DeVilbiss have announced the launch of DV1, their next generation spray gun. It is, without doubt, the most advanced DeVilbiss spray gun on the market – no other refinish spray gun in the range is built like it or performs like it.

Signalling a huge technological advance for the automotive refinish professional, the DV1 brings ground-breaking levels of performance and efficiency, a gun designed and developed by professional painters for professional painters.

This gun is not simply an evolutionary progression. Everything is new. New ergonomics. New air cap design. New fluid tip technology. New co-axial air valve design and advanced atomisation technology that sets a distinct precedent in performance and control.

Since becoming part of Carlisle Fluid Technologies, DeVilbiss has experienced significant growth through further investment in cutting-edge technology, including the latest in computational fluid dynamics, advanced machine tools and metrology.

Technicians and engineers at the DeVilbiss Atomisation Centre of Excellence (ACE) have achieved superior atomisation with high application speeds at lower air pressure. By maintaining a consistent particle size throughout the spray pattern, the DV1 ensures accurate colour reproduction and flake lay, even with the notoriously difficult, highly pigmented silver basecoats. This means professional painters can relax in the knowledge that they can get the job done right the first time, therefore eliminating rework, reducing material consumption and maximising their earnings potential.

Advanced ergonomics and a unique combination of lightweight design and new technology materials assure maximum operator comfort and minimum fatigue.

Every part of the DV1 has been designed and engineered for ultimate performance. Pull that ultra-smooth trigger and the result is total control. The DV1’s effortlessly balanced, consistent spray pattern ensures that the painter can achieve optimum transfer efficiency, reducing material consumption and resulting in accelerated production speeds, enabling the painter to move onto the next job, fast.

By incorporating the latest technology, servicing and maintenance is a walk in the park. The use of lubricants has been entirely eliminated, rejecting any chance of contamination. What’s more, the DV1 is easy to clean and every component is available from your DeVilbiss distributor for quick and straightforward replacement, whenever necessary.
