The SprayBug is a simple, rugged, and cost-effective way of traversing a thermal spray torch.

It is very important to control the gun with consistent and reproducible motion. This gun traverse speed control is important to control the coating thickness and the quality.  It is a safer way to spray parts.  The operator can stand back away from the heat, smoke, and physical motion of this equipment. This traverser is especially good for shafts that are spinning in a lathe.
