Robotic Degating Automation Systems
Robotic degating is performed post casting on metal parts, and occasionally plastic parts. Degating involves removal of the “gate” or excess material from the opening through which the metal or plastic entered the mold. Robotic degating can involve saws, compliant finishers, or tending of trim presses depending on the amount of material to be removed and production volumes. Most robotic degating processes utilize part to tool based robot designs.
