Automobile Factories > Paint Shop and conveyor Systems

Automation Systems for an Automobile paint shop in the manufacturing line involves the control of various sub sections such as:
Pretreatment both conveyors based with sprays and tanks with a suitable transporter system in which the components are chemically cleaned before painting. While the conveyor based systems are generally meant for small components, the larger components are usually treated in a variety of tanks. The controls optimizes the movement of material through the various tanks to ensure good cleaning in minimum time.
CED Rectifier Primer coating. This control is supplied with a suitable DC supply based on IGBT technology for minimum ripple and high power factor and efficiency with low harmonics. These units are made suitable for both live entry and dead entry of parts to be painted. Interface with the plant DCS is provided to coordinate with the main production program. The controls ensure the synchronization with the input conveyors and allow for suitable recirculation with the recovery of the undeposited paint is passed through an ultra filtration unit and reused. This control is crucial, as this is one of the units that determines the entire plant capacity.
The subsequent ovens and burners ensure the curing of the paint makes for a hard and durable polymeric film as a primer base. After the final paint in the final Booth that is usually managed by robots, the chassis or parts are again heated in ovens. Mostly IR Heaters are used with Thyristor control for maintaining the temperature required within close limits.
Scrubbers and sludge removal systems entrap the loose paint particles with a controlled air and water flow in the under section of the booth and transports this to the paint mix station. Water is recirculated after suitable filtration.
Conveyors of various types such as Power and Free, Power pulled and roller beds are used. They have to be synchronized with the rest of the operation. Especially important is when transfer has to be done from one conveyor to another without stopping the line. Special controls have been developed for the transfer of chassis while in motion from one conveyor to another.
Hoists, Scissor lifts, AGV and turntables are used frequently to reduce the plant foot print. Controls stress on the safety and synchronous operation with the rest of the conveyor system.
Storage solutions ( Carousel, lift storage etc) need to ensure systems for dense storage with fast recovery of specific components.
RFID ( wireless) identification of parts is done to track the position and help in fast recovery of the particular component in the flexible manufacturing systems.
Machine shop supervision includes Manufacturing Execution Systems that integrate with plant ERP systems (through predefined data base exchanges) to obtain real time data from the shop floor.

Automobiles > Testbeds

Chassis dynamometer  

Typically used to test the performance of vehicle, exhaust emission , fuel consumption, noise and fine tuning of exhaust and catalyst  and motor fuel-injection system. Dynamometers simulate the real highway/ road driving conditions precisely. This requires that during acceleration and deceleration, the roll inertia be compensated dynamically , to match the mass of the tested vehicle and the real road. To be able to realize such high dynamic online compensation, the load torque of the roll motor is controlled accurately  and with extreme precision at every speed point.Chassis dynamometer for two wheelers , three wheelers , four wheelers delivered. 

Engine test stands 

To measure power and torque directly from the engines crankshaft means knowhow in the selection of a correct AC machine with proper electrical and mechanical characteristics like smaller leakage inductance and inertia , and fast torque response management are challenges we are aware off and successfully delivered high performance test stands . Torque rise times achieved 1-2millisecs.  On the fly bump-less switch between Speed/Torque , Torque/Speed. Up-to 10000 RPM Max speeds 

Transmission and clutch Test Stands

These stands include several motors -- one simulating engine, and two or more to simulate the road. This requires mutual coordination of drives operation, the faster and more accurate it is the better it simulates real-world conditions like differential gear operation. Uphill/Downhill drive modes . Up-to 10000 RPM Max speeds

Furnaces come in various designs based on their application from small batch furnaces to large process furnaces with continuous operation

Furnaces

  • A bulk of these furnaces are used in the heat treatment of metals as in Roller and bogie hearth, bell Annealing, walking beam, Continuous galvanizing line furnace, Annealing and hardening furnace Continuous and batch processes.
  • Furnaces can be oil, gas or Electric heated.
  • Automation of these furnaces take into account the safety of operation, fuel/air ratio, burner management, zone wise cascaded temperature control, calculation based on heat flow and loss, thermal inertias, induced and forced draft blower control, recipe control of the temperature profile with respect to position and time, Optimization of throughput, reducing the heat loss during charge changes, recording performance and costs of operation, record of heat treatment processes, history, consolidation of multiple furnace outputs, and intimation of maintenance requirements, and connectivity to the cloud.
  • Other aspects of control refer to the charging and discharging station control. There are also extensive programs for the tracking of the billets, coils, bundles as they are processed through the furnace, with a recording of the process they are subject to and to estimate when the output will be available for further processing such as rolling mills.
