Aerobotix, authorized FANUC integrator, has installed over one-hundred robots into turnkey systems used in an impressive variety of aerospace and defense programs, making them the robotic solutions experts.
Scan, Find, Paint: A vision into the future of automation using LiDAR for part detection
One of the world’s largest aerospace manufacturers partnered with Aerobotix to develop a cutting-edge robotic paint system for their newest series of jetliners. Learn how our team of software engineers integrated LiDAR technology to develop an automated part detection system featuring non-contact, non-robotic motion inside a C1D1 environment.
An off-the-shelf spray gun was useful for many aerospace robotic coating projects, but Aerobotix customers have confined spaces where the gun would not fit.
The efficiency of the mini spray gun allows for incredible cost saving.
After being tasked through a SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) program to create a partially automated sanding and polishing solution, ABX has continued to improve the robotic system by developing a fully automatic sanding solution for changing adhesive-back sandpaper for multiple grits.
Total estimated cost savings: $15 million
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.
Due to an increase in accuracy and efficiency, time and money are saved.
During some robotic spray operations, paint masking must be applied to ensure material is sprayed in certain areas of the part and not others.
Total estimated savings: $327,250
