ABB Capacity ™ for Paint is a remedy profile for automating as well as digitizing paint modern technology and also paint lines. It allows car producers to manage the paint procedure in lots of methods.
Today’s automobile manufacturing is characterized by short product life cycles along with a multitude of versions as well as versions, which are manufactured on common production lines with a high degree of modification. Body paint is just one of the key processes in the automobile sector to have a straight influence on the outside look of a car. Car producers affix excellent value to the high quality of the end product, and buy one of the most modern paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Information analysis for maximized painting procedures
Within a paint cell with cutting edge conveyor and also process technology, special paint robots handle different painting tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface area as well as the subsequent application of topcoats and also clear lacquers. An optimum interplay of all components should be accomplished in order to obtain the very best feasible paint result. The series of various body variants and also colors likewise involves brand-new demands for painting systems: intelligent programs can, for example, set the individual paint specifications for the atomizer’s schedule, which is identified by the color, the car model and also the manufacturing facility.
By keeping track of and also assessing the information from manufacturing processes as well as equipment, automobile makers can currently create their paint systems much more successfully and also thus increase productivity. ABB sustains its clients with its innovation as well as its ABB Ability for Paint digital portfolio, which enables them to optimize their paint procedures, reduce product as well as power usage, and enhance completion results of the paint process. The variety of services becomes part of the entire cross-industry electronic experience dropping under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This includes an open, interoperable cloud platform that connects gadgets, systems, options, and services in order to raise performance, productivity, effectiveness and also safety and security throughout the operational life process. ABB Ability ™ innovation products and services are used in a wide variety of markets, helping to produce substantial added worth via digitalization and closed-loop services.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, firms will accomplish a first-run rate of practically 100 percent with constant accessibility thanks to early fault discovery.
Adaptable machining approaches as needed.
Relying on the sort of core, Inacore turns to 3 optional handling methods after elimination: In the initial version, the IRB 6700 locations the cores on the deburring table on core certain assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 relocates the separating plane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that grabs the cores again and also puts them on the elimination shuttle. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety location of the cell and also presents them to the driver for removing into the core shelfs and also for hand-operated visual inspection. In the 2nd operating setting, appropriate for simple core contours, the removal robot removes the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are after that deposited on the removal shuttle bus. In the third version, the IRB 6700 gets rid of the cores from the core box as well as puts them straight on the removal shuttle without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove reduces space demands and costs.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never ever operate both deburring robots per cell independently, so this configuration was the noticeable selection,” states Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of room counts. Due to the fact that we just require one robotic control unit in the MultiMove, we reduce space needs and also prices”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader values reliability.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Director of Inacore and Laempe Mössner Sinto, describes: “We value the integrity of the ABB robots in rough settings and the great versatility of the programming, specifically during deburring. In addition, ABB was able to score with our various other requirements as well as also with the rate.” The companies behind Inacore have extensive experience with robotics for core making and spreading; Laempe and Scheuchl carry out ABB robots for consumers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core manufacturing utilizing robots. Together with ABB, Laempe installed the initial robotic in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Provider. For several years, Scheuchl has actually counted on robotics for spreading manufacturing and raw casting machining. Throughout the brand-new installation for Inacore, the assembly team and also the programmers from Laempe as well as Scheuchl offered all services for the implementation of the ABB robotics.
A financially viable solution.
Inacore think that automation solutions with robots are the very best technique to produce with high reproducibility and also top quality. “We achieve much shorter cycle times and also lower employees requirements and can hence decrease prices,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Managing Supervisor of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From a business point of view, ABB robots are preferred for their low total as well as application expenses. Furthermore, the robot eliminates workers of physically hefty, recurring and also dangerous jobs, thus increasing work safety”.
