To master a process takes years. It requires a detailed understanding of materials, application equipment and process parameters to put together a good system and make it work.
Simply put, painting involves atomizing paintable materials and spraying them with an air spray applicator (low-pressure and low-viscosity fluid system) or an airless applicator (high-pressure and high-viscosity fluid system). The recommended application is normally defined in the technical data sheet for the paint that also specifies other parameters such as paint path, film build, paint conditions, two component mix ratio, incubation time etc. Our process engineers have the expertise to choose the applicable fluid system and develop the right spray pattern and robot path to paint your parts according to your quality specifications.
Our process engineering services includes:
- Paint process and program development and optimization.
- Powder coating process and program development and optimization
- Dispense process (e.g. sealer or LASD) process and program development and optimization.
- Vision system design, setup and programming.
- PLC and HMI design, setup and programming.
How to use robot simulation
The basic idea behind a robot simulation is to build a layout of a robot cell, which includes CAD models of all its mechanical components, such as robots, tools, parts, conveyors, etc. What makes robotn you configure the robot, Tool-Center-Point TCP and animate moving parts in the system after which the robot simulation can be used to develop path programs. As long as the robot simulation is calibrated to the physical robot system, the path should drop into the robot with minimum touchup.
