Robotic Cutting Automation Systems
Robotic cutting can be performed on metal, plastic, fabric, & wood parts. Robotic cutting can be performed with laser, plasma, mechanical router, or waterjet technologies depending on part composition, environmental factors, throughput requirements, & budget. Cutting applications are usually performed with a tool to part based robot system design, meaning the robot is fitted with the appropriate cutting equipment & presents it to the part. Rimrock specializes in the application of automation in plasma cutting, laser cutting, sawing, & mechanical routing processes.
In some instances, such as for mechanical cutting of small parts, a part to tool based robot system design is possible. In those cases, typical end of arm tooling mechanisms are vacuum cups or pneumatic grippers, and selection is largely dependent on part composition, size, weight, & surface conditions.
