Industrial robots have been employed for basic machining applications for some time, however in recent years machining with robots has fast become a popular way to achieve complicated parts without the need for costly CNC machines
Traditionally manufacturers would use CNC technology to produce their parts and in a lot of cases the user was paying high prices for highly accurate machinery when perhaps they didn't need it. So where tolerances allow robots are now employed to do these operations at a fraction of the cost.
Of course when asking if a machining robot is right for your application there are a number of factors to take into consideration
- What size parts require machining?
- How tough is the material?
- What tooling is required?
- How fast is the process?
- What is the working environment?
- What about waste?
- What about accuracy?
- What is the budget?
As you can see there are lots of questions that can help determine if Robot Machining is viable for your application.
Here at CNC Robotics we provide all the advice and support at these critical early stages to help make those important decisions.
