Low cutting forces reduce vibrations in the whole system
Delamination-free trimming of CFRP parts on robots
The machining on robots reduces machine costs
The further spreading of complex CFRP parts in industry depends greatly on how these parts can be machined costeffectively. Various research projects are already investigating which machining method is the best solution here. In one joint project focussing on the possibilities of producing and machining CFRP parts with robots, MAPAL is responsible for the machining tools.
MAPAL milling tools meet demands of robot production
Due to their large number of interacting axes, robots cannot be compared with machining centres with respect to stability, precision and vibration behaviour during machining. These boundary conditions therefore have to be taken into consideration during the development of the tools.
For these machining applications, MAPAL off ers special milling tools that work with very low cutting forces and therefore transmit minimum vibrations to the whole system. They are particularly suitable, for example, for the trimming of CFRP parts using robots.
