coatmaster AG and coatingAI AG have agreed a strategic co-operation which leverages the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive even greater quality, efficiency and profitability – with associated environmental benefits too – for customers in the automated powder coating line industry.
The world’s first closed-loop control solution for automated powder coating processes, produced by coatingAI, will draw on data from coatmaster thickness measuring devices featuring latest optical sensor technology. Together, they will automatically and intuitively control powder coating lines towards process stability. This will not only result in reduced coating material consumption and better homogeneity, but also in lower personnel resource requirements, thus producing a quality product while reducing material and labor costs – as well as proactively minimising the environmental footprint.
Marlon Boldrini, CEO of coatingAI AG said: "The combination of coatmaster’s Advanced Thermal Optics technology sensors and coatingAI’s smart algorithm-driven advanced computer vision and machine learning technologies harnesses two powerful digital age tools to deliver real benefits for people – and the planet.”
Prof. Dr. Nils Reinke, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of coatmaster AG commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with coatingAI and look forward to helping customers in the automated coating line sector confront two major challenges – producing quality results and overcoming the shortage of skilled labor – and both of those while ensuring continued profitability.”
