STRUGGLING WITH PRODUCTION CAPACITY?

IMPROVEMENT OF 32% IN BLASTING TIME WITH OFFLINE PROGRAMS

Blasting chamber in reality and modeled into offline software

 

Blastman B20 robot was installed in 2009 as part of new surface treatment line for winter maintenance machines at Aebi Schmidt Nederland B.V. Through the years robot has had a pivotal role in production.

8 years after installation production needs were expanding still. We started looking for solutions to increase blasting capacity without facility investments.

Solution, optimizing of automated programs. Traditionally older robots have been programmed with Blastman hand panel, now we looked to synergize the older equipment into our new offline software. Offline software allows the generating of movement paths for the robot via computer software.

     SUCCESS WITH OFFLINE PROGRAMS:

  • Improvement of 32% in total blasting time!
  • Zero production downtime caused by programming in chamber with hand panel.
  • 100% coverage with new programs.
  • No need for manual touch-up blasting.

“Very positive results.” - B. Leferink, CI Coordinator - Aebi Schmidt, 2017
