ABB Capability ™ for Paint is a service portfolio for automating as well as digitizing paint innovation as well as paint lines. It enables auto suppliers to manage the painting process in several methods.
Today’s automobile manufacturing is identified by brief product life cycles as well as a plethora of designs and also variants, which are made on typical production lines with a high level of modification. Body painting is among the crucial processes in the vehicle sector to have a direct impact on the external appearance of an automobile. Automobile producers connect terrific significance to the high quality of the end product, as well as invest in the most modern paint lines for their factories.
Data analysis for optimized painting procedures
Within a paint cell with advanced conveyor as well as procedure technology, special paint robots tackle different paint jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface and also the succeeding application of topcoats as well as clear lacquers. An ideal interplay of all parts have to be attained in order to obtain the best feasible paint outcome. The range of various body variations and also shades also requires new requirements for painting systems: smart programs can, for instance, set the specific paint specifications for the atomizer’s plan, which is identified by the color, the car design and also the manufacturing facility.
By keeping track of and also evaluating the data from manufacturing processes and tools, auto producers can now make their painting systems a lot more efficiently as well as therefore boost performance. ABB supports its consumers with its modern technology and its ABB Capability for Paint digital portfolio, which enables them to maximize their painting procedures, decrease product as well as energy usage, and also boost completion results of the painting process. The variety of solutions belongs to the whole cross-industry electronic expertise dropping under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud system that connects tools, systems, remedies, and also services in order to increase efficiency, efficiency, efficiency as well as protection throughout the operational life cycle. ABB Capacity ™ modern technology product or services are used in a wide variety of markets, assisting to produce substantial included worth with digitalization and closed-loop options.
With ABB Capability for Paint, business will certainly achieve a first-run price of practically 100 per cent with continuous schedule thanks to very early fault discovery.
Versatile machining approaches as required.
Depending on the type of core, Inacore resorts to three optional processing techniques after elimination: In the initial variation, the IRB 6700 areas the cores on the deburring table on core particular support pallets. There, the IRB 1200 relocates the splitting airplane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that picks up the cores once more as well as puts them on the elimination shuttle bus. The shuttle takes the cores out of the security location of the cell and presents them to the operator for getting rid of right into the core racks and also for manual visual examination. In the 2nd operating mode, suitable for basic core contours, the removal robotic removes the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are then transferred on the elimination shuttle bus. In the 3rd version, the IRB 6700 removes the cores from the core box and also puts them straight on the removal shuttle without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove reduces area needs and expenses.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never operate the two deburring robotics per cell independently, so this arrangement was the evident option,” states Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of room counts. Since we only need one robotic control unit in the MultiMove, we minimize room requirements as well as costs”.
Paint Technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader appreciates reliability.
Andreas Mössner, Managing Supervisor of Inacore and Laempe Mössner Sinto, discusses: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robots in severe environments as well as the excellent versatility of the programming, specifically throughout deburring. In addition, ABB was able to score with our various other requirements as well as also with the price.” The companies behind Inacore have considerable experience with robotics for core production as well as spreading; Laempe and Scheuchl carry out ABB robots for clients worldwide. Laempe is a leader in the automation of sand core production utilizing robotics. Together with ABB, Laempe mounted the very first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Carrier. For several years, Scheuchl has depended on robots for casting manufacturing and raw spreading machining. Throughout the new setup for Inacore, the setting up team as well as the designers from Laempe and also Scheuchl provided all services for the implementation of the ABB robots.
An economically practical service.
Inacore believe that automation options with robots are the most effective approach to produce with high reproducibility and high quality. “We achieve much shorter cycle times and also lower workers demands as well as can hence minimize expenses,” states Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Handling Supervisor of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From a service perspective, ABB robots are preferred for their low general as well as application expenses. Furthermore, the robot alleviates workers of literally heavy, recurring as well as hazardous jobs, thus enhancing job-related safety and security”.
