Let’s say you have something metallic you want polished. Maybe it’s as small as your grandfather’s heirloom watch or as big as a thousand product run on metal faucets for your interior design company. Either way, when robotic metal finishing equipment is utilized for the project, the results are faster and more consistent.
Many different companies manufacture robotic metal finishing equipment but not every metal plating company has robotic capabilities. Only one out of ten metal companies across the United States offer polishing services, and only 10% of those utilize robotic and automatic polishing techniques. Bend Plating is included in the 10%.
Automated and robotic metal finishing provide uniform results for every project. The reality is, robotic machinery is taking the place of many human tasks, but the results are fewer errors and a higher ROI. Employing robotic metal finishing equipment is important for higher production at a lower cost, more precise finishing techniques, and faster project completion times. There are generally three types of robotic finishing systems in the industry:
- Lean finishing cells
- High-pressure water edgebreaking systems
- Blast cabinets
