Electric IP66 48V smart sander for industrial robots
The Mirka® AIROS is a lightweight sanding head that is compatible with most robotic systems and sanding applications in manufacturing. It is the first smart electric sander for industrial robots, engineered to be easy to integrate and to suit the needs of different manufacturing industries. The AIROS is IP66 classified and built for continuous automatic use in both dry and wet sanding applications as it is dust and waterproof.
The Mirka AIROS comes with a standardized ISO 9409-1 flange. As it can be made to fit all mechanical couplings, it fits most industrial robots and it is light enough to suit low payload robot arms. Direct fit without clamping ensures correct tool positioning and sanding angle. With suitable abrasives, the AIROS is compatible with dust-free sanding.
The AIROS features a sturdy design with a robust aluminum housing. The sanding head of the sander is separate from the controller unit, making parts easy to replace and reducing downtime and costs. Two-way control electronics produce monitorable live data and virtually all data interfaces are supported.

How does it work?
The Mirka® AIROS is designed for completely automated industrial sanding, both dry and wet. It uses multihole papers, sanding discs or net abrasives to produce a consistent and smooth surface in an automated process, supporting dust-free sanding solutions. The brushless motor and separately mounted controller enable precisely configurable rpm management for reproducible sanding quality, keeping rpm constant even under high load. The two-way electronics of the AIROS provide detailed data about the status of the sander, with adjustments possible if necessary. You can rely on the AIROS to provide consistent sanding day or night without worrying about downtime or maintenance.
