Material Removal and Finishing Robots

Have a part or product that needs a fine finishing touch? You’ve come to the right place! Our automation solutions and material removal robots cover an extensive variety of finishing applications. Nobody in the automation industry has more robotic finishing application experience or products made specifically for automated finishing than FANUC: From cutting robots and grinding robots, to deburring robots, polishing robots, sanding robots, buffing robots and more!

When it comes to the quality of your finished parts there’s no room for compromise. Whether you need robotic cutting systems, robotic deburring, polishing robots, grinding robots, robotic drilling or buffing your manufactured products or parts, we not only have a finishing robot perfectly sized for the application, we also have the technology required to put on the finest finishing touches. That’s because every FANUC robot comes vision and force sensing-ready; and our FS Series Force Sensors and iRVision robotic vision systems are designed and built by FANUC, specifically for FANUC finishing robots.

Robotic sanding, robotic grinding, and other finishing and material removal jobs can be dangerous and pose serious hazards to people’s health and safety. Using FANUC robots for these jobs improves safety by eliminating health hazards, while also providing manufacturers with a solution to labor shortage problems often seen in these applications. No matter how big or small your company is, FANUC and our industry-leading group of Authorized Systems Integrators for robotics will work with you to listen to and understand your robotic finishing needs, then develop an automated system sure to increase quality, speed and overall productivity.

Robotic Cutting Systems: Metal Cutting Robots, Plasma Cutting Robots, Waterjet Cutting Robots & Laser Cutting Robot Systems

Robotic cutting systems reduce cutting errors and product waste, while improving speed, precision and accuracy. Cutting robot systems can also be customized and pre-engineered with different robot cutter tools based on the type of product, its material, size, and the type of robotic cutting for your specific workpiece. FANUC will listen to your needs, then work with you to decide which cutting robot and cutting tool is exactly right for your specifications and requirements. Cutting robot systems also improve worker safety by removing employees from hazardous work areas.

Force Sensors for Craftsman-like Precision

FANUC Force Sensors enable robots to detect force and torque applied to the end effector, while controlling the robot’s motion path in real time to keep the tool pressed to the part with constant force. Robots equipped with force sensors can robotically deburr, grind, polish and contour parts with ultimate precision by compensating for dimensional deviations.

Robotic Sanding Systems

Robotic sanding systems give manufacturers the opportunity to improve the speed and accuracy for sanding parts while improving worker safety by removing employees from potentially dangerous work areas where dust and debris can pose serious hazards to a person’s health and mitigating those risks with sanding robots. Sanding operations that include robotics can be equipped with pressure sensing technology in order to achieve the perfect robotically sanded finish to your parts.

Robot Vision for Improved Accuracy

FANUC iRVision provides real time error proofing to ensure proper process and product quality. iRVision allows the robot to accurately find the part’s location relative to the robot and offset the robot path to account for part to part or location variances – A unique competitive advantage in robotic deburring, robotic grinding, robotic cutting, and more.
