Thermal Spray Turnkey Coating Systems
Astro Alloys offers automated thermal spray equipment to make your life easier.The thermal spray process began in the early 1900s, and until recently it was a labor intensive endeavor. Each part was hand sprayed and quality largely depended on the skills of the operator. It wasn't until the late 1990s that robots began to be accepted and widely used in the thermal spray industry. The addition of robotics in thermal spray has greatly improved repeatability, accuracy and coating quality.
Cylindrical, flat, simple or complex—no matter the shape, size or geometry of your component, we offer manipulation equipment that will assist you in achieving an even coat.
We supply everything from basic manual turntables and manipulators to sophisticated robotic systems and custom-built handling machines to meet your unique needs.
Robotics Features Offered:
- Custom-built, manual or servo-driven
- Integrated motion control
- Payload and speed design flexibility
- Safety alarms and E-stop interlocks
- Six-axis robotic manipulation and auxiliary two-axis integration
