Machining

Robotmaster can be used for automated programming for robotic milling of simple or very complex parts. Ideal for milling of molds, patterns, plugs and parts using wood, polymers and soft metals.

Advantages for milling applications

  • Automated programming for robotic machining applications can be generated from CAD models and subsequently modified with minimal effort to adjust for:
    • Change of cutter shape
    • Diamater of cutter
    • Depth of cuts
    • Number of cuts
  • Automated generation of roughing and finishing programs
  • Memory management output for long programs
  • Tool orientations can be managed automatically to optimize the program for minimal wrist rotation and maximize robot reach
  • 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 tools
  • Calibration tools that compensate for actual part setup
