  • HUNTSVILLE, Ala -- Aerobotix, an AS9100 certified FANUC robotics integrator and metrology company, is currently operational with the next generation hypersonic production line. A robotic assembly line scans, sands, paints, and measures complex missile components achieving critical tolerances required for hypersonic flight. This process will allow for consistent application of MINTEQ’s FIREX RX-2390 ablative coating to shield the missile structure from the extreme temperatures of hypersonic flight.

    Due to the hypersonic nature of the missile, both thermal protection and aerodynamic consistency are paramount. The process starts with an automated Shape Fidelity Scanner which records each component’s as-built dimensions. This data is then used to generate a custom path to scuff sand each component for optimal coating adhesion. An explosion-proof paint robot then applies dozens of layers of MINTEQ’s FIREX RX-2390 ablative coating. To make sure the coating falls within tolerance, the robot then utilizes a non-contact measuring tool to record the wet coating thickness.

  • HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Aerobotix, Inc. and Shape Fidelity, Inc. have announced the finalization of a full stock merger of all their business operations.

    The companies have merged all assets, intellectual property, contracts, and people to strengthen the complexity of offerings to our cutting-edge customer base. Shape Fidelity leads the industry with highly-customized, precision metrology solutions ranging from medical implants to full-up aircraft and spacecraft; Aerobotix’s expertise includes robotic painting, sanding, and inspection systems on a wide variety of missiles, fighters, bombers, and UAVs. Aerobotix and Shape Fidelity have been working together on critical aerospace projects for over ten years, growing to rely on each other while implementing advanced metrology hardware and software into turn-key automation systems alongside some of the world’s largest Aerospace companies. Aerobotix and Shape Fidelity partnered on multiple projects to push DoD and Aerospace manufacturing capabilities to areas that have never been reached before and will now be poised to work and grow together to benefit both our customers and our newly combined team.

    Founded in 2005, Aerobotix has 42 employees and over 125 robotic systems currently operating in the United States and abroad. Founded in 2010, Shape Fidelity has 23 employees with several stationed in critical support positions at facilities like NASA. “We’ve been working so closely for nearly ten years that it just makes sense for us to consolidate operations and still give our customers high quality, cutting edge solutions,” says Rob Black, President of Shape Fidelity.
