Surface grinding and finishing, such as sanding and polishing, are time-consuming and labor-intensive processes that require the operator to have stamina and technical skill to perform manually.
Robots are being used to perform these surfacing applications to achieve a consistent, high-quality finish while reducing the occurrence of injury and environmental risks, such as dust or vibration, to a human operator. With Robotmaster, manufacturers can rapidly generate robot path trajectories directly from the CAD model for a variety of robot brands. Built with embedded process knowledge, the need for highly experienced users is reduced and the result is an optimal surface finish and predictable results.
