Flexiv (San Jose, CA) announced its collaboration with EsVata, a manufacturer of window shutters, in ushering in a new era of sanding efficiency.

Deployed to EsVata’s California-based factory, Flexiv’s Rizon 4 adaptive robot has set new benchmarks for automated precision and efficiency in the previously labor-intensive material abrasion processes.

EsVata chose to integrate the Rizon 4 into their production line specifically to automate the time-consuming task of sanding window shutters. Previously accomplished by skilled manual labor, Flexiv’s adaptive technology has sped up the sanding process by 80%, while simultaneously increasing the quality and consistency of the shutter's surface finishing.
