High-precision Milling Robot Arm with Secondary Encoders for innovative Manufacturing

MABI Robotic proudly presents its highly specialized portfolio of milling robots, linear axes and rotary tilt tables equipped with secondary encoders on all axes. This pioneering technology gives MABI Robotic's industrial robots unrivaled accuracy and increased rigidity, making them ideal companions for additive and subtractive CNC applications.

At the center of our product range are the MAX robots, which are offered in various sizes and are continuously being further developed. The MAX-100-2.25-P robot arm, currently the smallest version of the MAX series, is the cornerstone for outstanding precision, impressive payload and reach. Our milling robots set standards in terms of performance, so that companies that previously had to work with sub-optimal robots can now benefit from our high-performance products.

The consistently high accuracy that has become standard at MABI Robotic has allowed us to appeal to numerous companies looking for more precise solutions. The continuous expansion and improvement of our product range is based on the valuable feedback and specific requirements of our customers. This allows us to cover a wider range of applications and always offer you the most suitable product for your individual project.

You can already look forward to our next innovation in the field of milling robots. The MAX-200-2.5-P robotic arm, which is already in development and production, will usher in a new era of precise heavy-duty robots. From the fourth quarter of 2024, this impressive model will be available to meet even the most demanding requirements in industrial manufacturing. We will be happy to meet you in person at our company or over the phone to provide you with comprehensive advice and explain the benefits of our high-precision milling robots and robotic arms.

Frequently asked questions

How does the MABI robot arm with secondary encoder differ from other robots on the market?

The MABI robot arm was developed for milling processes and should therefore have a high level of accuracy. Milling robots from other manufacturers are often converted standard products, which is why they lag behind in terms of accuracy and rigidity. The milling robots from the MAX series are designed to absorb the process forces of milling operations. When compared with similar robots, the differences lie primarily in the high-precision kinematics, the increased rigidity, the use of secondary encoders and the CNC control. Another difference lies in the factory calibration with a measurement protocol specially developed for the milling robots. The system can also be supplied "ready to run".


In which areas of application can MABI milling robots be used?

Our robot arms have been developed for precise machining processes. Materials that are processed by MABI robots are wood, aluminum, steel and CFRP. We can test other materials you require. Due to its precision, the milling robot can of course also be used in other areas. A large area of application is in additive manufacturing. For example, the robot arm can be used to switch between a laser deposition welding head and a milling spindle. This means that work processes can be carried out with one robot arm instead of two machines. At the moment, many of our milling robots are used in companies that have to machine large components, such as in the aviation or automotive industries. Perhaps you have a new area of application for our milling robots. We will be happy to support you in clarifying your application.


Why is the integration of a secondary encoder in a robot arm crucial for precise and reliable industrial processes?

Standard robotic systems usually use a single encoder mounted on the motor. The encoder provides speed and position feedback to the controller. This gives us precise position information from the drive side. Due to the backlash of the gears, there is a small deviation on the output side, which increases with each additional axis. To increase the accuracy of the milling robots, the output side is measured with a second encoder. This allows the difference caused by backlash etc. to be readjusted. A secondary encoder and high-precision kinematics are therefore required for an accurate robot arm.
