ROBOTIC MACHINING AND MILLING

Milling robots are capable of producing parts with complex designs of the highest quality with CNC-type production techniques for the elaboration of large-scale sculptures. Robotic milling can have flexible tools and cutting systems designed to adapt to specific material removal methods. This may include milling, grinding, sanding, edge cutting, wire cutting or knife cutting. Robotic systems allow you to execute the milling process on a wide variety of materials such as carbon fiber, plastics and foams, wood, concrete, stone and marble. Any object of any shape or size can be milled by simply adjusting the robot’s programming and choosing the…

CAN THE MILLING PROCESS WITH ROBOTS REPLACE A CNC MACHINE TOOL?

The robotic milling application provides flexibility when using different tools in the 3D space, by producing parts of different shapes and sizes with lower operating costs. Robots are qualified to manufacture complex geometric pieces with higher quality. Automated milling systems can have flexible tools for the removal of a specific material. This type of automated robotics can process a variety of different materials, from alloys to plastics, and from foams to wood. There are currently industrial robots with a wide range of applications, such as handling, palletizing, welding, assembly, milling, casting, picking, pick & place, polishing, injection molding, quality control,…

ROBOTS FOR THE MILLING PROCESS

Recent developments in milling technology provide a high level of precision and flexibility. An industrial milling robot can shape any material regardless of its size, performing the right programming and using the end-of-arm tooling that suits the application and thus producing quality parts with a high level of detail. Industrial robots used for the milling process are based on optimal precision machining, in order to check product quality and make sure the equipment is performing correctly. The client is responsible for establishing these calibration parameters. This process is carried out through offline programming. This simulation tool allows for a more…
