ABB Capacity ™ for Paint is a service profile for automating and digitizing paint innovation and also paint lines. It makes it possible for car suppliers to control the paint procedure in several methods.
Today’s vehicle manufacturing is defined by short product life cycles as well as a plethora of models as well as variations, which are produced on usual assembly line with a high level of personalization. Body paint is one of the key procedures in the auto market to have a direct influence on the external look of an automobile. Automobile makers attach wonderful relevance to the high quality of the final product, and purchase one of the most contemporary paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Information analysis for optimized paint procedures
Within a paint cell with cutting edge conveyor as well as procedure innovation, unique paint robots take on different paint jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface and the succeeding application of overcoats and clear lacquers. An ideal interaction of all parts have to be accomplished in order to get the very best feasible paint outcome. The series of various body variants and shades likewise entails new demands for painting systems: smart programs can, as an example, established the specific paint criteria for the atomizer’s schedule, which is established by the color, the automobile design as well as the factory.
By keeping an eye on as well as evaluating the data from production processes as well as equipment, car manufacturers can currently design their paint systems much more effectively and thus increase performance. ABB supports its consumers via its innovation and its ABB Ability for Paint electronic portfolio, which allows them to optimize their painting processes, lower product and also power consumption, and also enhance completion outcomes of the painting process. The range of remedies becomes part of the whole cross-industry electronic know-how dropping under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud platform that connects gadgets, systems, solutions, and also solutions in order to raise efficiency, performance, performance as well as safety and security throughout the operational life process. ABB Ability ™ modern technology product or services are used in a wide range of industries, aiding to create considerable included value with digitalization as well as closed-loop remedies.
With ABB Capability for Paint, firms will achieve a first-run rate of practically 100 per cent with continual accessibility thanks to early mistake detection.
Adaptable machining approaches as needed.
Relying on the type of core, Inacore looks to 3 optional handling 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 then grabs the cores again and positions them on the removal shuttle. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the safety and security location of the cell and presents them to the driver for clearing right into the core racks and also for manual aesthetic examination. In the second operating mode, suitable for straightforward core contours, the elimination robot gets rid of the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are then transferred on the removal shuttle bus. In the third variation, the IRB 6700 eliminates the cores from the core box as well as puts them directly on the elimination shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring action.
MultiMove minimizes space needs and prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never operate the two deburring robots per cell independently, so this setup was the noticeable choice,” claims Rudolf Wintgens. “In production, every cubic centimeter of room matters. Because we just need one robot control device in the MultiMove, we minimize space needs and costs”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Leader values dependability.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Director of Inacore and also Laempe Mössner Sinto, clarifies: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robots in rough settings and the great versatility of the programs, specifically throughout deburring. On top of that, ABB was able to rack up with our other needs as well as additionally with the price.” The companies behind Inacore have extensive experience with robotics for core production as well as spreading; Laempe and also Scheuchl implement ABB robotics for customers worldwide. Laempe is a leader in the automation of sand core manufacturing making use of robots. Along with ABB, Laempe set up the first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Carrier. For many years, Scheuchl has actually counted on robotics for casting production and raw spreading machining. During the new installment for Inacore, the assembly team and the designers from Laempe as well as Scheuchl provided all services for the execution of the ABB robotics.
A financially feasible solution.
Inacore believe that automation options with robots are the best technique to generate with high reproducibility as well as top quality. “We accomplish shorter cycle times and also lower employees requirements and can therefore decrease expenses,” states Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Managing Director of Inacore and also Scheuchl. “From an organization point of view, ABB robots are favored for their low general as well as implementation prices. On top of that, the robot eliminates employees of physically hefty, repeated and also unsafe tasks, thus raising work safety and security”.
