DUO's robotic router trimming systemsare designed to help manufacturers cut more
parts per hour, reducing downtime and improving the employee safety. Selecting the
right machine configuration with proper routing tool & related process parameters per
mit to cut high quality parts at finished dimension within tight tolerances.The robot fle
xibility with its 6 axis permits to reach a part from different directions and its fast air
moves provide faster part cycle times than 5 axis CNC will typically achieve.
Robotic routing is a fast and efficient material separation process. The routing bit is set
in rotation with a high-speed spindle fixed to the robot wrist. The bit is driven through
the part along the contour to be trimmed with up to 40,000 RPM. The router produces a
very clean edge in plastics and composites; it can be programmed to cut through the part
or trim the material to a predetermined depth (blind holes and pockets).
Benefits of robotic Routing
+Will machine easily very complex contour geometries and cut accurate holes
+Router bits cut cleanly through thick materials without leaving burrs.
+Faster cycle time than CNC due to time savings with quick robot air moves
+Robots designed for harsh environment, better dust protection than a CNC
+Robots require virtually no maintenance as compared to CNC gantries
+A robotic cell requires much less floor space than a CNC Gantry
