Güdel and Titan Robotics Work Together to Automate De-Painting of Full Aircraft

The Airforce was looking for a way to automate laser de-painting of full aircraft and contacted the National Robotics Engineering Center at Carnegie Melon to develop a robotics solution that was robust. Inside a hangar, known as the Titan Robotics Pittsburgh Integration and Testing Center, a system was set up as if it were installed in the final customer’s location. Titan Robotics knew they wanted a rail-based system so that they could reach very long parts efficiently and that led them right to Güdel. Titan’s system reduces the hazards for staff? who previously had to perform these operations manually. By working together, Güdel and Titan Robotics have created a partnership that has not only led to a successful solution for this application challenge, but opened the door to future collaborations.
