ABB , the leading power and automation technology group has unveiled that another milestone in the traditional history of ABB’s factory at Bryne in Norway was reached with the presentation of the FlexPainter IRB 5500 robot and a new generation of rotary atomisers.
This combination of cutting edge ABB technology is great news for the automotive industry. This will paint a car body faster than today’s industrial standard, while maintaining a high level of quality and reducing paint losses to a minimum.
The new robot is a result of ABB’s vast experience with deliveries to demanding automation projects all over the world, combined with a continuous focus on research and development to meet the customer’s ever more stringent demands.
The robot is designed for tighter installations. Less spray booth space is needed on the production line, while customers can maintain production volumes and quality with fewer painting robots and associated equipment.
The IRB 5500 is a tailor-made painting solution for the automotive industry.
- With its fast acceleration and unique design, ABB has pushed back the boundaries of auto body painting technology. The FlexPainter is cost cutting in practice.
- ABB is the world leading supplier of paint automation, with more than 10,000 painting robots delivered world wide.
- ABB’s paint robots live up to its vision of making its customers more effective, while at the same time, lowering the impact on the environment. ABB has the right products at the right time, with new technology, and that is exactly what the industry wants.
