A machine is a tool that is made up of several different parts with different functions. These parts are put together to perform a function by using mechanical power.
A robot is a machine that is programmable and can perform different functions depending on the situation. The robot's actions can be autonomous, meaning they can carry out a set function automatically once a program has been loaded to it, or it can work through an external control device providing input or instructions issued by a human.
Machining robotics is the process of utilizing robots and machines to work in tandem with each other to perform a specific function, or to produce a final product.
Robotic machining has been highly beneficial to many manufacturers worldwide in many ways and is bringing a major shift concerning how products are made.
Recently, there have been some reported developments in the robotic industry and special attention has been paid to machining robotics. Some of the examples are making mannequins and casting molds for bathtubs and hot tubs, engine block cubing, and rapid prototyping just to mention a few.
Machining robotics is taking the manufacturing industry by storm, especially in the manufacturing of large and complex goods made of different materials and different uses. They are leading because robotic machining is a cheap and cost-effective solution than using traditional equipment.
Machining robotics has been very effective in replacing hand-crafted, hand-made, and hand-finished goods, producing better quality goods, and are more consistent. They are also faster in producing a product compared to human labor using traditional tools and equipment.
Robotic machining as a system, and with a robot as part of the package, is cheaper, almost half the price of a machining center with similar capabilities.
Machining robotics possess superior rigidity of its tools, and this gives them the ability to be able to cut through harder materials and can work with better precision. They can produce the materials required by the manufacturing industries and can work at very high precision levels
Machining robotics has several applications. Some of them are:
In machining robotics, robots are used in industries where metal removal is required.
They remove excess metal to produce a complex complete part. Gear making industry is a prime example where metal is shaved and cut to create the grooves in which interlocking occurs.
Machining robotics robots can cut, bore, and reaming, and even welding depending on need. It is fitted with a special end factor specific to each job.
For each of the above different jobs, the machining robotic robot will be specifically programmed to perform that task.
Dangerous and hazardous fumes, gases, and the risk of fire are all associated with welding.
In the field of work, a human worker is exposed to all these risks and that poses a liability in the place of the company.
By introducing a machining robotics robot to carry the welding jobs, you eliminate all the mentioned risks for the robot of machining robotics cannot be affected by them. You will also achieve greater quality products due to the high precision of the robot. This translates to a better and longer-lasting product that guarantees sales and client traffic to your business.
By incorporating the machining robotics robot into your manufacturing process, you save on labor cost as well as boost production output.
In plasma cutting, a machining robotics robot is used for its high accuracy and efficiency as well as speed.
It is also preferred because, in the entire process, there are a lot of flying sparks and high heat produced which may all slow down or injure a human work, but the machining robotics robot is unaffected by heat, and it cannot be injured by the flying sparks.
Machining Robots are undoubtedly the future of the manufacturing industry. With that said, it does not mean that human workers will lose their jobs. On the contrary, machining robotics aims to integrate machines, robots, and humans to work as a team.
