“Sinto was very willing to cooperate with the best development, since the beginning. This was a big difference from other companies.”

They opened their Painting Complex in Brazil in 2012.

In recent years, the concept of the painting process in general has undergone very big changes, especially in terms of product quality, including visual aspects. In response to these changes, JCB do Brasil, the country’s third largest manufacturer of construction machinery for the civil sector, opened their Painting Complex in 2012.

Before opening the Painting Complex, JCB sent all of their products to external suppliers, so they had to manage the entire supply chain. With their extensive product range, it was very complex to ensure that different suppliers with different equipment and staff were able to provide the same standardized product. Amid this, they received references from shot blasting companies, and Sinto was one of them.

“Sinto was very willing to cooperate with the best development, since the beginning. This was a big difference from other companies.”

From the beginning, Sinto’s stance regarding product development was different from other companies. JCB has products from 5 kg to 4 tons, with different dimensions and processes, that all have to achieve the same high product quality. Their Manufacturing division explains, “Sinto was very willing to cooperate with the best development, since the beginning. This was a big difference from other companies.”

Another important factor was distance. With such complex equipment, they wanted to have Sinto close to their factory in case of an eventual need for service and technical assistance.

Maintenance was another relevant point. Due to the equipment size, they expected much higher maintenance costs than what they actually have. With the exception of parts that naturally wear out over time due to the manufacturing process, they have not had any occurrences during the last six years that would interrupt their production chain or interfere with their business.

They hope manufacturers will provide new solutions for fire safety.

One of the major risks of blast equipment is the risk of fires. For installation of the new equipment, JCB was looking for a machine that has fire prevention and countermeasures. Some options based on CO2 and based on lime were offered, but due to the cost, they proved difficult to include in the machine. JCB believes this is an opportunity for all manufacturers in the field to propose new solutions to this critical fire safety issue.

The prospects for JCB are very good.

Recently, an investment of 100 million BRL was announced for the plant, in order to support an increase in their product capacity. “This will increase our product portfolio for our Brazilian market, too,” JCB states. “Prospects are good.”

Since the beginning of the Painting Complex in 2012, Sinto has been very willing to work with JCB, and JCB believes that Sinto retains this culture. “In an eventual need of a new investment, surely we will look at Sinto again.”
