Artificial Intelligence for Existing Robots and Eealing
Using artificial intelligence, Advanced Analytics detects defective sources at an early stage during the application of paint and now also high-viscosity materials
Advanced Analytics from Dürr’s DXQ software family is the first market-ready AI application for paint shops and is now also available for sealing

The Dürr Group operates in the market with the brands Dürr, Schenck and HOMAG and with five divisions: • Paint and Final Assembly Systems: paint shops as well as final assembly, testing and filling technology for the automotive industry, assembly and test systems for medical devices • Application Technology: robot technologies for the automated application of paint, sealants and adhesives • Clean Technology Systems: air pollution control, noise abatement systems and coating systems for battery electrodes • Measuring and Process Systems: balancing equipment and diagnostic technology • Woodworking Machinery and Systems: machinery and equipment for the woodworking industry
Identifying defect sources, determining the optimal maintenance schedule, improving manufacturing processes: until now, artificial intelligence only made this possible in a paint shop equipped with state-of-the-art robots. Now, however, Dürr is significantly expanding the scope of its AI applications with the enablement of analysis software from the DXQ product family for sealing. In addition, a unique interface solution makes it possible to incorporate robots from existing paint shops for the first time.
