The Robot Sander solution has been developed for aircraft assemblies and is seen as setting new standards in automated surface treatment. As the German exhibitors from Suhner explain, the work parameters are determined, digitally tested and loaded directly into the robot controller using CAD surface models. With the help of the Digital Factory module, any process can be analyzed separately. According to the manufacturers, the exact parameterization of the surface machining allows the precise selection of abrasives as well as sustainable planning of acquisition, storage and disposal, thereby reducing the total cost. Thanks to the integration of Industry 4.0 technologies in the highly adaptive solution, customers can monitor performance, perform process diagnostics and optimization and carry out preventive maintenance work and spare parts planning.
Surface technology/ Industry 4.0
A fine touch for any complex form
