Flexible Painting with ABB Robotics

Aug 5, 2014

ABB painting robots are the perfect way to save a manufacturer time and money. There are a variety of ABB robots available to help provide a wide range of options for manufacturers. These robots by ABB can all move faster, work harder, and provide greater accuracy on the painting production line.


Robot­ic paint­ing is prob­a­bly one of the eas­i­est ways for a man­u­fac­tur­er to save mon­ey, and it is also one of the old­est robot­ic appli­ca­tions around. Com­pa­nies like ABB Robot­ics have been design­ing flex­i­ble paint­ing robots for decades, and their designs just keep get­ting faster and more agile as the years go by.

ABB Robot­ics has sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ic paint­ing sys­tems, and one of the new­er mod­els is the Flex­Painter IRB 5500 – an exte­ri­or paint­ing robot with the largest and most flex­i­ble work enve­lope on the mar­ket today, accord­ing to ABB. Man­u­fac­tur­ers have always been able to save mon­ey with paint­ing robots because they work at a speed much faster than their human coun­ter­parts. But this flex­i­ble paint­ing robot from ABB is able to work faster than the oth­er robot­ic mod­els – two Flex­Painters can take the place of four old­er mod­el paint­ing robots.

Because of the speed and agili­ty of the Flex­Painter robot from ABB, there is also a faster return on invest­ment for man­u­fac­tur­ers. Instead of wait­ing for the return on invest­ment for four robots, they can turn over an invest­ment on two robots, which means that the robots will pay for them­selves at a quick­er rate. Like oth­er paint­ing robots from ABB, these robots also improve the paint­ing process in oth­er ways. They do not use as much paint, which means that there is less waste dur­ing an appli­ca­tion cycle, and that saves mon­ey on mate­ri­als, as well as being bet­ter for the envi­ron­ment – a win-win sit­u­a­tion for manufacturers.
