ABB Ability™ Connected Atomizer

RB1000i is world’s first digital connected paint atomizer, potentially saving millions of dollars for user. The entire ABB painting system offers an environmentally friendly turnkey solution that provides real-time analysis and improved diagnostics in order to increase uptime and ensure zero quality defects.

Digitally enabled paint atomizer
ABB Ability™ Connected Atomizer is the first con­nected, sensor-equipped, robotic paint atomizer allows for real-time smart diagnostics and precise paint control to optimize painting quality. This new level of digitalization supports robot users’ transition towards the factory of the future. By monitoring the condition of key atomizer components such as bell cups, air motors, and shaping air ring, as well as variables such as acceleration, pressure, vibration and temperature, the painting transfer efficiency can be boosted by up to 10%. This also eliminates the need for costly downtime for repainting or touchups.

First-in-class performance
This RB1000i paint atomizer increases transfer efficiency by 10%, reduces internal atomizer waste during color changes by 75%, and reduces compressed air con­sumption by 20% which can collectively save millions of dollars. The atomizer adapts the SA (shaping air) nozzle with the super pattern control function in which the range of the effective pattern width is wider than before. This function results in minimizing over spray by controlling the dual shaping airs individually and switching to the optimum pattern width for the shape of the object being painted.
