Robots and paint lines are the #4 leading source of paint defects. Fabric covers require constant cleaning and are expensive to replace; yet are the leading source of fiber paint defects. Moreover, the highly articulated movements stress the elasticity of fabric covers and easily dislodge dried paint overspray particles.
painting aggravates the situation as overspray migrates to the
electrostatically charged robot, rather than migrating to treatment system
covers protect the robot’s mechanics and provide easy visual inspection. They reduce the overspray’s electrostatic
attraction to the robot thus reducing overspray buildup. The cover’s elongation matches that of the
paint overspray so that it does not “knock” off during movements. The multi-sectional covers allow rapid and
frequent replacement of heavy overspray zones without the time or expense of
replacing the entire set.
