Robotics are widely used in industrial environments with harsh operating conditions, such as steel mills, aluminum smelters, foundries, refineries, and petrochemical plants. However, without proper protection from the hazards of these conditions, tens of thousands of dollars that have been invested in robotic equipment can be lost in an instant. To remain effective, robotics must weather extreme conditions without corroding or degrading, and be resistant to dust, chemicals, moisture, and temperature extremes. Robot Covers and Robot Protective Systems have been used to prevent component failure, allow robots to operate in a larger range of conditions, and extend the operational life of the robots. However, many of the fabrics traditionally used have a high level of flexural failure, and low resistance to heat and abrasion.
Our protective covers for robots can be manufactured as FANUC robot covers, ABB robot covers, Kawasaki robot covers, KUKA robot covers, and many other styles of robots.
THERMOPAK® Robot Covers and Robot Protective Systems are innovative, durable covers that benefit robots working in a range of dangerous or industrial environments, and in applications where a flexible, high strength, high-temperature fabric is required. Manufactured from our ARMATEX® SBF 13-602, our products have exceptional strength and incredibly high flexural failure resistance, as well as chemical and thermal stability. THERMOPAK® Robot Covers and Robot Protective Systems can also be manufactured from coated fabrics specific to your application requirements, such as UV resistance and waterproofing.
