Jun. 22, 2017 – Dürr and Kuka have joined forces to develop an integrated robotic solution for automated paint application.
While the robot comes from Kuka, Dürr provides the paint application technology. Pre-installed and ready-to-spray, the EcoRP 10 R1100 robot contains fully compatible, and is suited for wood, plastics, glass and metal painting. The robot will be introduced to the North American market at the AWFS Trade Show in Las Vegas this July and at the FABTECH Trade Show in Chicago in November.
The system consists of a small six-axis robot equipped with paint application technology that is available in different configurations, allowing it to be tailored to individual customer project. The ready2spray robot enables the application of solvent- and water-based one- and two-component paints. It can be equipped with matching dosing pumps, paint pressure regulators and colour changers. Depending on the requirements, it comes with automated spray guns (air-atomizing or airless) from the EcoGun range or with electrostatic high-speed rotating atomizers from theEcoBell range, both by Dürr. Furthermore, the new painting system is fully Industry 4.0-ready.
