Robotic deburring and finishing are exciting opportunities for manufacturers to increase productivity and mitigate the challenges of a shrinking workforce. But with the excitement of robotic abrasives comes risks, challenges and unknowns. 3M is a trusted leader in robotic material removal. With decades of experience partnering with system integrators and robot manufacturers – and as a leader in abrasives for robots and abrasives automation – we can help you navigate the process with confidence.
Streamline your robotic sanding implementation with two trusted automation industry experts. 3M and SCHUNK have teamed up to deliver a new automated sanding solution — a complete kit including a compliant orbital sander and professionally selected 3M sanding abrasives.
If you’re looking for more consistent part quality and surface finishes in your sanding operations, our robotic sanding kit is the ideal solution. This compact tool comes ready to mount to your industrial robot and delivers fine finishes at any pressure or orientation — even upside down.
The affordable and flexible AOV-10 Axially Compliant Orbital Sander from SCHUNK streamlines surface preparation processes and allows users to configure the tool for their unique process. The sander is optimized with the included 3M sanding discs and backup pads for maximum performance, consistent cut and long life — qualities of an efficient robotic cell.
