C.A.Technologies introduces the latest addition to the CAT gun line - the BOBCAT Air Assist Airless gun designed for production wood and metal finishing. Features include lightweight design, stainless steel fluid passages and an integrated fluid filter. The handle is ergonomically designed to reduce fatigue and fit comfortably in any size hand. The trigger pull has been designed to be ultra light resulting in less muscle strain and operator fatigue. An innovative trigger safety has also been integrated into the gun to provide optimum safety. The BOBCAT's superior atomization is achieved with the precise geometry of the airless tip and HVLP air cap, giving you the finest finish possible. C.A.Technologies is now offering a new lightweight and flexible fluid hose. The hose is 1/8" in diameter and will be standard with all BOBCAT wall mount and cart mount outfits.
The Cougar Air Assist Airless is a fine finish gun for production wood or metal fine finish spraying. Features include all stainless steel fluid passages, ergonomic design, integrated fluid filter and easy trigger pull. Superfine soft atomization is achieved with precise geometry of airless fluid tip and low volume aircap that mix at the locus of atomization. Delivers desired finishes at production speeds. Pump (below) and gun system can be operated with a 1.5 hp compressor.
The new auto BOBCAT AAA has all stainless steel wetted areas, great for woodworking and metal finishing. It encompasses a new revolutionary needle design that simplifies maintenance and cleaning. Each gun is packaged with the ability to be used in circulating or non-circulating systems. The gun circulates very close to the tip to minimize material settling. The auto BOBCAT is designed for being a direct replacement for existing competitors guns with virtually no changes in mounting block or hardware.
Note: Carbide tips spray pattern is guaranteed to +/- 5 degrees (one inch). Double degrees to determine fan inches.
*The 36-XXX-F is the new opti-tip that is proven to help reduce micro-bubbles when spraying primers and waterborne coatings. Opti-tips also provide optimized atomization of top coats, primers and paints.
The Air Assist Airless pump from C.A.T. is an all stainless 14:1 ratio pump for production fine finish spraying of wood or other fine finish applications. The air motor incorporates a unique magnetic "no stall" valve design. This simple direct acting valve is also resistant to icing, has a long life carbon fiber cylinder and integrated noise suppression design for quiet operation.The fluid section is all stainless featuring a non-contact pump tube that never wears out. Also featured is a cartridge style piston seal and guide for quick field replacement. Unit has a large capacity solvent cup and 360 degree fluid inlet/outlet orientation.
The New Air Assist Airless pump from C.A.T. is an all stainless 20:1 ratio pump for higher viscosity materials and multi-gun operation, incorporates a totally enclosed throat seal to reduce contamination as well as a sight gauge for ease of checking lubricant levels. This is a durable and dependable pump for continuous operation with a 2 GPM displacement for single or multiple gun applications (8 guns up to 13 thousands tip). The air motor magnetic no stall trip mechanism insures smooth pump stroke transition with no "surge" or "wink" in the spray pattern maximizing transfer efficiency. The fluid section is all stainless steel and can be used for most solvent and waterborne coatings, paints, pigmented lacquers, pre and post catalyzed materials and primers. The new "Cat Fast Clamp" makes for easy and rapid removal for maintenance of the fluid section from the air motor. These were built for easy "field" repairs with fewer parts lowering maintenance costs and equipment down time. An optional separate fluid section fluid filter with multiple outlets is also available. The standard fluid section utilizes a spring seal configuration on the lower portion and a self-adjusting "V" packing on the upper portion. An optional self-adjusting "V" packing for the lower portion is also available for more abrasive coatings.
The New CATalyzer™ pump from C.A.T. is an all stainless 10:1 mixing ratio pump for all types of catalyzed fine finishing applications. This pumps innovative design allows a perfect 10 to 1 mixing ratio that is carried out through the "Quad Valve" to reduce the amount of waste when dealing with catalyzed materials. The Quad Valve utilizes two bypass levers, one for the catalyst and one for the base material so that the two can be simultaneously mixed within the pump for easy operation. The MIX GUARD™ is a unique feature of the CATalyzer which senses an "off ratio" condition in the mix chamber and shuts off the unit preventing under or over catalyzed material from being sprayed.
