ABB Ability ™ for Paint is an option profile for automating and also digitizing paint technology as well as paint lines. It enables auto manufacturers to manage the paint procedure in lots of methods.
Today’s vehicle manufacturing is characterized by short item life cycles as well as a multitude of designs and also variations, which are produced on common assembly line with a high degree of modification. Body painting is among the essential procedures in the auto industry to have a direct impact on the outside look of an automobile. Auto suppliers attach excellent significance 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 maximized painting processes
Within a paint cell with cutting edge conveyor and procedure technology, special paint robots handle numerous paint jobs, such as the homogenization of the surface and also the succeeding application of topcoats as well as clear lacquers. An optimum interaction of all parts have to be accomplished in order to get the most effective feasible paint outcome. The variety of different body variants and shades additionally entails brand-new demands for painting systems: smart programs can, as an example, established the individual paint criteria for the atomizer’s schedule, which is identified by the shade, the vehicle design and the manufacturing facility.
By keeping track of as well as analyzing the data from production processes as well as equipment, automobile makers can now design their painting systems a lot more effectively and thus enhance efficiency. ABB supports its consumers through its innovation as well as its ABB Ability for Paint digital profile, which permits them to enhance their paint processes, minimize material and power intake, as well as enhance the end results of the paint procedure. The range of remedies is part of the entire cross-industry digital know-how falling under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud platform that links devices, systems, remedies, and solutions in order to increase performance, performance, efficiency and also protection throughout the functional life process. ABB Ability ™ innovation services and products are used in a vast array of sectors, helping to develop considerable included worth via digitalization and also closed-loop solutions.
With ABB Capability for Paint, companies will attain a first-run rate of almost 100 per cent with constant schedule thanks to early fault detection.
Flexible machining techniques as needed.
Depending upon the type of core, Inacore counts on 3 optional handling approaches after elimination: In the initial version, the IRB 6700 areas the cores on the deburring table on core details assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the separating plane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 after that gets the cores once again as well as positions them on the elimination shuttle. The shuttle bus takes the cores out of the security area of the cell as well as offers them to the driver for getting rid of right into the core racks and for manual aesthetic inspection. In the second operating mode, appropriate for basic core shapes, the removal robotic eliminates the cores under a chain area for deburring. The cores are after that transferred on the elimination shuttle bus. In the 3rd variation, the IRB 6700 gets rid of the cores from the core box and puts them straight on the removal shuttle bus without an intermediate deburring action.
MultiMove decreases area demands as well as prices.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never ever run the two deburring robots per cell individually, so this setup was the noticeable option,” states Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of area counts. Because we just require one robot control system in the MultiMove, we reduce room demands and prices”.
Paint Modern technology 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer values integrity.
Andreas Mössner, Handling Director of Inacore as well as Laempe Mössner Sinto, explains: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robotics in rough settings and the great adaptability of the programming, specifically during deburring. Additionally, ABB had the ability to score with our various other requirements and likewise with the cost.” The companies behind Inacore have comprehensive experience with robots for core making as well as spreading; Laempe and Scheuchl execute ABB robots for customers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production utilizing robots. Together with ABB, Laempe mounted the first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Worth Service Provider. For years, Scheuchl has relied upon robots for casting production and also raw casting machining. During the new installment for Inacore, the setting up team as well as the developers from Laempe and Scheuchl provided all services for the execution of the ABB robotics.
A financially sensible solution.
Inacore believe that automation services with robots are the most effective method to produce with high reproducibility and top quality. “We attain much shorter cycle times and lower workers requirements and also can therefore reduce costs,” states Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Taking Care Of Director of Inacore and Scheuchl. “From a business viewpoint, ABB robotics are favored for their low overall as well as implementation expenses. In addition, the robot soothes staff members of literally hefty, repetitive as well as hazardous jobs, thus increasing occupational safety”.
