The final surface – the finish – of a large yacht must meet extremely high demands: the finished coating should make the yacht “gleam” and thus appear smooth and have no unevenness. In the past, a “high-gloss look” could only be achieved through many individual stages and with complex manual work. Until now, filling and sanding in particular have been laborious but essential process stages in achieving the superyacht finish the owner expects.
With our patented robot, we can now provide technology which allows the work process to run automatically in part. Milling, grinding, sanding and - in future - fllling are handled by the robot, which is mounted on a mobile platform and can therefore work on the superyacht without scaffolding. In addition to the significantly greater surface coverage compared to manual work and the perfect finish, the robot also offers health benefits for personnel – the sanding dust is extracted in the work process.
