The most common form of industrial painting requires use of skilled labors. Moreover, it is a large-scale process that demands high levels of safety measures and protective gears and is prone to several errors that wastes resources in form of raw material, money, and time. However, automation of painting process is a boon to manufacturers. Paint process automation uses painting robots that are highly sophisticated for large-scale manufacturing operations. It is a customized automation that enhances efficiency, precision, safety, and programmability.
According to industry experts, paint process automation is a long-term investment and one of the important tools of increased efficiency. One of the major advantages offered is time, while other is uniformity. It can be used with paints as well as powder coatings. Intelligence and flexibility of robots allow it to manipulate flow rate, reduce wastage, and over-spray, as well as better reach into corners and other small details. Repeatability of automated spraying is paramount; once a robot is programmed, it coats millions of parts without variation. Standard paint savings when using robots as opposed to manual painters is 15–30%. These benefits propel growth of the position of paint process automation in various industry verticals.
