SATAjet 4000 B - In Global Use

In our last SATA Newsletter, we published testimonials of several painters in Germany on their SATAjet 4000 B. Following, we have included further testimonials of end-users from all over the world. Our international customers are equally impressed with our latest spray gun generation. Here, they talk now about their switch from the preceeding model as well as their experiences in daily work. SATA wants to thank all participants for their interesting feedback.

Mr. Colas Dimitri:

I have been working with SATA spray guns for 20 years and I am amazed at the material savings of the SATAjet 4000 B RP RP is an acronym for Reduced Pressure - optimized high pressure spray guns which achieve perfect finishes as well as transfer efficiency rates exceeding 65%. RP spray guns comply with the legislation of the EU VOC directive.   Switching from high pressure technology to RP technology is easily mastered by every painter, as it will allow him to continue working "as before". SATA RP spray guns are therefore also referred to as "Super Speed" spray equipment. X» reducing the clear coat consumption by 20 to 25%.

Mr. Francis Fleuriot:

In 1996, our company worked with SATA spray guns for the first time. Now, we exclusively work with SATA spray guns. I am impressed by the even material flow and the fan size of the SATAjet 4000 B. I consider the combination of SATAjet 4000 B spray gun and RPSRPS = Rapid Preparation System - One-way cup system for the efficient application of paint. It is the ideal system for mixing, painting, refilling and storing of left-over paint.The SATA RPS is available in 0.3 l, 0.6l and 0.9l cup sizes and fits on the following spray gun models without adapter:
SATAjet 4000 BSATAjet 3000 BSATAjet 1000 BSATAjet 100 BSATAjet 2000 HVLP (2. Gen.)SATAjet RPSATAminijet 3000 B HVLP (with SATA RPS 0.3 l “minijet”)X»

I have been a professional painter for 34 years and have used SATA spray guns for 17 years. I believed there was no other spray gun that can feel as good as my SATA NR 95. I felt I could not achieve this special brilliance and smoothness with any other spray gun. However, some time ago, a friend of mine asked me if I would like to try a SATAjet 4000 B RP RP is an acronym for Reduced Pressure - optimized high pressure spray guns which achieve perfect finishes as well as transfer efficiency rates exceeding 65%. RP spray guns comply with the legislation of the EU VOC directive.   Switching from high pressure technology to RP technology is easily mastered by every painter, as it will allow him to continue working "as before". SATA RP spray guns are therefore also referred to as "Super Speed" spray equipment. X». I had never felt comfortable with a new spray gun but I have to confess that I was deeply impressed from the very first beginning. My colleague and I shared this spray gun for three weeks for the clear coat application.

We agree that the atomisation is of unrivalled quality which we have never experienced before. Clear coat can be applied wetter and smoother even with the first layer and not after two or three layers only. Furthermore, edges on front lids and other even surfaces do no longer look like being over-coated. Even flash-off cycles between two coats are significantly shorter now.

Our conclusion: The feel and the features of the new spray gun are the best ever. As a result, the NR 95 has officially retired now. Thank you, SATA, great job.

I have been a painter for 20 years now and the foreman of the group of painters within our company CRC during approximately the last ten years.

I have worked with several SATA models so far: the SATAjet 90, the SATA NR2000, the SATAjet 3000 and now with the SATAjet 4000 B. My personal experience with this spray gun I would describe as excellent.

You can instantly see the quality of the SATAjet 4000 B HVLPHVLP = High Volume Low Pressure - low spray pressure technology.Terminology for an internationally recognized low-pressure technology whereby the transfer efficiency rate has to exceed 65%, while the maximum air cap pressure is below 0.7 bar.X»: I immediately noticed the improved material saving. Even when working with colours which are difficult to apply, we have managed to reduce the number of reworks quite drastically. We usually work with the nozzle sizes 1.2, WSB, 1.3 and 1.4.

Converting to the SATAjet 4000 B, we also noticed that it requires less Inlet PressureThe inlet pressure on the spray gun should always be correctly adjusted. This is particularly easy with the DIGITAL technology of the SATAjet 5000 DIGITAL or with the retrofit SATA adam 2. It is also possible, however, to connect a standard air micrometer with manometer to the gun. Since pressure in combination with the supply of compressed air (air consumption) has a great influence on optimum results, you should always ensure to set the inlet pressure as recommended. You will find information on the correct pressure to be used in the paint application sheet of the paint manufacturers or on the web pages reserved for each individual SATA spray gun.X». It is a very quiet gun and achieves an even better finish than before. This is particularly the case with the nozzle sizes 1.2 and 1.3.

I would say the SATAjet 4000 B is just perfect.

My name is Ron Coan and I am a member of the Mobsteel Crew. We paint our vehicles with SATA spray guns exclusively.

SATA RP spray guns are therefore also referred to as "Super Speed" spray equipment. X» DIGITALAll SATA high-performance spray guns which feature a digital pressure display integrated in the gun handle are classified by the term “DIGITAL”. What is pressure Indication required for? To ensure best possible colour matching, you should follow exactly the parameters recommended by the respective paint manufacturer. Among others, this includes the air inlet pressure on the spray gun. The more you deviate from the recommended pressure the more the actually achieved colour tone will deviate as well. Why should I use DIGITAL spray guns? DIGITAL paint spray guns from SATA measure the air inlet pressure on the spray gun electronically and thus accurately and also indicate it on the digital, easy-to-read display. With DIGITAL spray guns, you can be sure to reproduce precisely the required colour tone and thus avoid costly re-work. DIGITAL guns are particularly easy to handle, since they are 20% shorter and 20% lighter than the equivalent SATA spray guns with add-on manometer and micrometer. With DIGITAL spray guns, there is also no cumbersome disassembly of the manometer and the micrometer prior to cleaning of the spray gun in a gun washer machine.  Do the electronic components resist the rigors of daily use? If a few basic principles are followed, SATA DIGITAL guns are completely solvent-proof.  As a matter of fact, DIGTIAL guns are also shock-proof and explosion-proof.X» are a great addition to the SATA products already used in our bodyshop.

This completely new designed spray gun has a perfect atomisation and allows me to work with almost no fatigue.

At the same time, it is a well balanced gun with an incredibly designed gun trigger. As a result, we achieve the level of quality which our demanding customers expect on their cars.

Since 1980, I have always used the latest available SATA equipment with this equipment, I have painted everything from a 20 Million US-Dollar concept car up to a Bizzarrini that won the Pebble Beach Concours contest.

I think that SATA has continuously raised the barThis is the physical unit used for the measurement of pressure in Europe. Material and air pressure are indicated in bar (1 bar = approx. 14.5 psi).X» and that SATA simply manufactures the best equipment for painters - the new SATAjet 4000 is yet another example.

I immediately noticed the improvements, as this gun has a much lower noise level and an even more defined and compact spray pattern.

The low weight of the spray gun gives me the ability to achieve better results with a lot less effort.

Compared to other spray guns I have worked with so far, the SATAjet 4000 B is much more ergonomic and the spray fan much "more comfortable" allowing me to perform better.

After having tested the SATAjet 4000 B, I can hardly imagine to ever use an alternative spray gun again.

My name is Ben Lemoi, painting technician at A1 Custom Auto Body in East Providence, Rhode Island, USA. I have been a painter for 15 years and have tried several spray gun manufacturers; until not long ago, I used a competitor spray gun.

However, our bodyshop has five SATA spray guns and I have purchased a SATAjet 4000 B RP RP is an acronym for Reduced Pressure - optimized high pressure spray guns which achieve perfect finishes as well as transfer efficiency rates exceeding 65%.

The cleaning is impressively easy - much easier than with any other spray gun I have used until today.

My manager, Mark Thompson, asked me the other day if I took painting lessons since I have painted with my SATAjet 4000 B. The reasons for his question are the unmatched laydown of the metallics and the fact that my paint jobs are completely flawless.

What shall I say, I simply love this spray gun.
