ABB Ability ™ for Paint is a solution profile for automating and also digitizing paint modern technology and also paint lines. It enables auto suppliers to manage the painting procedure in several means.
Today’s automotive manufacturing is characterized by short product life cycles along with a wide variety of models as well as variations, which are made on typical assembly line with a high level of personalization. Body paint is among the essential procedures in the vehicle market to have a straight influence on the exterior appearance of a car. Auto producers connect terrific relevance to the top quality of the end product, and buy one of the most modern-day paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Data evaluation for enhanced paint processes
Within a paint cell with modern conveyor as well as process modern technology, unique paint robotics take on numerous paint tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface and also the subsequent application of topcoats and also clear lacquers. An optimal interaction of all components should be attained in order to get the very best possible paint outcome. The range of various body variations and also shades additionally involves new demands for painting systems: smart programs can, as an example, set the specific paint specifications for the atomizer’s travel plan, which is figured out by the color, the lorry model and also the manufacturing facility.
By checking and also examining the information from production procedures and also devices, vehicle makers can now develop their paint systems even more efficiently and also thus increase performance. ABB sustains its consumers through its technology and also its ABB Capacity for Paint electronic profile, which enables them to maximize their painting processes, reduce product and also energy usage, and improve completion outcomes of the painting process. The series of options is part of the entire cross-industry electronic knowledge falling under the umbrella of ABB Capability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud platform that connects tools, systems, options, and also services in order to increase performance, efficiency, efficiency and also safety throughout the operational life process. ABB Capability ™ innovation services and products are made use of in a wide range of sectors, aiding to produce considerable added worth via digitalization and closed-loop remedies.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, companies will certainly achieve a first-run rate of virtually 100 percent with constant schedule thanks to very early fault discovery.
Flexible machining methods as called for.
Relying on the kind of core, Inacore counts on three optional handling approaches after removal: In the initial version, the IRB 6700 areas the cores on the deburring table on core particular assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the splitting plane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 then grabs the cores once more and also places them on the elimination shuttle. The shuttle takes the cores out of the safety and security area of the cell as well as offers them to the driver for clearing right into the core shelfs and also for hands-on visual examination. In the second operating mode, suitable for straightforward core shapes, the elimination robot gets rid of the cores under a chain area for deburring. The cores are then transferred on the elimination shuttle. In the 3rd version, the IRB 6700 eliminates the cores from the core box as well as places them directly on the elimination shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove reduces room requirements as well as expenses.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never operate the two deburring robotics per cell independently, so this configuration was the apparent choice,” claims Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of space counts. Because we just require one robot control unit in the MultiMove, we decrease space requirements as well as prices”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader appreciates integrity.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Director of Inacore and Laempe Mössner Sinto, explains: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robotics in severe settings and the great flexibility of the shows, specifically during deburring. Additionally, ABB had the ability to rack up with our other demands and likewise with the price.” The companies behind Inacore have comprehensive experience with robotics for core making and also spreading; Laempe as well as Scheuchl apply ABB robots for clients worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production utilizing robots. Along with ABB, Laempe mounted the initial robotic in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Provider. For years, Scheuchl has actually counted on robotics for casting manufacturing as well as raw casting machining. Throughout the brand-new installment for Inacore, the setting up team and the programmers from Laempe and also Scheuchl offered all services for the execution of the ABB robots.
An economically sensible option.
Inacore think that automation services with robotics are the best method to generate with high reproducibility and quality. “We achieve much shorter cycle times and also reduced employees needs as well as can hence reduce costs,” states Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Handling Director of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From a company perspective, ABB robotics are preferred for their reduced overall and application costs. In addition, the robot alleviates staff members of physically heavy, recurring as well as hazardous tasks, therefore boosting job-related security”.
