A cable-pass-through seal from Roxtec Inc. of Tulsa, Okla., keeps paint from gumming up the works inside spray-painting robots. The Roxtec RG M63/4 cablesealing system keeps paint spray out of Fanuc Robotics spray-painting robots. The M63 modular system consists of peel-away layers that accommodate any size wire or cable. of Tulsa, Okla., keeps paint from gumming up the works inside spray-painting robots. Electric sparks in misty spray-paint booths have been known to cause explosions. And wet paint can bollix up encoders, electric motors, and bearings. That's why the Robotic Paint Shop Automation Div. Rochester Hills, Mich., wanted to keep the inside of its robots paint-free despite the numerous holes where wires enter or exit the robot and spray booth. Standard cord grips with gasket seals originally plugged the holes but caused problems. Installers had to remove connectors to slide the grip onto the cable, snake the cable through the booth penetration plate, and then slip the nut over the cable to fasten the grip. In some cases installers enlarged the cable jacket to fit the grip by applying multiple layers of shrink-wrap. This often damaged connectors and disconnected wires. Cables enter the robot through a purge chamber. Positive pressure in the chamber helps keep paint out of the robot; but cobbled-together cable installations made seals leak requiring cable replacement. Fanuc engineers came up with a better way through a plug-andplay cabling. They redesigned the cable ends for mounting outside the spray booth using connectors from Elgin, Ill. The other end of the cable is routed, terminated, and tested inside the robot's purge cavity. The cable-sealing system from Roxtec lets cable ends pass through bulkheads without removing the connector. The Roxtec seal consists of several multidiameter modules, a mounting frame, and a compression unit. The split multidiameter modules have peel-away inner layers
Paint spraying equipment and paint sprayers are used to atomize and propel a concentrated mist of a finish coating onto a surface. This includes the equipment used to directly apply the spray coating, as well as a variety of supporting equipment to optimize the painting process.
Coating and spray booths are enclosures used to contain spray coating processes such as painting, powder coating, thermal spraying, and other deposition methods. This category includes hoods, cabinets, tunnels and similar enclosures
Sprayers and spray coating equipment refers to any component used in a variety of industrial spraying processes, including application tools, handling equipment, and supplemental machines. They are used in the process of atomizing coatings, paints, lubricants, solvents, deicing liquids, chemicals, and powders so they can be spray-applied to a surface.
Spray guns and applicators form a coating by directing atomized paints, adhesives, liquids, or powders toward a surface. These devices affect droplet sizes and spray patterns which influence the efficiency of the spray.
Industrial robots are programmable manipulators that contain rotary and/or prismatic joints in order to perform precise, repetitive movements. They are designed to move parts, tools, materials, and devices through variable, programmed motions. Types of products include articulated, Cartesian, cylindrical, gantry, parallel (hexapods), SCARA, and spherical robots.
