Robotic Material
Removal System

Overview:

Taylor-Winfield has a long and substantial history of providing the most advanced material removal systems to a variety of industries.

By adding this flexible system to your production facility, you can dramatically improve the reliability, repeatability, accuracy and safety of any deburring, flash removing, grinding, and/or buffing process to remove unwanted material. This system can include single or multiple robots and can be customized to your application and facility requirements.

Benefits:

  • Reduces operating costs by Integrating automation
  • Eliminates changeover requirements for one part configuration to the next & automatic tool changeovers between operations
  • Overcomes angle variation with real time flexible part verification through vision system identification and feedback
  • Laser sensor finds final part location and positions robot to maintain consistent cut penetration & depth
  • Analog force feedback device provides monitoring to ensure consistency of the cut and predict excessive wear of the cutting tool
