ABB Ability ™ for Paint is a remedy portfolio for automating and digitizing paint innovation as well as paint lines. It enables cars and truck manufacturers to control the painting process in lots of methods.
Today’s auto production is identified by brief product life process in addition to a multitude of versions and also variations, which are produced on usual production lines with a high level of personalization. Body paint is one of the vital procedures in the automotive market to have a straight impact on the outside look of a vehicle. Automobile manufacturers connect fantastic importance to the high quality of the end product, as well as invest in the most contemporary paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Information analysis for maximized painting processes
Within a paint cell with state-of-the-art conveyor and also procedure technology, unique paint robotics take on various paint tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface and the succeeding application of overcoats as well as clear lacquers. An ideal interaction of all parts must be accomplished in order to acquire the very best feasible paint result. The range of various body versions and also shades likewise requires new needs for paint systems: smart programs can, as an example, established the specific paint criteria for the atomizer’s schedule, which is established by the shade, the car design and also the manufacturing facility.
By monitoring as well as assessing the data from production processes and devices, auto producers can currently create their painting systems much more effectively and also thus raise efficiency. ABB sustains its clients with its innovation and also its ABB Capability for Paint electronic profile, which permits them to maximize their painting procedures, decrease product and also power usage, and also enhance the end outcomes of the paint procedure. The range of services becomes part of the entire cross-industry digital know-how falling under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud platform that attaches gadgets, systems, options, as well as services in order to enhance efficiency, performance, efficiency and security throughout the operational life cycle. ABB Ability ™ technology products and services are used in a wide variety of sectors, helping to create considerable included worth with digitalization as well as closed-loop options.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, business will certainly attain a first-run price of practically 100 per cent with continual accessibility thanks to very early fault discovery.
Flexible machining methods as called for.
Depending upon the sort of core, Inacore relies on three optional handling techniques after elimination: In the very first version, the IRB 6700 areas the cores on the deburring table on core details support pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the splitting airplane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that picks up the cores once more and positions them on the removal shuttle bus. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety location of the cell and also offers them to the driver for removing right into the core shelfs as well as for hands-on visual assessment. In the second operating setting, appropriate for straightforward core contours, the removal robot gets rid of the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are after that deposited on the elimination shuttle. In the 3rd version, the IRB 6700 eliminates the cores from the core box and places them directly on the removal shuttle without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove decreases area requirements and prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never run the two deburring robots per cell individually, so this arrangement was the apparent option,” claims Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of area counts. Since we just require one robotic control unit in the MultiMove, we lower space needs and expenses”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer appreciates reliability.
Andreas Mössner, Managing Supervisor of Inacore as well as Laempe Mössner Sinto, explains: “We value the dependability of the ABB robots in harsh environments and also the excellent flexibility of the shows, especially during deburring. On top of that, ABB was able to rack up with our other requirements as well as additionally with the price.” The firms behind Inacore have comprehensive experience with robotics for core production and spreading; Laempe and also Scheuchl execute ABB robots for customers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core manufacturing using robotics. Along with ABB, Laempe installed the very first robotic in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Company. For many years, Scheuchl has actually depended on robotics for spreading production as well as raw spreading machining. Throughout the new setup for Inacore, the assembly team as well as the designers from Laempe and also Scheuchl offered all solutions for the execution of the ABB robots.
An economically sensible service.
Inacore think that automation services with robots are the best method to produce with high reproducibility as well as high quality. “We attain shorter cycle times and also lower personnel demands and also can thus minimize expenses,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Taking Care Of Director of Inacore and Scheuchl. “From a business point of view, ABB robots are favored for their low overall and execution costs. Additionally, the robot eliminates employees of literally heavy, repetitive as well as unsafe jobs, thus enhancing work safety”.
