Polishing by collaborative robot arms

Applying the right force in polishing and buffing applications with collaborative robot arms

Ensure consistent polishing and buffing using a Universal Robot with built-in force mode – even on curved and uneven surfaces

Polishing, buffering and even sanding tasks require a very specific, often very delicate touch. A Universal Robot with force control as part of its programming structure allows for this, and offers a flexible solution that will automatically adjust position in order to achieve the desired force.

A robot that can apply a specific force to its environment itself, for example a workpiece, is a valuable capability, which can be provided as an additional technology by other manufacturers. However, with Universal Robots, it comes as standard.

  • Apply certain torque around predefined axes
  • Ensures consistency and predictable quality
  • Relieve workers from ergonomically unfavorable and strenuous tasks
  • Sand and polish even curved and uneven surfaces with adjustable force mode
