A compliant sanding tool designed for robots
The Robotic Sanding Cell is equipped
with the ATI AOV-10 orbital sander tool.
With built-in adjustable compliance, the AOV-10 Robotic Orbital Sander is primed for a wide variety of surface preparation, conditioning and finishing processes. The pneumatically actuated compliance mechanism gives users control of contact forces to provide consistent processing, regardless of the tool’s orientation. The AOV-10 is optimized for use with 3M Abrasives and includes 3M’s curated starter media kit.
To bring more autonomy to the sanding process, the Robotic Sanding Cell is equipped with the Automatic Media Change system for the AOV-10. This hands-free option for media changeover helps the cell perform its task with minimal human intervention. Users can program exchange cycles to optimize their media and store backup discs or use a variety of discs in one process.
