ABB Capacity ™ for Paint is an option profile for automating and digitizing paint innovation and paint lines. It allows automobile makers to control the painting process in lots of means.
Today’s auto manufacturing is defined by brief item life cycles along with a multitude of versions and variants, which are produced on usual assembly line with a high degree of personalization. Body painting is among the essential processes in the automotive market to have a direct impact on the exterior appearance of a vehicle. Car suppliers attach great value to the high quality of the final product, and also purchase one of the most modern-day paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Data analysis for enhanced painting processes
Within a paint cell with cutting edge conveyor and process technology, special paint robots handle different painting jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface as well as the subsequent application of topcoats and also clear lacquers. An ideal interplay of all elements need to be achieved in order to obtain the very best feasible paint outcome. The variety of various body versions as well as colors additionally entails brand-new needs for painting systems: intelligent programs can, for instance, established the private paint criteria for the atomizer’s itinerary, which is established by the shade, the car model as well as the factory.
By keeping track of as well as evaluating the information from manufacturing procedures and tools, automobile makers can currently design their paint systems much more successfully as well as therefore boost productivity. ABB supports its clients through its technology and also its ABB Ability for Paint digital profile, which permits them to enhance their painting processes, minimize material as well as energy intake, and also enhance completion results of the painting procedure. The variety of options becomes part of the entire cross-industry digital proficiency dropping under the umbrella of ABB Capacity ™. This includes an open, interoperable cloud platform that connects tools, systems, remedies, and solutions in order to boost efficiency, efficiency, performance as well as protection throughout the operational life cycle. ABB Capacity ™ modern technology products and services are made use of in a large range of sectors, aiding to develop substantial included value through digitalization as well as closed-loop services.
With ABB Capacity for Paint, companies will certainly achieve a first-run price of practically 100 percent with continuous accessibility thanks to very early mistake detection.
Versatile machining techniques as needed.
Depending on the kind of core, Inacore turns to three optional processing methods after elimination: In the very first version, the IRB 6700 areas the cores on the deburring table on core specific support pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the dividing airplane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 then grabs the cores again and positions them on the removal shuttle bus. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety area of the cell as well as presents them to the driver for clearing right into the core shelfs and also for hands-on aesthetic assessment. In the 2nd operating mode, ideal for simple core contours, the elimination robotic gets rid of the cores under a chain area for deburring. The cores are after that transferred on the removal shuttle bus. In the 3rd version, the IRB 6700 gets rid of the cores from the core box and puts them directly on the removal shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring action.
MultiMove decreases space needs and expenses.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never ever operate both deburring robots per cell separately, so this setup was the evident option,” states Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of room counts. Because we only require one robotic control system in the MultiMove, we decrease area needs and also prices”.
Paint Technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader appreciates integrity.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Supervisor of Inacore and Laempe Mössner Sinto, describes: “We appreciate the integrity of the ABB robots in severe environments and the good adaptability of the shows, specifically throughout deburring. In addition, ABB was able to rack up with our other needs and additionally with the cost.” The business behind Inacore have comprehensive experience with robots for core making and also casting; Laempe and Scheuchl carry out ABB robotics for consumers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production making use of robotics. Along with ABB, Laempe mounted the initial robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Carrier. For several years, Scheuchl has actually depended on robots for spreading manufacturing and raw spreading machining. Throughout the brand-new setup for Inacore, the assembly team as well as the developers from Laempe and also Scheuchl provided all services for the execution of the ABB robotics.
An economically feasible remedy.
Inacore think that automation solutions with robotics are the best method to generate with high reproducibility and also quality. “We attain much shorter cycle times and also reduced workers needs as well as can therefore decrease expenses,” states Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Handling Director of Inacore as well as Scheuchl. “From a business viewpoint, ABB robotics are favored for their low general and also execution prices. Additionally, the robotic alleviates workers of literally hefty, repetitive and unsafe tasks, thus boosting job-related safety and security”.
