Venjakob VEN MOVE ROBOT
While many process specifications begin with film build or cure times, every efficient paint line ultimately relies on proper material handling as well.
Parts need to be loaded, unloaded and transferred from one process to the next. Material handling directly affects the production rate, but also can have a dramatic impact on quality, downtime, scrap and transfer efficiency.
Venjakob offers a wide range of material handling capabilities ranging from simple manual systems, to fully-automated "hands-free" operation. Venjakob/Nutro can custom design automated load, unload and transfer mechanisms or integrate material handling robots into the paint line.
Material handling robots outfitted with machine vision can automatically identify each part style, load the part onto the line and send recipe information to the system controller. Similarly, automated unloading can remove painted parts and load them into boxes or pallets for shipment.
Within the paint line itself, robots can transfer painted parts to a separate curing system conveyor to avoid curing over-spray.
All of the options help reduce labor, downtime, training, and accidents freeing personnel for more demanding tasks. Material handling robots are ideal for either dedicated parts or where part styles vary from one part to the next. A wide range of robot models from top suppliers such as Fanuc, ABB, Motoman and others accommodate parts of nearly every size and weight.
