The Ability Connected Atomizer allows automakers to optimize painting quality in real time, rather than following a quality inspection after painting is completed. The paint shop is one of the most expensive parts of automotive manufacturing, with costly raw materials and high energy consumption. Undercoat, paint, or sealant errors can be especially costly and are often only discovered during
The Connected Atomizer increases paint transfer efficiency and
Connecting the sensor-equipped atomizer to the ABB Ability digital offering allows real-time, smart diagnostics, and precise paint control. By monitoring the condition of key atomizer components such as bell cups, air motors, and the shaping air ring, as well as variables such as acceleration, pressure, vibration, and temperature, paint transfer efficiency is boosted by up to 10% while the paint is being applied.
