Rational Robotics makes robots to automate tasks in light industrial environments. We specialize in using computer vision to automate robots that are able to deliver accurate and efficient painting applications. Our first product is a robot that paints parts automatically for collision repair shops. The collision industry amasses a size of over $41 Billion and there are well over 116,000 auto body shops in the United States alone. Auto body repair is an extremely laborious process: painting accounts for about 50% of the labor – we aim to offset some of that labor through automation. We also have traction in light industrial painting and surface finishing in the oil and gas industry. With many oil-field services companies, there is a need for the automated application of coatings to various pieces of equipment. Examples of such equipment include mud tanks, storage tanks, and bins. Since tolerances are lower and the profit is significantly greater in industrial painting, we have chosen to refine our technology by also pursuing industrial customers.RationalRobotics.com

In the same way that Electronic Toll Collection is making toll booths obsolete, Momentum’s EV-enabling technology provides a solution that promises to transform electric fueling into an unnoticed background operation.MomentumDynamics.com
