The robot made one pass and then another, back and forth, as the entire machine methodically lurched along a length of geotextile fabric.
“It doesn’t get tired; it doesn’t get hot; it doesn’t think about lunch; it doesn’t have a girlfriend; it keeps on running,” Mike Whitener said, over the noise emanating from the machine. “It just works.”
Standing on the production floor of Total Containment Solutions (TCS), we were observing, essentially, the efforts of a spray applicator; one not made of flesh and bone, but metal, rubber and electrical components. We were looking at the robotic spray applicator for RoboLiner®, the latest secondary containment innovation from TCS, which is owned by Whitener. RoboLiner is bringing new levels of efficiency and accountability to the polyurea secondary containment market by mitigating the shortcomings of in-field applications with the advantages of in-house pre-manufacturing utilizing robotic systems.
