Over the years, AIGLE has developed several flocking units for metalic springs; used mainly in the automotive industry. The flocked springs are used in the opening-doors systems. The flock reduces the noise in the passenger compartment and helps the sliding of the spring inside its seat.

AIGLE has designed and manufactured complete flocking systems consisting of:

  • A system for loading, unloading and/or handling springs with robots and air transporters
  • A system for gluing applications by spray painting
  • A flocking unit equipped with electro-pneumatic guns for an adequate distribution of flock

The flocking machine is then equipped with a system for flock recovery through collectors connected to suction systems

  • An oven for glue drying
  • A cleaning cabin that through nozzles air supplied by dedicated fans is blown. A suction system recovers and filters the excess flock
  • An electric board

This kind of plants allows:

  • High productivity
  • Uniformity of application of flock around the spring
  • Flexibility of the system for springs of different diameter and length
