The Efficiency of Grinding Robots

Aug 12, 2014

Integrating a grinding robot onto your production line ensures that all imperfect parts have been removed. Grinding robots help to improve accuracy on the production line while also producing top quality products for customers every time. ​


The indus­tri­al world has been mech­a­nized for decades – robots are weld­ing and han­dling mate­r­i­al, but they are also remov­ing mate­r­i­al and mak­ing sure work pieces and fin­ished prod­ucts are func­tion­al. A grind­ing robot is one of the many robots respon­si­ble for mak­ing sure that work pieces have all of the imper­fect parts removed, ensur­ing that the prod­uct looks great for customers.

When man­u­fac­tur­ers invest in grind­ing robots, they are invest­ing in a piece of machin­ery that will remove weld spat­ter and oth­er imper­fec­tions with more ease than any man­u­al grind­ing appli­ca­tion ever could. Machined parts look great after robot­ic grinders use their accu­rate tools to take off those imper­fec­tions that could make a work piece non-func­tion­al. This accu­ra­cy ensures that not too much mate­r­i­al is tak­en off, which means that many work­er errors of the past are no longer an issue, and the amount of waste pro­duced by a com­pa­ny will drop dra­mat­i­cal­ly with the automa­tion of robot­ic grind­ing systems.

How­ev­er, it isn’t just about mak­ing a work piece look good. It is also about safe­ty. Grind­ing is a process that releas­es a lot of met­al shards and oth­er par­ti­cles into the air. Because of this, man­u­al grind­ing can be haz­ardous to work­ers, who may breathe in those shards, which can cause hav­oc to their res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tem. This could lead to work­ers who are not able to work, which could mean slow­downs or shut downs for the pro­duc­tion line. Robot grinders do not have to wor­ry about those haz­ards. They are able to go in and get the job done quick­ly and effi­cient­ly, improv­ing pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, while also sav­ing time and money.
