Router trimming for large parts.
Robotic Production Technology (RPT) introduced its RoboTrim RT-500
router trimming system at the recent SPE Thermoforming Conference in
Nashville, Tenn. Designed specifically to trim large thermo-formed,
injection-molded, blow-molded, rotational-molded, or composite parts,
the system provides the ability to trim 60- x 60- x 60-inch parts with
the flexibility of a six-axis robot, according to the company. In
addition to a servo-controlled rotating table, full safety enclosure
with automatic sliding front doors, and a full complement of safety
equipment, the RT-500 features the new six-axis RPT AccuTrim R-110 robot
equipped with a 10-hp spindle, automatic tool-change capabilities,
Fanuc's new R-J3iC controller, and RPT's
"RouterWare" and "System Calibration Tools"
System Calibration Tools software--composed of TCPCal (automatic
spindle alignment software), RobotCal (robot mastering software), and
CellCal (automatic fixture setup software)--allows the set-up and
maintenance of the key components required to achieve consistently high
part quality with minimal setup time, according to the company.
