the condition of the machine you want to have painted. All work processes take place at our location in Emmeloord. This allows us to realise an efficient process flow for all our painting work.
