Advanced Alloy Wheel Repairs provides specialised work in repairing and restoring damaged alloy wheels. Oliver Technologies was selected to design and install a conveyerised powder coat and pre-treatment facility within the company’s Melbourne plant, to support alloy wheel refurbishment.

We proposed a solution that involved installatio of a chemical stripping facility, powder cure oven, floor conveyor, 2 dry cartridge powder booths and a wet spray touch up booth, and supply of a manual powder coat unit. This process enabled Advanced Alloys to replicate the process used by the original wheel manufactures, ensuring that the finished product matched that of the original wheels.

The project was delivered over 3 week installation period.

Oliver Technologies was selected for its capability not only to manufacture components but also its ability to oversee and manage the complete project from end-to-end.
