Motoman Robotics Coat Agricultural Trailers

Aug 9, 2013

A customer requested a robot that could apply powder coating and handle a variety of shapes, angles ,and sizes, and Motoman delivered with their coating robots. Motoman coating robots help to apply coating materials to work pieces in a variety of methods including gaseous coating, submersion coating, and powder coating.


Motoman coat­ing robots are able to apply coat­ing mate­ri­als to work pieces in dif­fer­ent ways, includ­ing gaseous coat­ing, sub­mer­sion coat­ing, and pow­der coat­ing. It was this last coat­ing process that a French com­pa­ny, Remorques Rol­land, need­ed for their agri­cul­tur­al dump­sters and trailers.

Accord­ing to Motoman, the French com­pa­ny had an increase in demand for their prod­ucts, and with this increased demand came an increase for high­er qual­i­ty dump­sters and trail­ers. The Remorques Rol­land need­ed the robot­ics com­pa­ny to come up with a Motoman robot­ic coater that could apply pow­der coat­ing and han­dle all pos­si­ble work piece shapes and angles.

Motoman was able to deliv­er on that request. The com­pa­ny pro­vid­ed the French with five Motoman PX coat­ing robots, which form the core of the Motoman robot­ic coat­ing sys­tem. Since the work pieces could be as long as 9 meters, up to 3 meters high and as wide as 2.5 meters, accord­ing to Motoman, these Motoman robot­ic coaters had to have max­i­mum flex­i­bil­i­ty so they could spray and coat every area of the work piece.

Four Motoman PX coat­ing robots coat at two dif­fer­ent lev­els, while the oth­er robot­ic coater takes care of the under­side of the work piece. They are equipped with two-stream pow­der guns with pow­der prepa­ra­tion. Parts are moved along on a chain con­vey­or to and from the Motoman robot­ic coaters.

This Motoman robot­ic coat­ing sys­tem has been oper­at­ing two shifts a day since its instal­la­tion. Motoman states that the sys­tem is extreme­ly flex­i­ble, ful­ly auto­mat­ed and pro­vides the com­pa­ny with high qual­i­ty, no mat­ter whether the piece being coat­ed is big or small.
