Robots offer flexibility and repeatability with constant quality without operators experiencing fatirue. A robot can also handle products in a repetitive manner in environments that are hazardous to human employees.
In powder coating production facilities not only are the products at high temperatures they also need to be dipped into hazardous substances for a set time and in a set pattern.
This was an ideal application for the More Control robot integration team to work with a leading manufacture to develop a solution to give precise process control of the oven and cooling section of the powder coating facility.
More Control used the latest Yaskawa robots integrated with vision inspection. The whole system is controlled by the latest motion controller and made safe using an Omron distributed safety system sitting on Ethercat.
