Money and Performance Matter, Call Houdini . . .
for visiting NAPaint. This
spring we had an opportunity to make improvements to an automotive
OEM prime, base, and clear paint application system. This
system utilizes ABB 5400 slim arm paint robots on rails. About 12 years ago and again in 2008,
we visited this
plant briefly and reviewed operations. The system was not
reliable or efficient and did not achieve consistent paint
finishing. At the time, NAPaint was not able to have our
proposals to improve it accepted.
year, largely because of these recurring issues and thru an
insider recommendation to new management, we were given that
opportunity. Working side by side with management, plant
engineering, operators, skilled trades, and independently, in a couple long weeks addressed issues that had
cost this multi-billion dollar facility many, many, many millions
of dollars over the years. At the same time, NAPaint developed a complete
off-line robot programming capability in 3D, and working with the
facility paint team improved gloss and orange peel appearance in
critical problem areas to a level that had never been achieved
paint robot automation was a huge bottleneck and the major source
of expensive rework. Now, most robot related rework has been
eliminated, quality is much improved, and the robots spend a lot of time waiting for
parts. Like magic, significant increased quality and
capacity appeared out of the fog of paint automation, before our
is very good at getting huge results and is uniquely the best resource in the
world for new and seasoned ABB and FANUC paint and sealer systems
and all other paint processes. It doesn't matter what your issues are, we expect
to resolve all of them more or less permanently for all time.
2007, we have achieved 100% of our performance improvement
estimates. I personally have been doing this at all levels
since 1990. When

conditioning to existing equipment can have an enormously profitable
impact on the business, literally overnight. We specialize in the optimization of electrostatic and conventional industrial paint finishing systems
and robot paint automation. Our core service revolves around improving paint shop

done well and done right, the
benefits of paint operational efficiency can be immediate and
large. Efficient part rack design and robot programming
increase throughput, quality, yields, and uptime. Less
touch-up, repair, and finesse labor is required. Paint usage and overspray are significantly reduced,
lowering paint cost, material handling, waste generation and
disposal, and VOC/HAP emissions. Less repair eliminates
double processing and achieves greater system utilization. Booth maintenance
paint build-up is greatly reduced, as are equipment cover and

equipment and processes, existing and new. Our support of ABB,
Fanuc, Kawasaki, and Motoman robots with ITW Ransburg, Sames, or

for a comprehensive assessment of paint system operational
efficiency. Our approach to paint
is turn-key; not only do we identify the source of paint spits,
dirt, craters and fish-eyes, we eliminate them. From reducing paint waste and minimizing
painted scrap, to reducing paint overspray
contamination, from inefficient manual or automatic
and costly system faults, to inconsistent fluid delivery,
unreliable and inefficient process control, flooding turbines,
robot crashes, or paint system
upgrades, we support continuous improvement that will make your
paint application system more efficient than the day it was
installed, and often dramatically more so.
