With the brief to “blast anything anywhere”, SABRE have developed the next generation of autonomous grit-blasting robot. The Mobile Blasting Robot is being designed with flexibility and return on investment in mind. Some of the key features include:
Small enough to fit into the back of a pickup-truck or small van
Narrow enough to fit through a standard doorway
Robot weighs less than 25kg (48lbs)! The total system weights less than 65kg (153lbs) – It can easily be separated into sections weighing under 25kg for safe and easy lifting.
Simple to operate via the Operator Control Unit – no robotics expertise required!
Adaptable blasting parameters to suit job and site requirements
Can be fitted to a scissor lift or cherry picker to provide height access
Online blast quality monitoring
Multi-robot collaboration – even more productivity gains by having multiple robots working together with only one operator

First, multiple 3D images are taken of the environment before the system blasts to a Class 3 finish across different levels of rusted steel.
