We do it all, which keeps our lead times, quality, and costs unbeatable. At SuperDroid Robots, we design, build, assemble, program and test all custom robots under one roof, at our 10,000-square-foot facility in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.
Our on-site digital machine shop is the cornerstone of our in-house turn-key production model. Our CNC machines – one of which we designed and built from scratch – enable us to build most products from beginning to end. Our equipment includes: CNC Mills, CNC Lathe, Mill with DRO, Lathe with DRO, CNC break press, CNC high definition plasma cutting table, CNC Routers, Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Pick and Place Machines, PCB programmable oven, paint booth, and a huge selection of handheld and bench top tools. Our TIG and MIG welding capabilities are essential resources. Using all these tools allow us to build virtually anything in-house. SuperDroid Robots, Inc. has an extensive library of standard parts that can be plasma, laser, or water-jet cut. With any of our many CNC machines we can shape virtually any part that can then welded and assembled into state of the art robots.
Our biggest resource is, of course, our employees. In order to build quality robots, we need quality employees. Below is a list of our team. If you would like to be part of our ever-growing team, please see our career page.
Ours is the ultimate team sport. Meticulous communication and organizational skills - and a genuine commitment to innovation - are innate to our players. Years of successful custom development have shaped SuperDroid Robots into a company that consistently delivers high-quality, affordable custom robots.
“Innovation” is the one word that defines what we do at SuperDroid Robots. We create innovative robots and robotic solutions and we extend that brand of innovation to our service as well.
The SDR Mobile is designed to deliver, install, and service your robot on-site. This saves you time, which saves you money, which means you can focus on your business or project.
The SDR Mobile is fully outfitted with all the equipment necessary to install, test, and service your robot. You won’t need to send your robot to us for service; we can bring our robot shop to you.
SuperDroid Robots is the only robotics company that offers this unique and innovative level of service. Schedule a demo with us soon and the SDR Mobile will be on its way!
SuperDroid Robots Team
Our team of motivated engineers, machinists, fabricators, developers and marketers work hard every day to produce the most highly advanced tactical and inspection robots available.
Each robot we make reflects the insight and investment of our leadership. Twenty-eight years of management, design, operation, maintenance and fabrication experience in industrial facilities, machine shops, and production facilities are central to the SuperDroid Robots brand.
