Painting – Automated program generation for painting robot
Increasingly individualized products and more flexible production processes give rise to new challenges during the painting process. Conventionally generated and thus static robot programs consider neither the component’s actual geometry nor its position.
By contrast, our vision-based painting solution offers a fully automatically generated robot program for each workpiece in its specific position. Using our innovative 3D in-line digitalization permits automatic generation of a painting program, adjusted to the individual form and position of the workpiece. Thus, individuality and automation down to lot size 1 are not mutually exclusive.
Traditional programming of a painting robot needs way too much effort to process pieces efficiently, cost-effectively and perfectly. For most applications, therefore, pieces are still traditionally painted manually.
