October 5, 2011 - Esys announced the AutoMask rotary masking tool for robotic coating applications. It reliably delivers a perfect spray line without on-vehicle masking. In the highly automated world of vehicle assembly, precision and quality are critically intertwined attributes, and AutoMask delivers on both counts.


Automask is the latest addition to Esys Automation's open architecture for paint and dispense solutions. Open architectures provide OEM's choice, flexibility, and maintainability by allowing customers to independently select the best robotics, vision systems, controls, and equipment available today. Esys PerfectProcess software completes the solution footprint, delivering powerful, exacting control over the many variables that impact a coating process, such as surface contours, temperatures, pressure, and material viscosity.

Esys Automation Paint and Dispense applications are employed in a variety of OEM final assembly lines today, including anti-chip/rocker panel coatings, roof ditch applications, underbody and interior seam sealing, and liquid apply sound dampening.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
