KENT, Ohio — SprayWorks Equipment announced the capability of fabrication within its new facility with its first in-house Spraybot.

Earlier this year, SprayWorks moved to a new facility, which increased the Round Rock TX Roof building size by almost 20,000 square feet. With recent widespread material shortages and inflation, bringing fabrication in-house was pivotal to faster turnaround times and decreasing production costs.

The product most impacted by this change was the Spraybot, an automated plural component applicator for spray foam and polyurea. Fabrication equipment used to develop the Spraybot includes; shears, press brake, milling machines, and metal band saws. As part of the move, SprayWorks brought on Jesse Anstine who has nearly 20 years of experience with automation for spray applied materials.

“This has been a great achievement for SprayWorks, we now have the ability to design and fabricate automated systems all under one roof. With that ability, comes rapid research and development," said Jeremy Davidson, head of production. "When our customers consider buying a Spraybot, it’s a big decision. Our goal is to make that choice easier by providing a faster return on investment, reduce the learning curve for applicators and increasing the robot’s versatility. If one of our customers is bidding a job, we want our automation to be that critical advantage over the competition."
