ABB’s Integrated Process System (IPS), a closed loop process system, ensures that both the robot motion and paint process control are precisely coordinated to provide optimum quality.
For the basecoat application, the RB1000 is used in its cartridge bell system version providing the necessary isolation of the high voltage that is directly applied to the waterborne paint droplets. The system ensures that each paint cartridge is filled with precisely the required amount of paint, so that waste is always kept to a minimum.
A high performance solution
“The IRB 5500 robot, combined with RB1000 atomisers, presented the best way of meeting Aston Martin’s requirements,”
Low continues, “The addition of an ABB engineer, who stayed on site to help Aston Martin with the first three months of the project going live, provided extensive training to the production engineers as well as being on hand for technical support.”
