Robotic integrator Aerobotix, based in Madison, has integrated and installed more than 100 FANUC robots, performing its services in five countries.
Aerobotix specializes in integrating the robots for sanding and painting systems, most of which are involved in aerospace and defense industries. Some of its projects include the F-35 Lightning and B-2 Stealth Bomber, Patriot missiles and hypersonic missile programs.
“The use of robots has drastically reduced the time and cost needed to complete these tasks and creates an ergonomically friendly and less hazardous work environment,” says Keith Pfeifer, engineering manager at Aerobotix.
The privately owned company was founded in 2005 and provides design, build, installation and support services, relying heavily on its own employees rather than contractors.
