ABB Ability ™ for Paint is an option profile for automating as well as digitizing paint innovation and also paint lines. It allows automobile manufacturers to manage the paint process in lots of means.
Today’s automotive production is identified by short product life cycles along with a plethora of designs as well as variants, which are manufactured on typical assembly line with a high degree of customization. Body paint is among the vital procedures in the vehicle sector to have a straight influence on the external look of a lorry. Automobile manufacturers connect great importance to the quality of the end product, as well as buy the most modern-day paint lines for their manufacturing facilities.
Information evaluation for optimized painting processes
Within a paint cell with modern conveyor and procedure technology, unique paint robotics tackle numerous paint tasks, such as the homogenization of the surface as well as the subsequent application of overcoats as well as clear lacquers. An optimum interplay of all parts should be attained in order to get the best feasible paint result. The series of various body versions and also colors likewise requires new requirements for paint systems: intelligent programs can, as an example, established the individual paint specifications for the atomizer’s travel plan, which is figured out by the shade, the vehicle version and the manufacturing facility.
By checking and also assessing the information from production procedures as well as tools, auto producers can currently create their painting systems a lot more effectively as well as hence enhance productivity. ABB sustains its customers with its modern technology and also its ABB Capacity for Paint digital portfolio, which enables them to maximize their painting procedures, reduce material and energy usage, as well as boost completion results of the paint procedure. The series of remedies becomes part of the entire cross-industry electronic proficiency dropping under the umbrella of ABB Ability ™. This consists of an open, interoperable cloud system that links gadgets, systems, remedies, and also solutions in order to raise performance, productivity, performance as well as safety and security throughout the operational life cycle. ABB Ability ™ technology products and services are used in a vast array of markets, assisting to produce significant added worth with digitalization and closed-loop remedies.
With ABB Ability for Paint, business will certainly accomplish a first-run price of virtually 100 per cent with continual accessibility thanks to very early fault detection.
Adaptable machining approaches as needed.
Depending upon the type of core, Inacore turns to three optional handling techniques after elimination: In the very first variation, the IRB 6700 locations the cores on the deburring table on core certain assistance pallets. There, the IRB 1200 moves the splitting airplane with a steel needle for deburring. The IRB 6700 then grabs the cores once again and also places them on the removal shuttle. The shuttle takes the cores out of the safety area of the cell and provides them to the operator for getting rid of right into the core racks and also for hand-operated aesthetic evaluation. In the second operating mode, suitable for easy core contours, the elimination robot removes the cores under a chain field for deburring. The cores are after that deposited on the removal shuttle bus. In the 3rd variation, the IRB 6700 gets rid of the cores from the core box and puts them directly on the elimination shuttle without an intermediate deburring step.
MultiMove decreases room requirements and costs.
The IRB 1200 controls Inacore with MultiMove. “We will never ever run both deburring robotics per cell independently, so this setup was the obvious selection,” claims Rudolf Wintgens. “In manufacturing, every cubic centimeter of space counts. Because we just need one robotic control system in the MultiMove, we reduce room demands and also prices”.
Paint Innovation 4.0 optimization.
Pioneer appreciates integrity.
Andreas Mössner, Managing Director of Inacore as well as Laempe Mössner Sinto, discusses: “We appreciate the reliability of the ABB robotics in rough settings as well as the great adaptability of the programs, particularly during deburring. On top of that, ABB had the ability to rack up with our other demands and additionally with the price.” The business behind Inacore have substantial experience with robotics for core production and casting; Laempe and also Scheuchl implement ABB robotics for consumers worldwide. Laempe is a pioneer in the automation of sand core production making use of robotics. Along with ABB, Laempe set up the first robot in a core-making application back in 1996.
Laempe is an ABB Authorized Value Service Provider. For many years, Scheuchl has actually relied upon robotics for casting production and also raw spreading machining. Throughout the brand-new installment for Inacore, the setting up group and also the developers from Laempe and also Scheuchl provided all solutions for the implementation of the ABB robots.
An economically feasible solution.
Inacore believe that automation remedies with robotics are the most effective method to produce with high reproducibility as well as quality. “We accomplish much shorter cycle times and also lower workers requirements and also can hence decrease prices,” claims Dr. Udo Dinglreiter, Handling Supervisor of Inacore as well as Scheuchl. “From a business point of view, ABB robots are preferred for their low overall as well as implementation costs. Additionally, the robot soothes staff members of literally hefty, recurring and unsafe tasks, thus enhancing job-related safety and security”.
