Cutting material is a wide field for robotic automation. It serves a wide range like cutting parts to a defined length or shape or deburring or trimming parts after molding processes.
Robots do either loading/unloading parts to cutting machines or they handle the cutting tool directly. Cutting applications are becoming automated regularly these days. Mechanical cutting, sawing, ultrasonic cutting / trimming, waterjet cutting, plasma cutting, laser cutting – all types of solutions are provided by Yaskawa customized system engineering. Creative robotic solutions that enable operations to produce efficiently now and into the future. The cutting system consists of a robotic system and a handling system, and the main functions of the cutting system are classified as translation, orientation, alignment, and cutting. Yaskawa offers complete solution for its customers.
