De-burring

Robotmaster can be used to generate a robot program for deburring rough edges of machined parts or gears, or for any other process that requires smoothing of edges or surfaces using a variety of tools and techniques including mills, rotary files, abrasive disks, brushes and pads.

Advantages for Robotic Deburring Applications

Robot programming for deburring gears or other machined parts can be generated automatically from the CAD model and subsequently modified with minimal effort to adjust for:

  • Change of cutter shape
  • Diameter of cutter
  • Depth of cuts
  • Number of cuts
  • And many additional
  • Ability to program and manage tool tilt directions for optimal surface contact increasing the surface finish quality and tool life
  • Tool orientations can be managed automatically to optimize the program for minimal wrist rotation and maximize welding robot reach
  • Joint repositioning tools can be used to easily control the robot configurations and wrist winding/unwinding for optimal deburring trajectories
  • Joint repositioning tools can be used to easily control the robot configurations and wrist winding/unwinding for optimal milling trajectories
  • Ability to program, simulate and use multiple robotic deburring tools
  • Calibration tools that compensate for actual part setup
