Existing Challenges in Spraying Automation 

Manufacturers dealing with spraying processes, such as sandblasting, thermal spraying, shot peening, painting, and coating, often encounter several limitations and struggles with conventional robot programming:

  • Complex Geometry

    Spraying applications are frequently utilized on complex and irregular surfaces, making traditional robot programming a challenging and time-consuming task. Writing and refining the code to accommodate the diverse variations in surfaces and shapes demand specialized expertise and significant man-hours. Furthermore, conventional automation encounters difficulties in adapting to changes and faces precision issues, restricting its effectiveness in such scenarios.

  • Difficulty in Handling Variability/Deviations 

    Manufacturing environments often have variations and deviations in part geometry, material properties, and surface conditions. Conventional programming may struggle to handle these variations effectively, leading to inconsistent results.

  • High Mix Automation 

    Companies often look for ways to do High Mix or small run batches, and they require frequent and new configurations and programming. Whenever a change in the spraying process is required, robots need to be taken offline for reprogramming. This can impact production efficiency and increase overall lead times.

  • 5 days 

    Is the average downtime needed for robot programming 

  • >70%  

    Of lifetime cost of using robots is software and programming-related 

Augmentus Advantage

Whether dealing with high-mix or complex surfaces, Augmentus' scan to spray robotics empowers you to seamlessly automate your manufacturing processes, drastically reducing production time from days to mere minutes.

  • 01 3D Scanning for Large & Complex Shapes

    Our advanced 3D scanning technology accurately captures detailed surface geometries, ensuring precise and uniform spraying for intricate designs and oversized components.

  • 02 Automated Robot Spray Path Generation

    The system automatically generates optimal spray paths using sophisticated algorithms, minimizing setup time and reducing human error for consistent, high-quality spray.

  • 03 Part-to-Part Deviation Compensation

    Adjustment of robot movements based on detected deviations ensures uniform treatment and high-quality results, even with slight variations in part dimensions or positioning.

  • 04 Conveyor Tracking

    Integration with conveyor systems allows the robot to synchronize its movements with moving parts, enhancing productivity and throughput in continuous production environments.

  • 05 Synchronous Motion with External Axes

    Synchronized motion with external axes, such as rotating tables or linear tracks, expands the robot’s range and accessibility, enabling thorough spraying of complex geometries.

  • 06 Part Identification

    Using advanced vision systems, the robot can automatically recognize different parts and adjust spraying parameters accordingly. This is particularly beneficial for high mix manufacturing, increasing efficiency and ensuring tailored treatment for each part, enhancing consistency and quality.
