Robots are everywhere we look in the world – from everyday interactions with phones and computers, all the way to the robotic barista or ice cream man. Cutting robots are also starting to emerge in more day-to-day activities.
Recently, robots began assisting doctors in major and minor surgeries because of their steady “hands,” which are several times more accurate than human hands. Cutting robots are now available to the public to cut the grass as well.
For now, most robotic cutters are commonly found in the industrial world. More and more manufacturers are moving to robot cutting because of the several advantages.
By automating their cutting applications, manufacturers are able to put out a better product with cleaner lines, and they are able to do this at a faster rate for the consumer.
Also, by employing these robot cutting systems, manufacturers are also able to raise the safety level in their facilities by moving human workers away from hazardous dust and particles released during cutting applications. This move also gives human workers a new skill set, as they get to learn how to run these robotic cutting equipment.
RobotWorx, an integrator of FANUC, Motoman, ABB, Universal Robots, and KUKA robotics, has several models of cutting robots available for purchase. Whether you choose the FANUC R-2000iB, the Motoman HP20 and the KUKA KR 30 HA, you will receive a top-of-the-line cutting robot that can perform applications like cutting paper, carpet, fiberglass, carbon fiber, sheet metal, along with several other materials.
While these robotic cutting arms are enclosed in factories for now, they may one day make the jump to helping people cut materials in the service industry, or in their homes, on a regular basis. Until then, cutting robots will stick with making sure facilities turn out a superior-quality product to the consumer.
