ABB Capability ™ for Paint is a remedy profile for automating and digitizing paint innovation and also paint lines. It allows vehicle producers to manage the paint process in several ways.
Today’s automotive manufacturing is defined by brief item life process as well as a wide variety of designs as well as versions, which are manufactured on usual production lines with a high level of customization. Body paint is just one of the key processes in the automotive sector to have a straight impact on the external look of a car. Auto suppliers attach terrific relevance to the high quality of the end product, as well as purchase one of the most modern paint lines for their factories.
Data analysis for optimized painting processes
Within a paint cell with state-of-the-art conveyor and procedure innovation, special paint robotics take on various painting tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface and also the subsequent application of topcoats as well as clear lacquers. An ideal interaction of all elements need to be accomplished in order to obtain the very best possible paint outcome. The variety of different body variants as well as colors likewise requires brand-new demands for paint systems: smart programs can, as an example, established the individual paint specifications for the atomizer’s travel plan, which is established by the color, the vehicle model and also the manufacturing facility.
By monitoring and also examining the information from manufacturing processes as well as tools, car makers can now create their painting systems much more efficiently as well as therefore enhance performance. ABB supports its clients with its innovation as well as its ABB Capability for Paint electronic portfolio, which allows them to maximize their paint processes, lower material and also power usage, and improve completion outcomes of the painting procedure. The variety of solutions belongs to the entire cross-industry electronic competence falling under the umbrella of ABB Capability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud system that connects tools, systems, solutions, and also services in order to boost performance, productivity, performance and also protection throughout the functional life process. ABB Capability ™ technology products and services are utilized in a vast array of sectors, assisting to produce substantial included value through digitalization and closed-loop remedies.
With ABB Ability for Paint, firms will attain a first-run rate of practically 100 percent with continuous availability thanks to early fault discovery.
Flexible machining methods as called for.
Depending upon the type of core, Inacore turns to three optional handling approaches after elimination: In the first variation, the IRB 6700 places the cores on the deburring table on core certain support pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the splitting aircraft with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that gets the cores once again as well as places them on the elimination shuttle. The shuttle takes the cores out of the security location of the cell as well as provides them to the driver for getting rid of into the core racks and for hands-on visual examination. In the second operating setting, appropriate for straightforward core contours, the removal robotic removes the cores under a chain area for deburring. The cores are after that transferred on the elimination shuttle. In the third version, the IRB 6700 eliminates the cores from the core box and also positions them directly on the removal shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring action.
MultiMove minimizes area needs and costs.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will certainly never run the two deburring robots per cell independently, so this configuration was the noticeable option,” claims Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of room matters. Because we just require one robot control system in the MultiMove, we decrease space requirements and also prices”.
Paint Technology 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer values dependability.
Andreas Mössner, Managing Director of Inacore and also Laempe Mössner Sinto, describes: “We value the dependability of the ABB robots in harsh settings as well as the excellent adaptability of the shows, especially during deburring. On top of that, ABB was able to rack up with our various other needs and also with the rate.” The business behind Inacore have extensive experience with robotics for core making and also casting; Laempe and also Scheuchl apply ABB robots for consumers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production utilizing robots. Along with ABB, Laempe mounted the very first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Service Provider. For years, Scheuchl has relied on robots for spreading manufacturing and raw casting machining. Throughout the new installation for Inacore, the assembly group and also the developers from Laempe and also Scheuchl offered all services for the implementation of the ABB robots.
A financially practical remedy.
Inacore think that automation remedies with robots are the best approach to produce with high reproducibility as well as quality. “We accomplish much shorter cycle times as well as reduced employees demands and can therefore reduce costs,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Taking Care Of Director of Inacore as well as Scheuchl. “From a service point of view, ABB robotics are favored for their reduced general as well as application expenses. Additionally, the robot eliminates staff members of literally hefty, repetitive and hazardous jobs, hence boosting work-related safety and security”.
