Overview of Robotic Painting

The painting application is widely used in the automotive industry because robots are accurate and consistent, providing a high-quality finish. Therefore, they are frequently found in the car industry’s production line automation process. Furthermore, the manufacturing supply chain is beginning to introduce industrial robots into its processes.

In today’s competitive market, there is a need to remain competitive. Therefore, robots are helping manufacturers achieve their objectives. Click here for some robot statistics.

The automobile painting process is quite complex, hazardous, and harmful to health, with strenuous jobs. Therefore, when purchasing a paint robot, it is crucial to ensure that the robot is an explosion-proof robot arm.

Top 5 Types of Painting Robots

Top 5 robotic Painting

The most common models are the standard 6-axis robot, but for painting and coating in ATEX environments, there are various painting systems. However, we do not recommend any specific system because the choice of robot painting depends on the specific needs and requirements of the customer, as well as the extras and accessories required.

 TOP 5  commonly used robots in painting

Fanuc P-50iB

The FANUC P-50iB robot is versatile with high-speed performance. Hence, it is ideal for painting tasks, including automotive, plastic, and industrial painting, offering high-speed performance and accuracy.

The ABB IRB 5400 robot accurately applies paint to intricate surfaces with its six-axis configuration and advanced motion control. Hence, it is widely used in the automotive industry to handle large parts and achieve high-quality finishes.

The KUKA KR Agilus is a nimble, compact, high-speed robot designed for the quick application of paint on small to medium-sized parts. Industries such as electronics, consumer goods, and small-scale automotive painting use this robot.

The Yaskawa MPX is a precise and fast robot designed for automotive painting. Its sleek arm design delivers intricate paint patterns with exceptional accuracy, perfect for complex designs.

The Kawasaki RS007N is compact and ideal for small to medium-sized part painting in the electronics, plastics, and manufacturing sectors. Moreover, it delivers precise and quick performance.

Application requirements

It’s worth noting that these are just a few examples of painting robots, and there are many other models available from different manufacturers. The selection of a specific robot depends on the application requirements, such as the size and shape of the parts to be painted, the type of paint or coating used, and the desired level of precision and speed.

Features of Robotic Painting

All robots have certain features that differ from each other, and these features allow them to produce a high-quality finish when painting. This, in turn, enables the robot to paint any object with minimal waste.

For example, the cables and paint tubes of the robots are essential elements to consider when purchasing a robotic arm. All the cables can run through the wrist instead of outside, preventing them from getting painted. Similarly, the configuration of the paint robots maximizes efficiency, performance, and cleanliness. To achieve this, we provide wall-mounted or floor-mounted robots that allow users to make the best use of space in the production plant.

For Customised Automation Packages

Another feature that varies according to the robot brand is the painting software. Therefore, this feature is extremely important because it helps the robot to easily program complex painting trajectories, and it can also include 3D models.

Robot integrator for a robotic cell

“Always consult with a robot integrator. They can guide you on what other equipment to buy and where to get it. Spray robots require pressure regulators, a degree of freedom of the robot, an applicator, programming software for painting robots, and a color changer. The robot integrator will help you integrate the painting and process equipment. Robots require the painting process parameters with tracking systems for paint finishing consistency. For example, the user interface with process control systems to get an idea of the ROI and after-sales support. It is the whole automation package.
