Compact painting robot for industry
to add a compact painting robot from Dürr to its lab. This enables fully reproducible coating layer thicknesses in the µ range that are essential in the development of chrome-effect paint systems, for example.
The pre-installed, ready-to-paint robot from Dürr is a professional solution for automated paint application. With coordinated and tested components, it is tailored to the requirements of the general industry – a combination that makes it unique on the market. WB Coatings is the first paint manufacturer to use the “ready2spray” robot in the development of its new products. A new product applied with the robot is an chrome-effect paint that can be used, amongst others, for vehicle interiors. WB Coatings achieves this effect using paint systems consisting of one, two or three coating layers. “Without using a robot, we would not have been able to develop these new paint systems as a chrome-free alternative for shiny, silver-colored surfaces. The challenge is to apply the coating layers of the chrome-effect paint very evenly. And the three-layer paint system in particular needs very thin, reproducible coating layers of 2 to 3 µm. This is something even highly experienced hand painters can’t achieve,” explains Andreas Ohletz, Head of Sales for Innovations at WB Coatings.
