Robotic Sanding of Composite Materials
Our sister company GEBE2 has developed a robotic sanding solution that reproduces the operator’s gestures and sensitivity. The central element, the effector, is equipped with a random orbital electric sander and a compliant device that applies a constant force in all directions, to the nearest N.
To enhance the autonomy and performance of their cells, GEBE2 has equipped its robots with automatic disc changers that provide for using a range of grain sizes.
Sanding quality is strongly related to the regularity of the sander’s motion on the part. Our offline programming software simulates all possible trajectories with a graphic display of the material’s removal.
