AEROBOTIX CASE STUDIES

Gantry Robotic Paint System & Parts Chaos

Gantry Robotic Paint System & Parts Chaos

“I can’t use a paint robot for my process. I don’t have part models, I don’t have programmers, and no robot can reach all my large parts.”

Large Area, Large Robotic Sander

Large Area, Large Robotic Sander

Large military aircraft surfaces call for a large sander on a large robot.

Aerobotix customers often have very large surfaces requiring sanding or surface preparation. ABX solved this challenge with an end-of-arm tool (EOAT) with three orbital sanders mounted on a robot with extended reach capability.

Non-Contact, Wet Coating Thickness Measurement

Non-Contact, Wet Coating Thickness Measurement

Guess what happens when you shoot a coating thickness measurement signal at a performance coating designed to confuse signals? You guessed it, you get very confused thickness measurement data.

Aerobotix (ABX) worked with Compass Technology Group (CTG) to apply their Advanced Microwave Mapping Probes (AMMP) technology to wet coating thickness measurement.

Mini Spray Gun Enables Huge Savings

Mini Spray Gun Enables Huge Savings

An off-the-shelf (OTS) spray gun was useful for many aerospace robotic coating projects, but Aerobotix (ABX) customers have confined spaces where the gun would not fit.

Robot Caught Tagging a Production Part

Would you want your robot going after your Fighter Jet with a Sharpie?!

For certain applications, customers of Aerobotix (ABX) must apply masking paper before the robotic spray application of performance coatings.  One such example of this is with Hill Air Force Base (HAFB) in Ogden, UT.
