Prior to purchasing automated production systems, customers often ask us to provide research and development services to develop the process to be used in production. This is often necessary with today’s advanced materials and process requirements to verify feasibility and define the equipment and controls required to achieve a robust, stable process.
Aerobotix can perform process development work in our in-house robotic laboratory and spray booth or on-site at a customer’s facility. We maintain a current generation FANUC robot, controller, and software, and we have in-house flow system and spray application equipment. Our equipment and the knowledge of process engineers allow us to offer a wide range of capability when it comes to process development.
Process development has proven the key to the overall success of the follow-on production system for many of our customers, due to level of risk reduction with the process, schedule and budget. It allows them to procure their system with a higher level of confidence of receiving a production capable system.
