Robotic Painting

Setting new standards with robotic painting technology

The traditional way of painting an aircraft is being revolutionised by the development of advanced, robotics-based paint application systems that enable the surface treatment and finishing processes – including tedious and time-consuming tasks such as sanding - to become a fully automated operation.

Robotic painting technology not only sets new standards in the quality of the paint finish achieved, it also presents a number of environmental benefits to the aviation sector. For example, while the optimum paint thickness is always applied, paint waste is significantly reduced thanks to the fact that overspray is minimised. And, because less solvents are used, robotic painting cuts the number of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted in to the atmosphere.
