ABB Capability ™ for Paint is a remedy portfolio for automating as well as digitizing paint technology and paint lines. It allows auto manufacturers to regulate the painting procedure in many ways.
Today’s automotive manufacturing is characterized by brief product life cycles as well as a multitude of versions as well as variants, which are made on typical assembly line with a high level of modification. Body painting is one of the key procedures in the automotive market to have a straight impact on the outside look of a car. Car producers affix fantastic importance to the top quality of the end product, and invest in one of the most modern-day paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Data evaluation for enhanced paint procedures
Within a paint cell with modern conveyor and process modern technology, special paint robotics handle various paint tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface and the succeeding application of topcoats and also clear lacquers. An ideal interplay of all parts must be achieved in order to get the most effective possible paint outcome. The series of various body variants and shades likewise entails new demands for painting systems: smart programs can, for instance, established the private paint specifications for the atomizer’s travel plan, which is figured out by the color, the vehicle design as well as the manufacturing facility.
By monitoring as well as examining the information from production procedures as well as tools, car manufacturers can now create their paint systems a lot more successfully and hence enhance performance. ABB sustains its consumers through its modern technology and its ABB Ability for Paint electronic profile, which allows them to enhance their paint procedures, reduce product as well as power consumption, and also improve completion results of the painting process. The variety of services is part of the whole cross-industry digital competence dropping under the umbrella of ABB Capacity ™. This includes an open, interoperable cloud system that attaches gadgets, systems, solutions, as well as services in order to boost performance, efficiency, effectiveness as well as security throughout the functional life cycle. ABB Capacity ™ innovation products and services are utilized in a wide range of sectors, helping to develop substantial included worth through digitalization and closed-loop solutions.
With ABB Capability for Paint, companies will certainly attain a first-run rate of virtually 100 percent with continual accessibility thanks to early fault discovery.
Versatile machining techniques as required.
Depending upon the kind of core, Inacore looks to 3 optional processing techniques after elimination: In the initial variation, the IRB 6700 places the cores on the deburring table on core certain assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 relocates the separating aircraft with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that picks up the cores once more as well as positions them on the elimination shuttle. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety and security area of the cell as well as presents them to the operator for clearing right into the core shelfs and for hands-on aesthetic assessment. In the second operating setting, appropriate for simple core contours, the removal robot removes the cores under a chain area for deburring. The cores are after that transferred on the removal shuttle bus. In the third variation, the IRB 6700 removes the cores from the core box and also positions them directly on the elimination shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove minimizes room demands as well as prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will certainly never ever operate the two deburring robotics per cell individually, so this configuration was the apparent selection,” states Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of area matters. Since we just need one robotic control system in the MultiMove, we reduce area needs as well as prices”.
Paint Technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader appreciates dependability.
Andreas Mössner, Taking Care Of Director of Inacore as well as Laempe Mössner Sinto, clarifies: “We value the reliability of the ABB robots in extreme settings and the excellent adaptability of the programs, specifically during deburring. In addition, ABB was able to rack up with our various other needs as well as likewise with the cost.” The firms behind Inacore have extensive experience with robotics for core making and casting; Laempe and Scheuchl apply ABB robots for consumers worldwide. Laempe is a leader in the automation of sand core manufacturing utilizing robots. Along with ABB, Laempe mounted the initial robotic in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Carrier. For years, Scheuchl has actually relied upon robots for spreading production as well as raw casting machining. Throughout the new setup for Inacore, the assembly group and the programmers from Laempe as well as Scheuchl gave all solutions for the implementation of the ABB robots.
A financially sensible service.
Inacore believe that automation solutions with robotics are the most effective technique to produce with high reproducibility and also quality. “We accomplish much shorter cycle times and lower employees demands and also can thus minimize expenses,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Taking Care Of Director of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From an organization viewpoint, ABB robots are preferred for their low overall as well as execution expenses. Furthermore, the robot eliminates workers of physically heavy, repeated as well as dangerous tasks, thus boosting work-related safety and security”.
