ABB Robotics - Painting ABB's latest Compact Specialist Painting robot shows off its versatility
Riding an ABB IRB 6600 Robot 1 Back in the summer of 2006, we were using an ABB IRB 6600 robot (225 kg payload) for a project. In between the time that we took delivery of the robot, and the time that we finished the tooling for the robot, we purchased a racing seat and 5-point harness. Our welder fabricated a seat mount and adapter plate to the robot's J6 flange. Over the course of the next few evenings, we made various programs for the manipulator, swinging the seat wildly around and taking turns going for rides. One of the highlights of my career! Please don't try this in your own shop - the safety risk in doing something like this is obviously quite high, even with the soft and hard limits of the robot adjusted for maximum protection. Industrial robots are simply not suited for interaction like this with people! Only one company has produced such a robot - KUKA - and it's only through heavy modifications that the German technical safety authority (TUV) has certified it for carrying passengers.

ABB Robotics - Painting wind turbine rotor blades Enercon has installed two ABB robots in its new paint facilities in Aurich for painting rotor blades. This is the first installation of its kind, able to complete the entire finishing process on large dimension rotor components. Finishing consists of two layers: The first layer is the gel coat. . The ABB robots provides the exact amount of gel coat for the required thickness: Depending on the amount of stress on a particular area, thicknesses may vary between 0.3 mm where loads are light and 0.6 mm along the leading edge or so-called nose (part of blade in first contact with wind) where loads are particularly high. The second layer is an environmentally friendly water-based varnish. Colour schemes ranging from plain grey to diagonal red-white-red-grey stripes are fully automatically coordinated without having to stop the facility in-between. Paint and finishing robots require extremely sophisticated control systems. An even coat can only be obtained with smooth-flowing motions. This is achieved by using seven axis paint robots. The electronic control system not only coordinates the robots seven axes but at the same time monitors all the other technical parameters such as temperature, viscosity, spray pressure and the correct paint dosage, explains Torsten Link, ENERCONs expert for blade finishing. Enercon manufacture the world's largest turbine blades with rotor diameters of over 125 meters. The paint protects the blades against the weather conditions which they are ...

ABB Robotics - Picking and packing salami snacks High-speed ABB FlexPicker robots equipped with specially developed grippers are making sure that Peperami salamis are packaged at the highest cycle rates at Unilever's plant in Ansbach, Germany. The robots are fitted with triple grippers which are able to pick up three randomly positioned salami snacks one after the other from a conveyor belt in a one step process, and place them individually in a rollstock machine. The positioning and location data required comes from an upstream image processing system which is positioned to capture the information on the individual sausages and pass it on to a master computer. Unilever commissioned ABB Robotics partner, robomotion GmbH from Stuttgart, to plan and design the fully automated solution; and install and commission the entire system at Unilever within 10 days. "This high-speed technology is not only of interest in the foodstuffs sector, as it can be used anywhere where small items have to be handled at high speeds" says Andreas Wolf, a director of robomotion. Unilever's chief engineer, Carim Gad, concludes "With the new system, we're running the packaging machine at full capacity, giving us a performance increase of up to 25 percent compared with manual loading. The ability to cover peak loads is of particular interest. For example, in the run-up to the Football World Cup, special production shifts were operating at the weekend. This alone gave us a competitive edge, enabling us to deliver Peperamis to our customers on ...

ABB Robotics - Service Support & Remote Service ABB's Remote Service concept is aimed at extending the mean time between failure of robots and robotic components. It will shorten the subsequent mean time to repair and lower the overall cost of ownership of the robot unit. An additional beneficiary will be the environment, with fewer service related call outs, travelling and fuel costs involved. With Remote Service, the robot itself automatically alerts the central database. It triggers an SMS to the on-call service engineer, who can immediately access a detailed data and error log and quickly identify the exact fault. From that moment on, ABB can support the customer remotely (in 50 percent of cases, the robot can be brought back on line without any further intervention) or through direct access to the robot's control system. If parts need to be replaced, the replacement item can either be shipped from local stores or from one of the ABB central warehouses, and a service engineer can be quickly dispatched to fit the new part.

ABB Robotics - Assembly of electrical sockets When it comes to using robots to increase productivity, reduce costs & improve working conditions for employees ABB is happy to practice what it preaches. So when ABB Elektro-Praga decided to install a new production line for its "child-proof" dual-plug electrical safety socket at its factory in the Czech town of Jablonec, it chose a system that featured three robots purchased from ABB Robotics. "The small IRB 140 robot is ideal for this task. Although it's small, it is exceptionally fast, accurate and powerful -- it has one of the fastest cycle times of any articulated robot," confirms Petr Prade, Chief of Design at MMT, the system integrator that built & installed the new production line. Jana Dolková, who used to help assemble the sockets by hand before the advent of the robots, believes the new system is actually more "people friendly" than the one it replaced: "The sockets we are making contain fiddly components like screws and springs ... before, I almost had to squint to see them. This is a much healthier environment for me." "And of course," Dolková adds, "unlike humans, the robots leave no fingerprints!" At the moment, Elektro-Praga -- which specializes in low-voltage circuit breakers, switches, control products, wiring accessories and cable systems -- only employs the ABB robot system to turn out its "Tango" line of dual plug sockets. But in the near future, it plans to use it for several other variants. In fact, as it takes no more than 10 minutes to set up the ...
