Dürr brings solution for digital paint layer calculation


Uniform layer thicknesses are an important quality factor in industrial car painting. Until now, numerous test runs were necessary when launching new models to ensure the perfect painting results were achieved. Dürr has now succeeded in calculating layer thicknesses virtually and incorporating this module into the existing programming software for application robots. With the newly developed simulation software, car manufacturers can reduce the number of real-life tests. The DXQ3D.onsite software is available with the new process simulation module. The first beta site versions are already in use.

Each time there is a new project in a paint shop, for example a new model launch, numerous processes and parameters must be precisely adjusted until the applied paint has the required layer thickness everywhere on the body. Until everything is properly adjusted, bodies undergo test painting in a complex parameterization process. With the new simulation tool from Dürr, manufacturers can now model and optimize this process virtually.

“It is now possible to reduce the number of test paint runs and test bodies by more than 50%,” explains Dr. Lars Friedrich, President & CEO Application Technology at Dürr Systems AG. “This makes commissioning more efficient, lowers material costs, and results in fewer poorly coated bodies.”
