Fully-automatic vision-based surface processes

CraftMate scans and constructs a highly precise 3D model of your object or the surface to be processed without a CAD model or heavy offline programming. The complete planning calculation only takes a few seconds even for complex surfaces and shapes. You can define a robot’s work area and configure various settings, including motion path, tool alignments, speed, orientation, and direction. Once the robot path is finished, you are ready to start.
