Fabricating
FabricatingA robot can do a number of the required operations involved in fabricating parts or a product. Some of the more prevalent manufacturing processes being performed by robots are routing, milling, drilling, grinding, polishing, deburring, sanding, and riveting. Figure 7-12 shows a complex double-gripping process in which a hole is drilled and then deburred perpendicular to the main axis of the part. The robot also can change tooling, can change fixtures, and has an increased accuracy and repeatability.Improved sensory and adaptive control allows a robot to be used in different manufacturing processes. Robots have increased productivity and improved the quality of the parts produced. In addition, …
