Many industries are being revolutionized by carbon fiber components, which are often used because they are lighter and therefore perform better. For many robotics and industrial automation applications, carbon fiber is a great choice. Cycle time and vibration are two of the main characteristics in industrial automation. This applies to pick and place robots, injection molding machinery and any other machinery in a plant that handles or moves parts.
Most of the time, when we talk about carbon fiber products, we are referring to a component in which a wide variety of complicated geometric shapes can be designed. These can be automated by a robotic system to obtain satisfactory and reproducible results.
The benefits of robots in industrial operations that have historically required highly skilled workers but are also hazardous to humans because they are so physically demanding and repetitive. Thus, even when processing composite materials, robotic automation provides a new and reliable manufacturing environment.
In terms of strength and lightness, carbon fiber is becoming increasingly important, especially in high-end items. Composite materials are no longer the exclusive domain of wealthy sectors such as the automotive and aerospace industries. Today, in more popular manufacturing sectors such as design and sporting goods, these materials are commonly used.
Due to the need for more flexible operations within a wider work area or industry, the use of industrial robots is a viable option.
What are the technological features of the high performance robotic milling system offered by RHTS?
We use the best HSD spindles on the market, made in Italy, ranging from 12000 to 24000 RPM, we use a tool station for faster tool changes and other tools such as touch probes.
What kind of software does our milling system use? And what technological advantages does it offer? We use Sprutcam. It is very easy to use, fast and we have created our post processor specifically for milling.
