Material Removal

Increase Production While Reducing Stress and Injury to Your Team

Robots are used for cutting automotive headlining fabrics, trimming flash from plastic moldings, and polishing molds and stamping dies. Material removal is a helpful way to use robotic automation solutions to increase production, reduce stress and injury to your team and add long term ROI.

Material Removal Robots In Action

Trimming and deburring are more complex, requiring force control and often vision to handle variability in the size and position of the material to be removed. New compliant tool holders provide greater control over cutting loads and direction, creating a cleaner and more consistent edge. The robot follows a path resulting in better consistency than the most skilled operator, meaning less variability in parts coming out of multiple dies.

Robotic material removal doesn’t have to mean the robot holds the tool. Many applications work better when the robot holds the workpiece taking it to a fixed tool. This increases flexibility by allowing the robot to perform multiple operations.

For many manufacturers the biggest single benefit from using robots for cutting, trimming and machining is the ability to overcome a skills shortage. These jobs often have a high turnover, yet it takes time to develop the necessary skills. For companies who want to keep growing, robotic material removal is the way to go.

Drilling and Tapping

Technological advancements have made it possible for robots to quickly drill and tap 1-inch holes into steel with high accuracy. The result is a cost-effective automated system that can be justified with a payback of around 24 months.
