Manual processes are a thing of the past:
increased productivity thanks to automation
Peak Contracts Ltd offers the general industry electrical and mechanical engineering solutions, ranging from modifications of existing plants and processes to the complete design and installation of a new plant. This includes paint finishing systems, air handling systems and electrical control systems, but also project and site management, and service and maintenance.
Dual robotic spray system
For one of our valued customers, Peak Contracts Ltd was requested to design a system to automate a continuous adhesive application process line. This would entail supplying a dual robotic spray system for two-component water-based sprayable adhesives for automotive interior trim components. The challenge was to set up and pre-program the two robots with two different premixed two-component water-based adhesives and spray onto many various products in the same production line.
Peak Contracts Ltd designed the robotic system with our own PLC/graphic user interface and integrated Graco fluid supply and spray equipment. Peak used two AirPro automatic spray guns, three pressure feed containers and two air operated fluid regulators in the system. The complete robotic and supply system was modular built and tested offline and then installed into the production line by the Peak Contracts Ltd in house team of Engineers.
Simple to use and customise to you needs
The dual robotic spray system is simple to operate using the Graco stainless steel pressure tanks, which stand on weight sensors to give level indication on the graphic user interface of the manually mixed two-component adhesive. Air operated fluid regulators allow to adjust the flow rates to the spray gun during the spraying program. The AirPro spray guns provide very good atomisation and are easy to clean after use. The quick detachable gun mount allows easy maintenance of the spray guns when in production. After installation of the new robotic application system, the production throughput increased and the usage of adhesive reduced due to the automation of the manual process.
