Title: Manufacturing; Robotics; RoboCrane® for Aircraft Maintenance; Wide View
Description: A worker in a protective cab on a NIST-developed revolutionary robotic platform strips paint off a U.S. Air Force C-130. The easily maneuverable platform, that uses computer-controlled cables to 'float' around the aircraft, promises to drastically reduce paint-stripping time per airplane, cut maintenance costs and lessen incidents of operator stress and injury.
