PreMac

Increasing competitiveness by robot machining.

The conclusion of the latest research is that robot machining generally is too unprecise to machine complete parts within the required tolerances. Thus, the project PreMac seeks to investigate if part of the roughing process can be machined with a robot and then finished in a traditional CNC machine. The aim is to reduce the total production cost. A robot arm is cheaper and more flexible than a conventional CNC machine and thus reducing the total cost of milling a part.

The main purpose of the project is to gather knowledge and conduct experiments to determent whether an economical benefit can be achieved when machining with a robot, towards implementing robot machining.
