Machining

Robotic milling offers versatility to create simple or complex parts of any size with lower equipment and operating costs. Robotmaster harnesses the full power of robots, without the programming complexity, by using a unique robot specific CAD/CAM approach to automatically drive milling robots.

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
  • Diameter 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
