ABB Capacity ™ for Paint is a service profile for automating as well as digitizing paint modern technology as well as paint lines. It enables car makers to manage the paint procedure in numerous ways.
Today’s auto manufacturing is characterized by short product life cycles as well as a multitude of versions as well as versions, which are produced on typical production lines with a high degree of modification. Body painting is one of the essential processes in the vehicle market to have a straight impact on the outside appearance of a lorry. Automobile suppliers connect great significance to the quality of the final product, and also invest in the most modern paint lines for their factories.
Information evaluation for enhanced paint procedures
Within a paint cell with modern conveyor as well as process innovation, special paint robotics handle numerous painting jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface area and the succeeding application of overcoats and clear lacquers. An optimal interplay of all parts have to be attained in order to acquire the most effective possible paint result. The range of various body variants and also shades also entails brand-new demands for painting systems: intelligent programs can, for instance, established the specific paint criteria for the atomizer’s schedule, which is determined by the shade, the lorry design and also the manufacturing facility.
By keeping an eye on and assessing the data from production processes and devices, auto makers can now design their painting systems much more effectively and also thus boost efficiency. ABB sustains its customers via its innovation and also its ABB Ability for Paint electronic profile, which enables them to optimize their painting processes, lower material as well as energy consumption, as well as enhance the end outcomes of the painting process. The variety of options becomes part of the entire cross-industry digital expertise dropping under the umbrella of ABB Capability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud system that connects tools, systems, options, as well as services in order to raise performance, performance, efficiency and also security throughout the functional life cycle. ABB Ability ™ innovation products and services are utilized in a vast array of markets, assisting to develop considerable added value via digitalization as well as closed-loop solutions.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, business will accomplish a first-run rate of virtually 100 per cent with continuous accessibility thanks to very early fault discovery.
Versatile machining techniques as required.
Relying on the kind of core, Inacore looks to three optional processing approaches after elimination: In the very first variation, the IRB 6700 places the cores on the deburring table on core certain assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 relocates the splitting plane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 then picks up the cores once more as well as places them on the removal shuttle. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety and security area of the cell and also offers them to the driver for clearing right into the core shelfs and also for hand-operated aesthetic assessment. In the 2nd operating setting, appropriate for straightforward core shapes, the elimination robotic gets rid of the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are then deposited on the removal shuttle bus. In the third version, the IRB 6700 removes the cores from the core box and puts them straight on the removal shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove lowers room needs and also prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never operate both deburring robotics per cell individually, so this setup was the apparent choice,” says Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of area counts. Because we only require one robot control system in the MultiMove, we reduce space demands and also costs”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer appreciates reliability.
Andreas Mössner, Managing Supervisor of Inacore and also Laempe Mössner Sinto, explains: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robotics in extreme settings and the good adaptability of the programs, especially during deburring. Furthermore, ABB was able to rack up with our various other demands as well as additionally with the cost.” The business behind Inacore have substantial experience with robots for core making and also spreading; Laempe and Scheuchl apply ABB robotics for clients worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production utilizing robotics. Along with ABB, Laempe set up the first robotic in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Service Provider. For several years, Scheuchl has actually depended on robots for casting manufacturing as well as raw casting machining. Throughout the new setup for Inacore, the assembly team and also the designers from Laempe as well as Scheuchl provided all services for the execution of the ABB robotics.
An economically sensible solution.
Inacore think that automation remedies with robotics are the best technique to produce with high reproducibility and top quality. “We accomplish shorter cycle times and also lower employees needs and can thus decrease costs,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Managing Supervisor of Inacore and Scheuchl. “From an organization point of view, ABB robotics are preferred for their reduced total as well as implementation expenses. Furthermore, the robot eliminates workers of physically heavy, recurring and hazardous jobs, thus raising job-related safety and security”.
