EcoInCure: space-saving oven technology for electric cars
Bietigheim-Bissingen, June 13th, 2018 – Electric, fully networked, highly automated: the new car brand Byton is consistently designed for the mobility of the future. The Chinese start-up also insists on state-of-the-art standards for manufacturing and commissioned Dürr to construct a complete paint shop. Distinguishing features are a 20% reduction in footprint and the use of pioneering technologies. An example of this is the EcoInCure oven, which is ideal for electric vehicles.

The new paint shop is initially designed for 150,000 vehicles per year – equivalent to 30 units per hour. Growth has already been factored in, since the capacity can easily be doubled.
