Suhner Industrial Products (Rome, GA) now offers robot solutions for fully-automated manufacturing. The new quick change tool system offers a number of powerful machine tools that can be mounted directly on the robot arm and are ready for continuous use. The Suhner power-pack robot machine tools are compatible with all robot manufacturers, making them versatile for demanding high-performance applications. The tools feature the following:
- Programmable touch forces of the active flange and interactive surface tracking. This allows operations that were previously not suitable for automation, to now be automated.
- Programmable process forces, balanced tolerances (shapes) and reduced programming time and effort for complex parts. Performance and process assurance compared to known systems, such as load cells, can be drastically increased.
- Tools available for brushing, polishing, filing, belt sanding or tool spindles, and are easily integrated.
Applications for the new robot tools range from automotive manufacturing to deburring operations, stainless steel machining to drilling and tapping operations, and all areas of manufacturing and operations.
