Robotic cutting and trimming is a robot application where the material is removed to follow a predetermined path, for example, removing the excess from a plastic thermoformed part. Furthermore, as robots have very high path repeatability they can improve quality over manual trimming allied with an increase in production due to reduced cycle times.
Example of materials handled by robots is fibreglass, composite materials, metal (flash removal from casting) wood and foams.
Cutting robots serve a number of industries or sectors such as aerospace, food, automotive, environmental and others. There is a misconception that only large companies can benefit from industrial robots, but all companies regardless of their size can improve production by considering robotic automation
Benefits of Automated Robots
Industrial robots now have proven-efficiency in applications including robotic cutting, painting, welding, milling, materials handling and palletising, and more. Consequently, any manual processes can be automated to give improvements in quality and throughput.
