Aerobotix has taken robotic sanding to the next level by incorporating active compliance. Our robotic sanding systems react to a variety of sensor inputs to actively adjust the robot motion “on-the-fly.” The robot receives the inputs and alters the kinematic motion of the taught program to achieve a desired force at the sanding tool. Previous technologies overload the sanding tool with compliance responsibilities that make the tool large, complicated, expensive, and limited. By allowing the robot to automatically and actively change its path, within a limited range of motion, we have opened a new era in robotic sanding.
We use our Process Engineering philosophies when working with sanding applications. Our engineers sand a variety of test panels to establish a “recipe” for each process.
