Suhner Industrial Products now offers robot solutions for fully automated manufacturing. The tool system offers a number of machine tools that can be mounted directly on the robot arm and ready for continuous use, the company says.

The company’s power-pack robot machine tools are compatible with all robot manufacturers, making them versatile for demanding high-performance applications. This allows operations that were previously not suitable for automation, to now be automated. In short, Suhner’s line of robot tools are multiplying the capability of the robot.

Tools are available for brushing, polishing, filing, belt sanding or tool spindles and are easily integrated.

Applications for the robot tools range from automotive manufacturing to deburring operations, stainless steel machining to drilling and tapping operations and all areas of manufacturing and operations.

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. 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.
