When Bilsing Automation, one of the leading suppliers of flexible tooling and handling systems for press shop and body applications, was looking for an adhesive to join carbon fibre structural components with aluminium fixtures for its revolutionary robot arm, it chose Araldite 2031.

Alfred Bilsing, CEO of Bilsing Automation and veteran of the automation industry said:“Stringent performance and reliability target set by the rotating, clamping and swivel movements of robot parts on busy production lines had to be met. Wherever gripping and transportation becomes necessary in the automated process, there needs to be flexible tooling to minimise the design and development expense.

“Araldite 2031 was particularly impressive in its resistance to vibration allowing the movement of parts to move quickly and operate for a longer period of time without downturn. It met every target we set it under the most demanding of conditions.”

Araldite 2031 is a general purpose toughened black epoxy resin and is part of the Araldite 2000 Plus range of adhesives.
