Tesla Giga Berlin will get the world's most advanced paint shop. Using the new painting technology, Tesla cars will have a special, attractive, and lively look. Giga Berlin will have an advanced paint shop, which will be able to apply paint in three layers. Several layers of paint give the color a realistic depth, which makes the colors brighter than possible with traditional paint systems.

“If you get dimension, there’s something called flop, where you see the change in color with curvature,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk. “If you can do something like lay down a gloss layer, then lay down a layer with color tint, then lay down another gloss layer, you can get kind of a 3D feeling to the paint. It just pops. It's so much better than anything else. We’re going to do this in Berlin for the first time.”

Tesmanian reported yesterday that equipment for Giga Berlin will be supplied by SCHOLPP, a subsidiary just a few miles from the factory. SCHOLPP is available as an industrial transport and assembly service provider for all OEMs and industrial suppliers supplying machines and systems for Tesla's new factory in Germany.

Among other things, the company will install equipment in the Paint Shop. The company's website states:

Construction and assembly of complete Paint Shop in the Tesla Gigafactory:

1. Assembly and installation of systems for painting electric vehicles
2. Competence for many makes and types of systems (Dürr, Eisenmann)

    The equipment for the world's most advanced paint shop will be supplied by Geico Taikisha. Geico is a world leader in the design and construction of turnkey automated auto body paint shops.

    With the Pardis Project, launched in 2005, Geico Taikisha was the world’s first company to offer a zero environmental impact paintshop, reducing consumption by 70%. The target date set for June 16, 2020, was achieved 3 years ahead of schedule, in 2017.

     



    The Smart Paintshop by Geico revolutionizes auto body paintshops with innovative and energy-efficient 4.0 technologies. It received the SurCar Cannes Innovation Award for the best research and innovation worldwide.

    @gigafactory_4/Twitter reports that the first machines by Geico for GigaBerlin have already arrived.
