Benefits of Automating Your Material Removal Process

Streamlined Process

Eliminate ergonomic strain on employees performing dull, repetitive operations with hand tools

Employee Safety

Mitigate employee health risks from particle emissions (e.g. abrasive dust or chips)

Quality Control 

More consistent quality of the workpiece final product, time and time again.

Increased Throughput

Reduction of workpiece processing time and increasing machining capacity

Our Approach to Automating Material Removal

An integrated approach to automating material removal processes is essential for our team to achieve optimal results in automated material removal or robotic material removal tasks. Customization to our client's current process and workflow plays a pivotal role in this endeavor.  Incorporating an integrated system allows for seamless coordination between various components, such as robotic arms, tooling, and software. This synergy enables precise customization of material removal operations to match the specific requirements of each application.  This level of customization empowers our engineers to tailor these robotic material removal techniques, tooling selection, and cutting parameters to suit the material type, size, and intricacy of the workpiece our client is focusing on automating. By optimizing these parameters, efficiency and precision are maximized, leading to enhanced productivity and reduced waste.

Material Removal Testing

Partnering with leading manufacturers like Schunk, our team of engineers are able to test your material removal application completely free of charge.  Having a partnership with Schunk allows our team and our customers to gain access to an automation lab where we can put any application to the test.  Through this process, we are able to deliver a clear line of site into what your automated process would look like in regards to feasibility, cycle time, tooling needs, and return on investment.

Material Removal Automation - Common Applications

Automated Deburring 

Removal of burrs and chamfering of sharp edges after the actual workpiece machining is complete

Robotic Grinding/Sanding

Removal of coarser material or to prepare surfaces for downstream ­surface finishing

Robotic Polishing

Process to give workpiece a desired finish

Automated Sander Tool for Collaborative Robots

Complete electric random orbital sander for almost any automated surface finishing application, from sanding and buffing to polishing and cleaning. The Sander is available with everything you need to get started right away, and operates without external air supply, for no additional costs or complexity, and none of the dust or noise generated by traditional air sanders.
