For Czech producer of pigment pastes, REPLAC-BM, accuracy and repeatability is everything. In order to allow purchasers to mix the paint exactly according to their colour charts, the mixing formulas need to be precise down to the milligram. Up until now, the process of producing pigment pastes has been liable to human error with technicians taking care of most measuring and mixing. Now, with the introduction of robotics, the company aims to perfect the process.
“Our goal was not to replace human technicians, but to bring the whole process of developing mixing formulas to a much higher level”, says Roman Berný, owner and director of REPLAC-BM.
