Machining with industrial robots

Machining with robots instead of using a CNC machine is becoming an increasingly popular option, particularly for the manufacture of large and also complex items across a wide range of materials and applications. CNC Robotics has frequently been able to provide a more cost-effective robot machining solution than traditional machine tools. For example, milling machines used to produce larger parts in plastic, foam, composites and softer metals. In addition, CNC robotic systems developed by the company have been used to replace many hand-finishing tasks. Also machining with robots can often provide a faster and more consistent approach than manual operations.

A growing number of CAD/CAM software companies, including Autodesk, now support the programming of industrial robots with variants of their five-axis milling capabilities. The combination of the industrial robot along with the software gives the equivalent benefits to those gained when programming machine tools. This includes the ability to create toolpaths directly from CAD models, together with options to simulate and optimise the program on the computer. These options help to ensure that the industrial robot will operate efficiently and also safely. Furthermore, giving the desired productivity across all types of manufacturing.

The flexibility of industrial robots means that a single unit can be fitted with various heads and used at different stages in the manufacturing process. For example, in composites manufacture, one industrial robot can be used to create a mould or pattern. Similarly, to then trim the parts produced from that tooling.
