Sanding Disc Master - SDM

For the first time ever, a company has succeeded in developing a fully automated system for changing velour-backed sanding discs.

The new Sanding Disc Master Station – SDM – therefore sets completely new standards in the field of automation technology and allows not only a fully automatic removal of worn discs, but also provides a high degree of flexibility due to its variable number of magazines when using multiple different abrasives with a single device.

In addition to the extremely economic robot standing process itself, this results in further cost savings.

Patented workflow
  • Move the disc-type sander to the defined position
  • Remove the worn abrasive disc
  • Check the removal process via sensors
  • Find the hole position for the suction process and readjust the sanding unit
  • Introduce the new abrasive disc and perform checkup

Field of application
  • Robotic sanding cells
  • Multifunctional robot stations (the robot can also assume other tasks in addition to sanding)
  • For all industrial sectors
  • Independent of the processed material!
  • Sanding discs available for many materials: Metals, color, filler, paint, gelcoat, composites, fiberglass, hard and soft plastics, acrylic glass, plastic and mineral stone, hard and soft wood and many more…
