Self-Programming Paint Robot Requires No Teaching
The OmniPainter autonomous robot from Omnirobotic can see, plan and paint any part just like a human, making it well-suited for jig-less, mixed production.
The OmniPainter from Omnirobotic is an autonomous robot that already knows how to paint, never requiring teaching or programming. According to the company, the self-programming robot can see, plan and paint any part just like a human, making it well-suited for jig-less, mixed production. It has been adapted to continuous-flow finishing line operation, supporting both powder and liquid coating application. And because the robot does not need to be programmed, it can be used on a production lot as small as one part.
Omnirobotic says it is developing artificial intelligence so that robots can understand processes, not only repeat an instructed motion, making them able to perform tasks on any products in real time.
