Say hello to Mimic Sander
Achieve professional surface finishing results effortlessly with Mimic Sander, an all-in-one solution designed to cater to a range of automated surface finishing needs. Whether you are sanding, polishing, or cleaning, this comprehensive sanding solution has got you covered. Plus, with everything you need to begin your project right away.
Mimic Sander is made with our users in mind

Sanding is often dirty and dangerous work that carries a range of potential health risks for workers, from the debilitating white-finger syndrome caused by high-vibration hand tools to lung damage caused by particulate matter.

It has been our mission to help surface finishers automate these dangerous jobs. Drawing on our extensive user research we created Mimic Sander to be a complete setup for them that enables control of the tool, position, speed and applied force without any programming skills.

The complete Mimic Sander package incorporates everything users need to get their sanding application started quickly and easily: a plug-and-play sanding solution and intuitive software.

This enables the users with the actual processing know-how to take control of their production processes, reducing their reliance on skilled professionals. Visual, audio, and tactile control is provided to ensure that the operator is in control at all times, even when working with complex shapes.

The Mimic Sander is particularly useful in high-mix production setups where a variety of different products are produced in small quantities. In such environments, the number of raw materials wasted due to human error can be significant. Inconsistently performed sanding and marks left from the tool can lead to rejects and rework, which is costly and time-consuming. By using the Mimic Sander, workers can ensure that the sanding process is consistent, reducing the number of raw materials wasted.

“Nordbo Robotics is committed to providing businesses with affordable, application-centered solutions that are easy to set up and maintain. Mimic Sander is a versatile sanding solution that provides all the features and benefits our customers expect of automated sanding technology, but without all the hassle and cost traditionally associated with automated sanding tools,” says Jimmy Jørgensen, CTO of Nordbo Robotics.
