ABB Capability ™ for Paint is an option profile for automating and also digitizing paint innovation and also paint lines. It allows car manufacturers to control the painting procedure in several methods.
Today’s automotive production is identified by short item life cycles as well as a plethora of models and also variants, which are manufactured on common production lines with a high degree of modification. Body paint is just one of the crucial processes in the automobile sector to have a straight influence on the outside look of a lorry. Automobile producers affix terrific value to the high quality of the end product, and also invest in one of the most modern paint lines for their factories.
Data analysis for enhanced paint processes
Within a paint cell with cutting edge conveyor as well as process technology, special paint robots tackle numerous paint jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface area as well as the succeeding application of topcoats as well as clear lacquers. An optimal interaction of all components need to be achieved in order to get the most effective feasible paint outcome. The range of various body variations as well as colors additionally requires brand-new demands for paint systems: intelligent programs can, for example, established the specific paint criteria for the atomizer’s itinerary, which is determined by the shade, the vehicle design and the factory.
By monitoring and also analyzing the data from production procedures and also devices, car manufacturers can now develop their painting systems even more efficiently and also thus boost productivity. ABB sustains its consumers via its innovation and also its ABB Capability for Paint electronic portfolio, which enables them to enhance their paint procedures, lower product and also power usage, and also improve the end outcomes of the paint procedure. The variety of options belongs to the whole cross-industry digital experience falling under the umbrella of ABB Capacity ™. This includes an open, interoperable cloud system that links gadgets, systems, solutions, and services in order to increase performance, performance, efficiency as well as security throughout the functional life cycle. ABB Capability ™ modern technology products and services are used in a wide variety of industries, assisting to create significant included worth through digitalization and closed-loop services.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, companies will certainly achieve a first-run price of practically 100 percent with continual accessibility thanks to very early fault detection.
Versatile machining approaches as required.
Relying on the sort of core, Inacore resorts to 3 optional handling methods after removal: In the initial version, the IRB 6700 locations the cores on the deburring table on core certain assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the separating aircraft with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that gets the cores once more and positions them on the removal shuttle. The shuttle takes the cores out of the security location of the cell and also provides them to the operator for getting rid of into the core racks and for manual visual examination. In the second operating setting, suitable for straightforward core shapes, the elimination robot eliminates the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are then deposited on the elimination shuttle. In the 3rd variation, the IRB 6700 gets rid of the cores from the core box and also positions them directly on the elimination shuttle without an intermediate deburring action.
MultiMove reduces space requirements and also prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never operate the two deburring robotics per cell independently, so this arrangement was the obvious choice,” says Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of room matters. Because we just require one robot control system in the MultiMove, we lower space requirements and also expenses”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer appreciates dependability.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Director of Inacore and Laempe Mössner Sinto, explains: “We value the dependability of the ABB robots in harsh settings and the good adaptability of the shows, especially throughout deburring. Furthermore, ABB was able to rack up with our other requirements as well as also with the price.” The companies behind Inacore have considerable experience with robotics for core production as well as spreading; Laempe and Scheuchl implement ABB robotics for customers worldwide. Laempe is a leader in the automation of sand core production utilizing robots. Together with ABB, Laempe set up the first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Service Provider. For years, Scheuchl has relied on robotics for spreading production as well as raw casting machining. Throughout the brand-new installation for Inacore, the setting up group as well as the programmers from Laempe as well as Scheuchl supplied all solutions for the application of the ABB robots.
An economically viable service.
Inacore believe that automation options with robotics are the very best technique to generate with high reproducibility as well as high quality. “We attain much shorter cycle times and also lower employees requirements as well as can thus reduce prices,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Taking Care Of Supervisor of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From an organization point of view, ABB robots are favored for their reduced overall and execution expenses. Additionally, the robotic soothes staff members of physically heavy, repeated as well as dangerous tasks, thus raising work safety and security”.
