The Robotic Arm and Milling Applications
 

Industrial robots are changing the face of milling.

Milling is a machining process that uses a spinning, multi-tooth cutter to remove material. Milling is the preferred method for prototyping and mold creation.

Up to this point, milling has been accomplished with special milling and CNC machines. But milling robots offer advantages over these traditional milling methods. 

  • Flexibility - The typical 6-axis articulated robot offers more movement flexibility than a normal milling machine. A robot can mill a complex part from multiple angles. Instead of having to reposition and re-clamp the prototype or mold again and again, the robot can remain stationary. 
     
  • Throughput - Milling with a robotic arm can increase overall throughput. A robot is more consistent and accurate. With fewer mistakes, and less time spent repositioning a robotic arm mills faster.   
     
  • The Right Touch - Many of the materials used for prototyping and molds are soft - clay, foam, REN board. A robotic arm is well-suited for responding to and working with all types of mediums.  
     
  • Affordability - Milling with a robotic arm is extremely economical. Unlike milling machines, robots can be reassigned to perform other assignments in a shop - arc welding, material handling, etc. They can improve throughput, saving valuable time and increasing production. In addition, a robotic arm can handle more of the milling task without needing human intervention.
