SATAjet 4000 B - Made for the Best

On the occasion of the Automechanika 2010, SATA launched their latest spray gun generation: the SATAjet 4000 B, replacing the successful SATAjet 3000 B.

The SATAjet 4000 B attracts right away with its distinctive, modern design and its compact, smaller size.


Ergonomics

The new, curved gun handle of the SATAjet 4000 B has been designed to fit the hand like a glove. The low centre of gravity improves the balance of the gun,  thus minimising the strain on the wrist. The weight of the SATAjet 4000 B has been reduced by 15 % compared to its predecessor. With integrated 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» pressure gauge 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:

The control elements also come in a new design. Due to their improved ProfileThis relates to the inner width of air lines and air hoses. The longer the airline the larger the inner diameter has to be dimensioned, in order to minimize the pressure loss and to ensure sufficient air volume..X», they can be exactly adjusted even when wearing gloves.

The round/flat spray control has been completely redesigned as well: with one quarter turn only required from open to closed, the spray fan can now be precisely tuned with linear effect to the shape of object to be painted – for safe and even more comfortable paint application.

New Nozzle Concept

With the new SATAjet 4000 B, every paint system can be safely and perfectly applied; painting becomes second nature. The spray gun with its extremely uniform and soft spray fan smoothly lays down the material on the object, resulting in top class finishes. Exact colour match precision, perfect gloss and uniform paint distribution are immediately obvious. As a result, anyone who has tried the SATAjet 4000 B will never want to put the spray gun aside again. The recommended spray gun 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» of the 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» version has been further reduced, now ranging between only 2 to maximum 2.2 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». Additionally, the new nozzle concept helps reduce the noise level by up to 50 %.


Of course, the SATAjet 4000 B fully complies with the strict VOCVOC means Volatile Organic Compounds; i.e. organic solvents.These solvents like many other substances trigger the formation of ground level ozone in combination with solar radiation.VOC guidelines established by the European Community (EU) are intended to contribute to reducing solvent emissions. These guidelines will be valid beginning November 1, 2004 for new shops and November 1, 2007 for all companies. Meanwhile, the VOC Guidelines have been incorporated into national law in most EU member states.X» regulations, with transfer rates far exceeding 65 %.

Easy cleaning and maintenance

Like the previous gun model, the SATAjet 4000 B features a shiny, easy to clean chrome surface. During the design process, special attention was paid to smooth material passages without any edges or undercuts. Furthermore, the new fluid tip sealing additionally reduces the cleaning effort.

The SATAjet 4000 B is also equipped with a trigger cover element to protect the paint needle from overspray, thus increasing the lifetime of the paint needle packing. Furthermore, self-tensioning paint needle and air piston packings minimise time-consuming maintenance repairs. The proven cup connection (Quick Cup Connector) with bayonet for a quick and clean cup change has been adopted from its predecessor to ensure best conditions for the use of the 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:

disposable cup system. To save time during disassembly and cleaning, the air cap thread has been further shortened.

The air cap consists of sturdy chrome-plated brass, while fluid tip and paint needle are made of stainless steel. In combination with the corrision-resistant chrome surface of the drop-forged gun body, the spray gun is extremely robust and waterborne proof.

Made in Germany

SATA spray guns are exclusively developed and manufactured in Germany. Strict quality controls in place monitor every single manufacturing process. The high precision components are assembled with ultimate care, while each nozzle set is manually fine-tuned. With the SATAjet 4000 B, the painter will achieve perfect finishes.
