Fully integrated robotic solution
ABB’s next generation robotic Cartridge Bell Paint System
Product description and solution
A mainstay of the automotive industry for exterior car body painting and the application of base coats, ABB first introduced its robotics Cartridge Bell Paint System in 1998.
Made from cast and machined aluminum, the company’s latest innovation, the Compact CBS II, is the only fully-integrated robotic solution for internal charge water-borne painting. The lighter, faster and more efficient design is more closely integrated with the system’s components and reduces color exchange time by as much as 50 percent when compared with other solutions.
The global standard for internal charge water-borne applications, the Compact CBS II is a cost effective and environmentally friendly solution.
ABB has upgraded its Cartridge Bell Paint system to include servo motors that run train circuit for precise angular positioning and process control. The Compact CBS II also has been outfitted with two DCUs for precession filling and dosing of paint material from the paint cartridge. These new drives are designed to easily integrate into existing installations while eliminating the need for flow meter.
Product features and benefits
DCL (Delivery control liquid) volume accurately measured during filling cycle. Inclusion of two delivery control units (DCUs) eliminates the need for a flow meter for more accurate filling and less paint loss
Designed to fill the actual cartridge with controlled speeds and pressures to prevent unwanted effects on the waterborne material
Once filled, the cartridge exchange is done in less than 10 sec
