Fuji Spray is one of the original makers having started manufacturing HVLP turbine systems back in 1986.
50 years ago, households that bought a vacuum cleaner (for example Kirby), also received a small plastic spray gun with an attached paint jar. The spray gun was connected to the hose on one end and to the blower on the other. This was the birth of an HVLP gun. It didn't use high pressure, so it was assumed that it couldn't spray good enough. However, the biggest advantage of low pressure system was that it wasted less paint. The system that was thought to lack sophistication became one of the main equipment pieces used in spray tanning today.
