In many process applications such as gluing, deburring, sewing, etc. It is often easier to pick up the part with the robot and move it at a constant speed around a fixed tool such as a deburring tool, polishing wheel, etc. Picking up a sanding belt at the end of a robot and moving it around isn't very convenient after all.
