Automated Support Removal & Finishing for Metal AM - Robots vs CNC
This article will address the transition to automated support removal (and finishing) solutions and consider the advantages and disadvantages of using CNC systems versus the versatility and reliability of robots.
Automated Loading and Unloading of CNC Machines
The camera control, which gives the robot the flexibility for an infinite variety of parts, and the EasyControl graphical user interface with its easy-to-understand input screens that allow users to automate without any robot knowledge.
Variance and Volume Advantageously Combined One of a Kind in Series
Up until now, users in the metal and plastics processing industries often faced a difficult choice: with CNC lathes and milling machines, one opted either for the largest possible variance or for large volumes, i.e., high quantities.
Robotic Plasma Cutting in a 3D World
ARC Specialties designed and built a turnkey solution for 3D robotic plasma cutting with the help of essential offline programming tools. With the right partners by your side, no challenge is too steep.
Oasis - Engineering Success With People and Automation
Looking at robots I wanted something adaptable, flexible and quick to set up. We could have gone down the route of engineering our own solution to hold the parts, but this was an off the shelf unit interfaced to our machine with an automatic door, and it just does it all.
CNC Vs Robot
What are the differences between these two CNC and robotics systems? What are their characteristics and how do you determine which one is best suited to the needs of your industry?
