Abstract (en)

The paint supply system for a coating assembly, especially the paint shop for mass produced vehicle bodywork components, has a turntable (10). At least two filled paint containers (A,B) are connected selectively to a spray unit (5), carried from a supply point (23) to a transfer point (8). A take-off point (7) at the transfer station (8) gives the spray unit (5) a linear movement. The directions of the linear movements of both paint containers (A, B) between the transfer points and the take-off (7) forms an angle between them through their path intersection so that, when a container is taken, it is replaced immediately with a full container. The turntable (10) is mounted to a paint robot along a movement axis, to be carried with it. The system is operated by a self-learning control.

Abstract (de)

Ein Farbversorgungssystem für eine Beschichtungsanlage hat eine Transportvorrichtung beispielsweise in Form eines Drehtisches (10), mit dem mindestens zwei mit Beschichtungsmaterial füllbare, auswechselbar mit einer Sprühvorrichtung (5) verbindbare Behälter (A,B) von einer Versorgungsstelle (23) zu einer Übergabestelle (8) transportiert werden, von wo sie in Linearbewegungen einer Entnahmestelle (7) der Sprühvorrichtung (5) zugeführt werden. Die Bewegungsrichtungen der Linearbewegungen der beiden Behälter (A,B) zwischen den jeweiligen Übergabestellen und der Materialentnahmestelle (7) bilden miteinander einen Winkel und schneiden einander an der Materialentnahmestelle, so daß nach dem Herausnehmen des einen Behälters sofort ein bereitgestellter voller Behälter eingesetzt werden kann. Die Transportvorrichtung (10) ist vorzugsweise fest mit einem längs einer Mitfahrachse verfahrbaren Lackierroboter verbunden und mit diesem mitfahrbar. <IMAGE>
