The Necessity of Material Removal Robots

Jun 30, 2014

Material removal robots are imperative for the manufacturing environment today. Pieces and parts would not be properly formed without various arrays of the material removal robots. One of the most common material removal processes is cutting to help create the perfect product shape.


Mate­r­i­al removal is prob­a­bly one of the most used and nec­es­sary group of robot­ic appli­ca­tions avail­able for man­u­fac­tur­ing today. While weld­ing and mate­r­i­al han­dling appli­ca­tions are nec­es­sary for mov­ing things down the line or piec­ing them togeth­er, the pieces them­selves would not be formed with­out the var­i­ous array of dif­fer­ent mate­r­i­al removal appli­ca­tions avail­able for robot sys­tems to perform.

Cut­ting is one of the most com­mon of all the mate­r­i­al removal process­es. Any work piece will more than like­ly have to be cut at one point or anoth­er to make it the right approx­i­mate shape for what­ev­er prod­uct it will become. This piece could get pressed in a mold or weld­ed to anoth­er piece or even fit togeth­er by an assem­bly robot, but it was that mate­r­i­al removal robot that first had to cut the piece and send it down the line.

But it isn’t all front of the line work for mate­r­i­al removal robots – they’re per­form­ing impor­tant process­es at the end of the line too. Mate­r­i­al removal robot­ic sys­tems are debur­ring prod­ucts to make sure that there are no sharp or oth­er imper­fec­tions on the piece, and pol­ish­ing robots work to take off all of the grease and oth­er grime that may get on a prod­uct dur­ing pro­duc­tion. These robot­ic mate­r­i­al removers are there to improve the aes­thet­ic of a piece. If a piece looks good, and all the pieces are prop­er­ly cut and assem­bled, that is half the bat­tle, and most of that bat­tle was per­formed by robot mate­r­i­al removers.
