Medium-Sized Paint Robot

"IRB 5510 FlexPainter is a highly flexible and accurate medium-sized paint robot for automotive small parts and general industrial painting," said an ABB Robotics spokesperson. "This robot is designed to provide a shorter cycle time, process optimization and digital platform to ensure premium paint quality and uptime."

IRB 5510 offers the same advanced functions as IRB 5500 in a small form factor with a small footprint. The versatile IRB 5510 is aimed at small workpiece painting, flaming treatment and opener applications.

"The increased acceleration provided by including IRB 5500 drivers and schematics allows us to equip IRB 5510 with advanced functions such as StayOn, as done successfully with IRB 5500. This robot also provides a shorter cycle time, process optimization, and path control to ensure premium paint quality," said the spokesperson.

This functionality is crucial for industries where cycle time is essential to productivity, such as automotive small parts and general industry (GI) customers. To address the needs of GI customers, IRB 5510 is designed for ease of use, streamlined manipulator maintenance, simplified software support, reduced operational costs and increased spare parts availability.

IRB 5510 is equipped with ABB's hollow wrist technology. This high-precision hollow wrist features a straight design that eliminates wear and tear on the paint- and air-supply hoses, increasing overall reliability.

"The wrist supports 140° rotation in any direction, making IRB 5510 one of the most versatile and easy-to-program paint robots in its class," said the spokesperson.

IRB 5510 also features ABB's unique Integrated Process System (IPS) with closed-loop regulation capabilities and high-speed paint and airflow control. The IPS can increase process response times and reduce paint and solvent waste. Synchronizing the flow of paint with the motion of the robot arm improves transfer efficiency and minimizes overspray, thereby reducing paint wastage and increasing cost efficiency.
