Chevrolet Corvette Plant Gets $439 Million in Upgrades

nj3ghXnNB3AhCy3-5akT8E272EFtbJfQ764eSVLQd0rgNqfSj6_Nqi1B4MRvoQ7-8aFx3RAZktAvYMwdYEtAyCtUdVgQ0wp-sLe9mi_fHHyns1Su-4kSImGIAzIs5YVTgd2FXFp6SMCpJuW55_eazp4SLrnb6uudg2oYHMM=s0-d-e1-ft
Corvette paint is about to get a lot more high-tech and a lot more environmentally friendly thanks to a $439 million investment by General Motors. Construction of the new paint shop, which includes substantial technology upgrades, is planned to begin this summer and take approximately two years to complete.
Along with new tooling and robots, the paint shop’s state-of-the-art environmental and efficiency enhancements include:

  • Dry Scrubber Booth Technology with Limestone Handling System designed to eliminate sludge water and waste
  • Light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting for process decks for improved visual inspection as well as energy savings
  • State-of-the-art FANUC robots with Versa-bell 3 electrostatic applicators for an extremely smooth finish and maximum transfer efficiency, saving 25 percent of the paint material used, which also benefits the environment
  • Longer, high-efficiency baking ovens for exceptional paint finish and lower energy use.
Read more about the project online here.
