Robotic Sanding

Remove Inconsistencies and Elevate Your Part’s Finish

Robotic sanding is an application where PushCorp’s equipment excels. Our precise force and constant speed end effectors account for part variability and abrasive wear. Therefore, manual processes can be automated easier than ever.

In non-automated processes, operators rely on visual inspections. Not only is this is a tedious process, but it leaves the finish completely up to the individual.

The skill level of these workers are extremely variable due to the high turn over in the industry. As a result, manually finished parts are inconsistent, being either over sanded or under sanded. In addition to an inferior finished part, non-automated processes use a higher volume of abrasives. For example, if the operator applies too much force the abrasive media glazes over. Conversely, the abrasive will not re-fracture if too little force is applied. With an automated system, not only is the part quality significantly better, but abrasive life can increase by 200-300%.

As an illustration, this video shows how effortless robotic sanding can be. In fact, a robot paired with a PushCorp force compliance device and servo spindle is just what you need to automate your material removal application.

This video showcases an AFD310-2 and an STC1503-BT30. Together, this equipment is able to quickly and efficiently remove the top level of paint.
