Hello There ! I have a deburring application for an Aluminum - transmission case . Need your suggestion on the following two main points :- 1) how to select a tool for this application. How tool wear and variation in flashes / burrs in Die casting input parts be taken care. If that is to be controlled thru robot programming or the tool thru some auto compensation feature. 2. Which option is better :- a) Component on the robot and Deburring tool fixed. b) Deburring tool on robot and part clamped on a jig/fixture. Kindly share pros and cons of both configurations mentioned in a) and b) This will help me great deal to reach a final decision. the robot here is Fanuc M-710iC / 70 Do you supply and support in Indian Market for integration and commissioning . waiting for your reply. Thank you in advance. Regards, Amit Balyan
Hello Amit, Thank you for your questions. 1)As was pointed out by Johnathan, there are a few different technologies out there which can be deployed in your application. F/T sensors require programming to take the data and apply it within your robot's programmed path to get the results you desire. Passive compliance devices and closed loop active compliance devices rely on a slide mechanism (typically electro-pneumatic) to control the force being exerted on the part by the cutter or media within a compliant stroke stroke built into the device. The difference here is that with the F/T you need to manipulate the position of the robot NRT and with a passive/active slide device the robot path in most cases can remain constant and the compliance device adjusts for force,wear in the tool and differences in the part. See this video for an example of active compliance in an engine deburring application: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uzrGi4zILg.Send me an email 4 Q2. BR, Max Falcone
