New robotic painting system saves ‘significant’ resources, claims FraunhoferAn automated painting system, involving an industrial robot, is claimed to save significant resources by its developer, the Fraunhofer Institute.The robotic system – called SelfPaint – is said by Fraunhofer to offer reductions of 20 percent in paint use, 15 percent in energy consumption and 5 percent in production time.These are “significant advantages” compared to manual painting operations, which have previously been the preferred option, adds Fraunhofer. SelfPaint’s biggest advantage could well be that it is also suitable for painting individual pieces, known in industry as batch size 1.
