Robot Deburring Cell
One of the most immediate benefits of robotic deburring is that it’s a much safer process. Workplace incidents are expensive. They halt production, potentially damage equipment and can even lead to lawsuits. Robots reduce this risk.
More importantly though, it creates a higher quality part on a consistent basis. Robots excel at doing the same task over and over without deviating from a preset course. This allows for unprecedented precision, quality and consistency in deburring processes.
The biggest benefit of robotic deburring is the increase in throughput. Robots are faster than manual processes, and they can work endlessly without fatiguing, only needing breaks for routine maintenance. This combination of speed and uptime leads to drastically improved throughput.
Automated deburring processes contribute to productivity and deliver ROI through safety and risk reduction, part quality and consistency, and exponentially higher levels of throughput. There are many different benefits that robotic deburring provides, but the ones listed above are some of the most important.
Many manufacturers see deburring as a difficult or impossible process to automate, but today’s robotic automation technology is more than capable of deburring products to improve profitability.
