The new software developed by AkzoNobel and coatingAI will help customers to improve the application process and reduce their carbon footprint.

AkzoNobel and coatingAI have developed the new software Flightpath, a new technological solution that optimises the equipment settings to reduce defects and overspray, improving powder consumption while minimising costs, time and energy consumption.

“We are delighted to team up with coatingAI and strengthen our technical service capabilities. We proactively look for ways to support customers in becoming more sustainable in their operations and this will significantly improve our ability to help them get better results – while contributing to our own ambition of halving carbon emissions across the value chain by 2030,” has stated Remco Maassen van den Brink, Marketing Director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings.

The software, thanks to AI-based recommendations, allows customers to optimise equipment settings such as gun movement, resulting in a smoother and more consistent coverage with fewer defects. In addition, the software does not require complex integrations and, as conditions change, continuously adapts the recommended parameters.

“The collaboration with AkzoNobel has helped to accelerate our vision since day one. Our solution, built on the power of artificial intelligence and AkzoNobel’s technical expertise, will not only increase efficiency for their customers, but also drive greater sustainability within the powder coatings industry,” has added Marlon Boldrini, CEO of coatingAI.

“Collaborating with a startup like coatingAI – who are pushing boundaries to transform the coatings industry – means we can accelerate our own powder revolution and provide services like no other. It is the latest example of how we constantly innovate and look for new ways to offer customers the most progressive and sustainable solutions,” has concluded van den Brink.
