These days 6 axes robots (if necessary with one or more external axes) are state of the art for coating of complex shaped surfaces.
Such gun manipulators have become relatively cheap and feature different advantages:
- high reproducibility
- high gun traverse velocity
- high flexibility
- complete communication between robot and coating machine controller
- offline programming possible
TSPC offers robots from different manufacturers. The TSPC technicians are specialised on Kuka, ABB and Fanuc robots.
However, there is no problem to impart the type of robot you are familiar with into a thermal spray installation.
