As more and more manufacturers look to automation to solve labor efficiency issues, secondary operations such as deburring are getting a lot of attention. Often times these secondary operations are a bottle neck in the production process. This puts a real strain on operators to accomplish the work in a timely and quality manner. Because these are typically manual operations, quality and consistency can suffer. In some cases this is a small issue, but in others an entire shipment can be rejected which causes costly and time wasting rework – or even lost business.

Collaborative robots are a perfect choice for these tasks. They truly excel in handling parts at a constant speed while applying a constant force. Plus they trace a highly repeatable path every time. This allows operators to set up the work cell, make sure the operation is correct, and the unattended production can start.
