Robotic Composite Sanding
Sanding is one of the most commonly applied processes in all sectors of the industry.
Composite sanding improves the surface finish of a part by eliminating geometrical defects and change its roughness value. The result is:
- a surface that is ready to paint
- a surface that is suitable for assembly by bonding
- a finished piece with a matte, brushed or gloss effect.
This process is still mainly done by hand as the quality of the sanding depends on the operator’s skill and dexterity. It is, though, a particularly arduous task, that exposes operators to dust that frequently generates MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorders).
