研磨/サンディング

Robotmaster can be used for programming the automation of sanding applications using robots, as well as polishing and grinding applications using a variety of tools and techniques including belt sanders, abrasive disks, wheels, laps, brushes and pads.

Advantages for polishing/sanding application

Programs for robotic polishing & sanding applications can be generated from the CAD model and subsequently modified with minimal effort to adjust for:

  • Change in tool shape
  • Diameter of polishing wheel or brush
  • Depth of passes
  • Number of passes
  • Automatically manage and change the distance between steps without re-programming the part
  • 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 robot reach
  • Joint repositioning tools can be used to easily control the robot configurations and wrist winding/unwinding for optimal polishing trajectories
  • Calibration tools that compensate for actual part setup
