DCR Systems LLC announced it has been granted patent number “US 8,943,999 B2” for the design of a unique paint spraybooth system that enables the collision repair operations within the company’s nationwide network to vastly increase the volume of painted automotive components moving through the repair process.
The patented system was designed to maximize the utilization of space within an extended paint booth that is combined with an offset rail system, allowing for multitasking within the paint process as operators can work simultaneously on several painted pieces without concern of cross contamination or other factors that disrupt the painting process.
“Conventional paint booths are typically limited to just one car or a total of its components,” explained Michael Giarrizzo, Jr., president and CEO of DCR Systems and developer of the paint booth patent. “Our re-designed refinish system alters the size and configuration of the production zone, streamlines the paint process and significantly increases the capacity of a single cabin paint booth.”
The company’s current turnkey accident repair centers, which it operates for its dealer network, have been retrofitted to the new paint booth design, according to Giarrizzo. Presently, DCR Systems operates centers in Ohio, New York, North Carolina and Massachusetts.
