How It Works

Our Smart Finishing™ Robotic Workcell integrates advanced sensors and cameras with popular industrial and collaborative robot arm OEMs to deliver a turnkey, pre-engineered surface finishing solution in high-mix operations.

Select desired finishing process and details. For example, specify a Stainless Steel No. 4 polish finish.

Our system uses integrated cameras and other sensors to scan the workpiece. We'll use available CAD models for additional matching.

Using the sensor data and model, the robot automatically plans a robot motion and finishing process path. No programming required!

Robot executes the finishing process and uses sensors to monitor progress. No babysitting, freeing up operators for other tasks.
