How did Stolab Möbel AB, a Swedish manufacturer of high-quality furniture, reduce robot programming time in the paint shop?
Well, it started with the decision to implement VR based programming via RobotStudio. This resulted in higher uptime in production, due to less on-line programming, reduced programming time and improved quality.

Svensk Pulverlackteknisk Förening is an interest organisation for Swedish powder painters and suppliers. They are doing a great job increasing knowledge among their members and bringing them together through networking. At the annual meeting in November, Robert Ovrell was one of the guest speakers. He talked about ABB paint robots and how to apply VR as a tool to simplify and improve programming. With RobNor AB and ABB RobotStudio it's not the future, it's now. #robot #virtua
Even an old workhorse like the ABB IRB 5400 needs to be replaced. Back in 2005 we installed two ABB IRB 5400 paint robots on two 5,5 m rails at Väderstad AB. They have been painting high performance farm machinery for more than 13 years. This summer RobNor AB replaced the robots and upgraded the control system. We reached all the milestones including SOP as planned and started with full quality production from day one. With this investment Väderstad entered a new era of digit
We are not a VR company. We are a company that are specialists within automation in the paint shop. Robots, valves, guns, bells and other equipment is our core knowledge and we have more than 25 years of experience. About two years ago we started working with VR as a RobotStudio interface. We have had great success with our existing and new customers. It increases the value of the existing investment, simplifies programming and lowers the threshold for entering robot automati
Another customer is introduced to VR and robot programming for their painting line. Patrik Malmquist, NIBE's robot programmer for wood burning stoves, is in the virtual reality creating robot programs after just 10 minutes of training from RobNor AB's Marco Rossi. We have never seen a lower learning treshold for a software tool. In the real reality you find Victor Haraldsson, Patrik Ahlin, Herman Nordqvist and Anders Lundh. #robot #virtualreality #programming #training #vr #a
Happy New Year! During the holidays our team has installed the Nordic's two first ABB IRB 5510 paint robots and application equipment at Volvo Penta in Vara. The new system means improved quality as well as paint savings and as a result positive environmental effects. In addition to robots and application equipment, RobNor AB has supplied equipment for VR robot programming. Volvo Penta's Bertil Andersson has made new production programs using RobotStudio and Virtual Reality.
Christmas premiere! A new VR movie is released from RobNor to brighten up your Christmas. More to come later, such as director's cut and extended version. It's a paradigm shift for robot programming. A production ready program created in less than three minutes. Contact RobNor to book your VR workshop. Contact information at www.robnor.se Thanks to Crescocito for the lab, Plastal for parts and Beckers Group for the paint. #robot #virtualreality #programming #robotstudio #vr #
Sharing knowledge creates positive spin-offs and an upcoming JOT article. Our partner, POMA Systems GmbH, are experts in paint equipment and systems. Their equipment is often a value adding part to RobNor AB's robot systems at our high end customers. Implementing ABB RobotStudio and VR in their lab together with their ABB paint robot means better trials and, at the end, more and better business. Thanks to Dr. Thomas Scholz there is an upcoming article in JOT (Journal für Obe
Classic robot programming training spiced up with VR. Plastal Gothenburg and Raufoss participates in a robot programming training at Innovatum, RobNor’s Trollhättan office. Trainer is Marco Rossi. Quotes from the participants (Anna Bengtsson, Jelena Panic Kostadinovic, Tom Rudi Åsen and Stig Tore Nilsen): - We think it was a very rewarding training that gave us a broader understanding and knowledge of robot programming. It was both fun and interesting to learn and try to buil
