Signac™ – Maskless Robotic Paint System

Figure’s Signac technology provides robotic painting without the need for time-consuming masking nor stencils in the aerospace and defense Industry, significantly reducing time and costs, improving productivity, and expanding possibilities for concurrent work.

Signac is being developed in partnership with US Air Force using Aerospace Industry and Military approved paint including 2k paints like MIL-PRF-85285. Signac uses smart realtime controlled droplet deposition that enables precision painting.

Revolutionizing the paint industry one drop at a time

Our technology if named after Paul Victor Jules Signac (seen-YAHK) 18th Century French Neo-Impressionist painter helped develop the artistic technique  – Pointillism – Creating Masterpieces with 1000s of Drops of paint
