10 Excellence Centers will be found at the Bürkle Technology Arena at LIGNA 2019 in Hall 17, Exhibit Stand F19. Bürkle will display its portfolio of services and solutions at its significantly expanded stand, with a focus on system automation using robot technology, spray-paint machines combined with system peripheries, digital printing, surface finishing and interdisciplinary engineering with 4.0 functionality for virtual start-up operations and system simulation in real time.
System Automation with Robot Technology
For many years, system automation has been key to project planning in all Bürkle surface technology product segments. Bürkle has always had a high level of expertise in the deployment of a variety of workpiece manipulation. Alongside the development of automation solutions in linear technology, the Freudenstadt-based systems manufacturer has also strategically diversified. In the future, the company will focus even more strongly on automation technology. At LIGNA, Bürkle will be presenting its work with a renowned global player in robotics with two automated manufacturing cells.
Spray-Painting and System Peripheries
The well-known machines from the ROBUSeco and ROBUSpro series will be presented in Hannover with a range of new process-related developments and innovations. It’s all about being faster, more economical, and more efficient. Faster color change allows optional integration of a color changing system. In addition, paint loss during color changes is very low. The use of different color cycles makes is possible to process different types of paint separately.
During rotation spraying, Bürkle combines high-speed (up to 20 m/min) with more efficient processing. In spite of the high feed rates, the machine runs very quietly (approx. 20 rpm = approx. 125 m/min circumferential speed). Automatic gun tracking enables perfect coating quality – even at the edges.
In the entry-level segment, Bürkle complements the ROBUSeco series with a new handling system for semi-automatic loading and removal of workpieces.
Digital Printing Technology
Our customers desire more differentiation and a high degree of flexibility. To meet these objectives, the group will present two single-pass inkjet printers for wood decor printing at LIGNA, together with a major, internationally active partner. This premiere will offer a unique range of applications for many wood composite substrates.
