Sandblasting is a crucial process for surface preparation, cleaning, and finishing in various industries.

At Augmentus, we specialize in automating this complex process, offering cutting-edge robotic sandblasting solutions that enhance efficiency, precision, and safety. Our expertise includes blasting automation and robotics, ensuring top-tier performance for all your needs.

What is Robotic Sandblasting?

Robotic sandblasting, also known as robotic abrasive blasting, involves using automated blasting systems to direct abrasive materials onto a surface to clean or prepare it. Unlike traditional methods, robotic sandblasting ensures consistent quality and can handle complex geometries with ease.

Advantages of Robotic Sandblasting

  • Precision and Consistency

    Our robotic systems deliver unparalleled accuracy, ensuring uniform surface treatment and finishing every time.

  • Minimize Downtime

    Our no-code programming only takes minutes instead of days to program, significantly reducing the need for manual intervention and maintenance, which translates to increased productivity and efficiency.

  • Cost-Effectiveness

    Automated blasting systems reduce labor costs and increase throughput, providing a faster return on investment.

  • Improved Safety

    Automation minimizes human exposure to hazardous environments, reducing the risk of injury.
