Increased Efficiency and Quality

At PaintExpo 2012, the leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology, a new painting robot which produces high-quality results was presented for the first time. The robot has been specially designed for efficient processes and for painting components in the automotive sector and in other industries.
Larger working area and flexible movements
The arm of the new robot allows for a large working area and flexible movements. Large components, such as parts for wind turbines, and also complex components with a large number of cavities can be painted cleanly and efficiently, because the robot can easily be mounted on the ceiling or wall. The high axis speeds result in fast cycle times and rapid painting. The large load capacity of 15 kg enables all kinds of application and auxiliary devices to be used.
Fitting valves, motors and other components inside the J3 arm keeps hose lengths and response times to a mini-mum and reduces paint consumption. The robot’s precise movements, rapid reorientation and suitability for powder and high-voltage applications help to minimise overspray and paint usage. In addition, the new model is ideal for use in compact spray booths which have low air and energy consumption rates.
A number of tried-and-tested options allow the painting system to be brought into operation more quickly and to be fine-tuned easily. Examples include line tracking, drive motors for dispensing pumps, automatic colour change sys-tems, spray pattern and parameter monitoring using analogue signals, off-line programming and optional rails (axis 7 or 8). The robot provides explosion protection in accordance with the CE standard and is certified according to ATEX Cat II 2 G and ATEX Cat II 2 D, together with North American standards (Class I, II, III).
