Surface Finishing

Surface finishing such as polishing, deburring, or sanding requires a delicate touch. Every surface has small variations so in order to achieve an even finish, the sander or polisher must meet the surface with a constant force and move with an even speed.

The addition of a 6-axis force/torque sensor lets the EoAT follow any contour while maintaining a constant force for the perfect result. This makes it ideal for applications such as cars, stainless steel sinks, furniture, and appliances, as well as machined parts that need a polished surface. Built-in force-control software allows operators to record the path with their hand rather than programming every waypoint separately, making polishing or deburring easy and allowing the robot to adjust to the surface automatically for a perfectly polished finish.
