Esys Automation announces AutoMask paint system

Esys announced the AutoMask rotary masking tool for robotic coating applications. It reliably delivers a perfect spray line without on-vehicle masking.

October 5, 2011 - Esys announced the AutoMask rotary masking tool for robotic coating applications. It reliably delivers a perfect spray line without on-vehicle masking. In the highly automated world of vehicle assembly, precision and quality are critically intertwined attributes, and AutoMask delivers on both counts.


Automask is the latest addition to Esys Automation's open architecture for paint and dispense solutions. Open architectures provide OEM's choice, flexibility, and maintainability by allowing customers to independently select the best robotics, vision systems, controls, and equipment available today. Esys PerfectProcess software completes the solution footprint, delivering powerful, exacting control over the many variables that impact a coating process, such as surface contours, temperatures, pressure, and material viscosity.

Esys Automation Paint and Dispense applications are employed in a variety of OEM final assembly lines today, including anti-chip/rocker panel coatings, roof ditch applications, underbody and interior seam sealing, and liquid apply sound dampening.
