quick intro to omnirobotic
Omnirobotic is developing Autonomous Industrial Robots. Like autonomous cars, autonomous robots can see their environment, plan and execute a given task by themselves. Unlike current industrial robots, no one has to teach autonomous robots the required sequence of actions or how to move. Omnirobotic is developing Artificial Intelligence so that robots can understand processes, not only repeat an instructed motion. This AI makes them able to perform tasks on any products in real time. As these robots don’t need to be programmed, they can be used on small production lot, even lot of one. Our first product, the OmniPainter™, is adapted to continuous flow finishing lines operation, supporting both powder and liquid coating application. They know how to paint anything!
How it works
Employees hang parts just like they do today. Any orientation, mixed or sorted. When a color change is required for a new batch, the employee only has to select the new color on the Scanning Station interface. Next batch passing thru it will now have the new color.
This "U" shaped equipment contain several cameras and the HMI. Altogether, they create a 3D digital model of passing parts and is located at the end of the hanging area. Complex shapes can be digitized, including items with cavities and bent tubing. There is no electric, electronic or mechanical link to your overhead conveyor, simplifying installation.
Digitized parts go through decontamination (liquid paint) or washing (powder paint), just as usual. If your process includes manual intervention to complete this process, parts should remain hanging in the same position afterward.
One OmniPainter™ should occupy each paint booth. OmniPainter™ will use existing painting equipment and adapt to existing booth environment. There is no link to your overhead conveyor other than the STOP button, simplifying installation. If your painting equipment does not support automatic color change, OmniPainter™ will stop the line and ask for assistance. Omnirobotic installation is certified for use in a hazardous area (Class I Div I Group D / Class II Div I Group E, F)
Parts go through the oven (powder paint) or drier (liquid paint) just as usual. Line speed can be changed during production according to curing/drying process requirement. OmniPainter™ will automatically call a momentary line stop until it catches up to the current speed if needed.
Your inspection process should continue to be performed according to your industry standard. However, we love to get feedback to better OmniPainter™ painting know-how. We provide deployed units with improved behaviors on a regular basis, based on collective acquired common knowledge, so they just get better and better over time.
OmniPainter™ is an Autonomous robot that knows how to paint. No teaching, no programming… ever. It sees, plans and paints just like humans so jig-less, mixed production is what it was built for! OmniPainters™ blend into your layout and workflow, just as a new employee would.
OmniPainter™ are available 24/7. They don’t quit. They’re never late. They never call sick. Omnirobotic monitor robot’s health remotely and provide preventive maintenance, so our OmniPainters™ are always ready when your finishing line is.
OmniPainter™ never get bored or tired. Productivity will increase from 10%-30%. Omnirobotic will provide you the tools to measure those gains, so you don't have to take our word for it.
OmniPainter™ continuously apply the best painting techniques, virtually eliminating application-related defects.
Hire an OmniPainter™ team for three months to see for yourself. If you're not satisfied, just fire them. We bet you won’t.
