The FeatherDuster system advances vehicle paint lines by replacing purpose-built “tack off” machines with robotic technology that is incredibly flexible and built on well-established standards to achieve higher quality, efficiency and ease of use.
Traditionally, purpose built “tack-off” machines have handled the painstaking task of removing dust and dirt particles from a vehicle before it is painted on an assembly line. ABB’s FeatherDuster system replaces these one-dimensional machines with an unheard of level of precision, control and flexibility by combining a standard ABB robot with an advanced rotating feather and vacuum tool to suck particles from the surface of the vehicle.
Features and benefits:
