RX170 hsm: The complete solution for CFRP machining
The use of innovative lightweight materials such as carbon fibre is expanding rapidly in the automotive industry, but these composites have their own set of machining parameters. Stäubli has developed an impressive solution for the fast and accurate processing of composite materials with the innovative RX170 hsm machining robot and industry-specific software packages.
There is a huge demand in the automotive industry for fast and precise CFRP machining plants that are also easy to use, flexible in application and able to operate over a large working range. The RX170 hsm is the robot of choice to satisfy such a broad set of criteria. Indeed, Stäubli has opened up a whole new chapter in the precision machining of composite materials with this specialised robot.
Large workpieces can be easily machined thanks to its reach of 1,835 millimetres. With the addition of a linear axis, the working range can be expanded to facilitate machining of parts that are several metres in length. The performance of the RX170 hsm is ideal for machining fibre-composite materials. Its repeatability of ± 0.04mm surpasses the automotive industry specification for CFRP machining.
