Robotic Spindling

Oct 1, 2016

If you are seeking a more consistent, precise, and higher product quality, than consider automating your spindling process. Spindling robots are the perfect choice for material removal, deburring, milling, or precise routing. They help the final product come up clean and uniform, satisfying the customer and keeping their loyalty with you and your production line.


Auto­mat­ed spin­dling can pro­duce a more con­sis­tent, pre­cise, and over­all high qual­i­ty prod­uct (com­pared to man­u­al work) for a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions. Spin­dling robots are excel­lent choic­es for appli­ca­tions such as mate­r­i­al removal, debur­ring, milling, or pre­cise rout­ing. They help to make work pieces clean and uni­form for man­u­fac­tur­ing processes.

Since the spin­dling process pro­duces large amounts of dust and par­ti­cles dur­ing the mate­r­i­al removal process, an auto­mat­ed robot helps to keep humans free and clear of the result­ing haz­ardous work­ing environment.

Depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic needs of your job and appli­ca­tion, there are a vari­ety of EOATs (such as the Colum­bo Pneu­mat­ic Spin­dle) and robot mod­els (avail­able from Fanuc, ABB, Motoman, and KUKA) to enhance your spin­dling productivity.

For instance, the LR Mate 200iB from Fanuc is a cus­tomer favorite. It is a very ver­sa­tile, com­pact robot that can be used for numer­ous appli­ca­tions, mak­ing your pro­duc­tion line more dynam­ic. There are a vari­ety of mount­ing options and it has the abil­i­ty to flip over back­wards, increas­ing its over­all work enve­lope. Addi­tion­al­ly, the LR Mate 200-iB R‑30iA can use machine vision for guid­ance and inspec­tion, and has high joint speeds that max­i­mizes through­put, sav­ing the con­sumer time and labor costs.

Motoman takes pride in their EH80 mod­el that is a mas­ter at tack­ling han­dling appli­ca­tions at high speeds. With an 80 kg pay­load, inter­nal cabling, and a huge work­ing enve­lope, it is hard to beat. 

The KUKA KR 60 HA (seen in the video above) is incred­i­bly accu­rate and made with fin­er gears to be able to pre­cise­ly fin­ish jobs in a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions. This mod­el can tack­le 30 kg, and the oth­er two mod­els can tack­le 30 kg or 100 kg! 

Anoth­er cus­tomer favorite, the ABB IRB 140 gives the pro­duc­tion line a mul­ti­pur­pose robot (IP 67 rat­ing) that can rotate 360 degrees with fast accel­er­a­tions and com­plete a large work­ing enve­lope. It can be mount­ed via floor, sus­pend­ed, or wall. This reli­able IRB140 robot is a tru­ly a great addi­tion to any facility.
