This is the Iwata Wider 1L Gravity Spraygun. The dependable quality, repeatability and stability. From “W” to “WIDER” again. The new model has arrived.
SPECIAL HVLP FEATURES:
High Transfer Efficiency
and Optimized Atomization
At the Low Air Pressure Range
The major challenges of painting are reducing paint consumption and VOC. We developed unique air cap, nozzle, and spray gun body mechanism for achieving high transfer efficiency and optimized atomization at the low air pressure range.
Compared with our conventional models, HVLP spray gun can save 20％~30% paint consumption.
HVLP spray gun has realized less paint scattering. It contributes to improvement of working environment in terms of extended maintenance period of spray booth and less paint bounce back to painter.
HVLP spray gun is the compliant gun that must be operated with its internal pressure of the air cap at 0.069 MPa or less, as prescribed by South Coast Air Quality Management District in the United States of America, which is the world’s strictest in environmental regulations.
- DESIGN – Ergonomic Design with the Focus on Functionality
In the course of applying an ergonomic design throughout, we also achieved a 5-g weight reduction. Every adjustment knob is tapered with deeper grooves, providing a surer grip for easier fine adjustments. We also built in a bushing into the back of the needle valve spring to make paint output adjustment smoother. The tip of the trigger has a smoother shape, for easier operation when applying lower paint volumes.
- MAINTENANCE – New models make maintenance easier
The new WIDER is designed for easier maintenance. We changed the thread pitch of the cap from 1.0 mm to 1.5 mm, so that it can be screwed on with 1.5 turns, which is half as many as before. Also, the back end of the needle valve is reshaped to make it easier to remove and attach. By adding straight threadless sections to the air and fluid nipples, we made it easier to attach the connectors.
- FEEL – Linear response pattern adjustment set
The previous pattern adjustment set reached around 45% of full pattern width with 1 turn, around 80% with 1.5 turns, and almost 100% or nearly fully open with 2 turns. Our newly-developed pattern adjustment set now provides around 35% with 1 turn, around 50% with 1.5 turns, and around 70% with 2 turns. This linear response to adjustment is intuitively easier to operate.
- REPEATABILITY – Revised Air Valve Seat Sets for a more consistent installation
Previous air valve seat sets consisted of a combination of large and small orifices in the air channel, so installing it into place could produce differences in air volume due to its’ position. This difference could potentially influence paint output and pattern width. We revised the design for the new WIDER, making the orifices much larger and more uniform so that installing the air valve seat set in produces more repeatable results. That enables even more consistent application.
