Metal processing with industrial robots
Nearly every metal fabrication shop has shavings of one type or another. When milling, turning or grinding, there is usually a CNC machine behind it and processes the components. So why do you need a robot? To insert the components?
Our robots impress with their high accuracy and rigidity. We achieve this in the MAX series through the secondary encoders, which are installed on all axes. The whole is controlled by the powerful Sinumerik 840Dsl or Sinumerik ONE from Siemens. With our MAX-100, we have already machined wood, plastic, carbon fiber, aluminum, and steel and have excellent test results to fall back on. The accuracy far exceeds standard industrial robots. This allows us to deliver excellent results in additive or subtractive CNC applications. Many of our delivered robots are in use as milling robots and machine large components where a standard milling machine would be too small. One possible application would be drilling, groove milling and build-up welding of large welded constructions. The procedure can be as follows. Build up the welding construction and weld it manually or automatically. Machining of the holes, grooves and threads in the square tubes. Weld a surface to obtain a reinforcement in this area. This surface is then milled and threaded. The advantage is a precise and automated production. There is no need to pre-machine square tubes for tapping. The positions of grooves and holes are exactly in position over the entire welded assembly, and the distortion from welding no longer has too great an influence.
This is only one of many possible applications. If you have a project or see a possibility to complete your production with one of our industrial robots, we are at your disposal for any questions.
