Directory:Rimrock Automation/Robotic Buffing Automation
Robotic buffing can be performed on metal, plastic, & wood parts. Robotic buffing applications are usually performed with a part to tool based robot system design, meaning the robot holds the part & presents it to buffing machinery. Typical end of arm tooling mechanisms include vacuum cups or pneumatic grippers, and is largely dependent on part size, weight, & surface conditions.
In some instances, such as for large & heavy parts, a tool to part based robot system design is necessary.
