Walter Surface Technologies has recently launched a new service to expand on its automation and robotic solutions for industrial manufacturers.

Walter, a member of the A3 – Association for Advancing Automation, has partnered with a large network of North American system integrators and end-of-arm tool manufacturers that specialize in robotic systems and material removal operations in order to craft a fast but thorough automatization process that involves a readiness assessment, the evaluation of requirements and objectives, the selection of the right technology and the design of the new system, as well as its testing and integration, performance review, training and ongoing maintenance.

These partners include renowned brands such as PushCorp, ATI Automation and Effecto (formerly Applied Robotics), and enable Walter to better support end users from beginning to end, from the quoting and conceptualization stage to the installation and optimization of the system. To further customize the solution and design a system based on the end user’s needs, Walter says it works closely with all parties involved to ensure product availability and seamless integration.

“Working with Walter has enabled our mutual end users to successfully execute projects thanks to solutions that were not available elsewhere. Our joint ability to provide these solutions on an expedited time schedule has not only enabled critical automation projects to stay on time but has also instilled confidence through to our partnership as market leaders within the automated material removal industry,” says Maximiliano Falcone, VP of sales engineering at PushCorp.

Walter offers a broad array of abrasives, tooling and anti-spatter solutions that can be adapted and tailored to a wide breadth of robotic applications that include heavy grinding, deburring, drilling and finishing, on all types of materials, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, fiberglass and more. This large selection of adaptable products enables Walter to support end users and system integrators looking to automate their processes in various industries from metal fabrication and automotive, to composite, aerospace and metal casting.
