Adding a Fanuc robot to our team

Some new exciting things happing at Emerald Coatings. We just brought on a new work horse to our team, a Fanuc Robot. Over the next few weeks we will be working on setting it up to do everything from painting, activating, dipping, polishing and even taking cool Promo video of products. We figure this will be a great way to run controlled trials with paints, guns, activators, films and much much more.

    Couldn't resist, had to make a video of its first job.
    Attached an action camera to the end of the robot to collect some cool video clips of a new paint gun we are about to release.
    More videos to come

    Awesome. I may have questions for you at some point. This is still a possibility in my shop. For now we opted for auto activation and a dip arm, but no parts have needed rolled yet. Very, very cool guys!!

    Awesome guys! My former employer bought one exclusively for clear coat, they DEFINITELY increase the output and repeat-ability. Great way to take the human variable out of your testing.

    I have logged alot of hours on disassembly, and a few on programming and it looks like you already have a good start to automation going.

    .... My former employer bought one exclusively for clear coat, they DEFIANTLY increase the output and repeat-ability.....

    Defiantly? That's getting into artificial intelligence.... Maybe I don't want one. I don't need more defiant employees :lol:

    Ask away if you ever have any questions. I have been programing/working with all kinds of paint robots for 10+ years on a daily basis. I have been wanting my own for awhile now. I just got lucky and stumbled across a used one at the right time.

    I have a guy that programmed my automation that is trained in Fanuc and Kuka (?). He was an electrical engineer for GM for many years. Smart fella. I basically design/build the mechanics of what I want and explain to him what I want it to do. Good resource to have! Lol
