Protective covers for KUKA robots working in high pressure aluminium die casting
One of the leading manufacturers of, e.g., subassemblies for gearboxes and sprinkler systems in Automotive sector.
Use of EVO_heat protective covers for robots working in high pressure die casting of aluminium brought on many benefits:
- Protection of the robot surface from harmful effects of moisture from the separating agent;
- Protection of the moving parts from harmful factors in the robot environment, while they are working;
- Decrease in time and money spent on robot cleaning and maintenance;
- Less frequent robot repairs;
- Increased work safety.
Danger to KUKA KR16 and KUKA KR30 robots working in HPDC
The most common problem with robots working in high pressure die casting is excessive wear of their parts. The KUKA KR16 and KUKA KR30 robots working in this hostile environment are in danger of malfunctioning and their subassemblies require frequent replacement. This concerns primarily the gears and internal mechanisms, whose cost is much higher than the cost of EVO_heat covers.
Working without covers, the machines are exposed to accelerated degradation caused by harmful effects of hot splashes, oils and coolants. In such case, it is necessary to increase the frequency of robot cleaning and maintenance activities, which involves extended production downtime. As a result, the process efficiency drops. Thanks to using EVO_heat protective covers, it is possible to decrease the number of downtime periods to only two per year.
THE SOLUTION – EVO_heat protective covers for industrial robots working in high pressure aluminium die casting
The solution is protective covers from EVO_heat line – covers with special construction, made of fabric with a special hydrophobic coating, which prevents moisture from permeating the cover. The coating also stops solid particles and hot splashes, which no longer constitute a danger to the KUKA robots.
