The purpose of the project was to improve laser welding procedures and determine if sustainable gear repair was possible using robot toolpath programming, digital twin, simulation, and post-processing.
The job shop manages small to large production run orders. Each cobot picks up parts from a bench, loads and unloads them from a CNC machine tool and places them in a box.
One application for which robot arms are well suited is using a kind of deburring tool as a cutting instrument when working with relatively soft materials like plastics and composites.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
