End-of-arm tooling makes the difference for robotic debur technology

Sep 17, 2013

For robotic deburring technology, specific end of arm tooling makes a huge difference. All it takes is a quick end effector change for robots for a new deburring process. It is important to understand the technology that you need on your deburring production line.


There are many uses for robot­ic debur­ring tech­nol­o­gy in the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try today. Some robots debur small parts, while oth­ers debur larg­er parts, using vision tech­nol­o­gy. Fanuc Robot­ics, a leader in indus­tri­al robot­ics, is lead­ing the way in the newest robot­ic debur technology.

Fanuc has many robots that are well-suit­ed for debur­ring, as well as oth­er mate­r­i­al removal appli­ca­tions. It is the end-of-arm tool­ing used that real­ly makes the dif­fer­ence in what is deburred. Many robots are flex­i­ble to debur sev­er­al dif­fer­ent items with a quick change of end effector.

The Fanuc M series spi­der robots uses a small pneu­mat­ic debur­ring tool that is pre­cise enough to remove nicks from a small set of fan blades and oth­er small parts. It is impor­tant to research the prop­er debur­ring robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy avail­able before using an end effec­tor for a job like this. Some­thing too abra­sive may dam­age small parts. On the oth­er hand, some­thing too small may be inef­fec­tive on larg­er parts.

By using spi­der robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy to debur, this small fan blade can be moved around at dif­fer­ent angles, allow­ing for effec­tive, accu­rate debur­ring of all sides.For larg­er debur­ring, robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy has trend­ed toward vision and sen­sor tech­nol­o­gy. Fanuc uses L series robots for these larg­er pieces. Debur­ring robot tech­nol­o­gy from Fanuc has devel­oped sen­sors that allow robots to debur inside of objects, as well as out­side. By devel­op­ing these kinds of inno­va­tions, robot debur­ring techonol­o­gy can offer man­u­fac­tur­ers the flex­i­bil­i­ty to debur many dif­fer­ent kinds of items, big and small, which saves man­u­fac­tur­ers mon­ey on extra equipment.
