Additive manufacturing

Additive printing with robots – additive manufacturing is where a CAD/CAM System uses a system of layering to create an object. It is sometimes referred to as 3D printing with robots, where a physical object is made from a design. CAD/CAM software creates the design image. It is then sliced into layers and added on top of each other to create the desired shape.

Robotics-driven additive manufacturing uses a robotic arm to produce the layers and shape the object, allowing for manufacturers to develop the potential to produce a lighter, more robust, and also more durable part with faster build times.

Robot driven additive manufacturing is starting to change the production process as more complex designs can now be produced without the need for multiple part-specific tooling, which can be very costly. Additive manufacturing, in comparison to other production methods can produce less waste. This brings the added benefit of a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.

CNC Robotics has experience in a diverse range of applications and systems can now offer robot-driven additive manufacturing where the additive manufacturing head is applied to a robotic arm, offering an alternative to traditional tools or manual processes. Robot aided additive manufacturing gives users the ability to produce large objects and merge this with other processes.

Additive manufacturing is changing the way things are made. Robotics driven additive manufacturing allows for more complex builds with the potential for faster build times. Different material options are available with additive manufacturing so you can choose the best and most upmost up-to-date materials to suit your needs.
