Motoman Robots Painting

Integrated vision systems identify individual weldments or part families presented on carriers on a moving overhead conveyor for spray painting by two Motoman PX2850 robots housed in separate paint booths that operate independently.Fabricated Weldments for Transportation

Robots automate spray painting process for over 70 different fabricated metal parts, providing consistent, high-quality painting and reducing paint usage and associated costs. Integrated vision systems identify products and families and automatically select the proper robot program. If no program is found for a particular part or group of parts, the robot spray paints using a generic robot program. Flexible system houses the two robots in separate spray booths that operate independently, allowing workers to manually spray paint parts, if needed. Parts travel through both spray booths to paint entire part. Robots are integrated with existing paint line equipment, including overhead conveyor that runs at 2.9-m (9.5') per minute, side draft spray paint booths, and paint delivery system.

Fixtures/Tooling Details

The customer provided the part carriers and redesigned the hooks (set at two different heights) to consistently present parts to the robots for painting. Large parts within carriers have individual ID tags or the carriers containing various small parts have an ID tag.
