Robotiq Launches Sanding Kit


Robotiq, as part of its partnership with Universal Robots (UR), launched a new Sanding Kit. The kit is a hardware and software all-in-one sanding solution for cobots. It includes Finishing Copilot software that generates a complete sanding trajectory with a handful of waypoints, a pneumatic orbital tool connected to a bracket designed for UR and all connection accessories. “Processing tasks such as sanding and polishing are not what cobots have been traditionally known for,” said Stuart Shepherd, regional sales director of UR’s Americas region. “But by being able to easily add new advanced capabilities such as a UR+ certified sanding kit, this helps open up a whole new frontier for us.”
