Robot solution for automated paint centre

08 July 2019

YASKAWA MOTOMAN’s expansion into new manufacturing applications is well demonstrated by its involvement in Peak Contracts’ state-of-the-art automated robotic painting technical centre in Derby in the UK.

The centre offers the flexibility of a full turnkey solution for those requiring either a new automated facility, or the ability to upgrade to a current manual or automatic installation and enables customers to apply both solvent- and water-based paints using Yaskawa Motoman’s painting robot and the Graco ProBell.

An important focus of the technical centre is its support of the full turnkey approach which includes painting robots, electrostatics, rotary atomisers, air guns, up to 3k auto mix, paint mix and supply, complete booths, conveyor systems, 3D programming, safety planning and ATEX. It can also be used to provide customer training in all aspects of automated painting, from mixing and paint supply, through to robot programming and maintenance. 

The engineers at Peak Contracts will work with 3D offline programming to understand the Yaskawa Motoman robot requirement in terms of reach and available cycle time. The 3D models which can be imported into Yaskawa MotoSim enable rapid reach studies and robot programming. This enables customers to choose from the wide range of Yaskawa robots to ensure the most suitable and cost-effective solution for each application.

The in-house design team will then be able to establish a booth design to house the required robots and equipment, together with the controls department to size and design any conveyor system of handling equipment required for the turnkey solution.
