Kurt’s integrated custom engineered systems consist of automated workholding, fixturing, part conveying and gaging. A typical custom engineered system maximizes the productive capacity of today’s machining centers. The company’s systems include high density clamping fixtures with integrated robot arms for automation. This allows for automated part loading, machining on all sides of parts, and unloading and stacking of finished machined parts. The custom engineered system also includes automated part gaging for quality and realtime process control with complete part traceability. These systems can be designed to automate a single machining center or an entire cell of dozens of machining centers and support systems.

In only weeks, the company will research, design, develop and build fixtures, workholding, automation, gaging and data collection.

Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
