Depending on the application, two versions are possible:
A machining spindle is mounted on an industrial robot. The component is fixed into position and the tool guided along the casting by the robot; in so doing, removing the undesired burrs.
A component gripping device is mounted on an industrial robot, which
guides the casting past the tool to remove the burr. Several different tools can be operated within the radius of action of the robot. This variant is particularly suited to complex castings that require the use of different tools for deburring. This can result in time savings for setting up the tools. An automatic tool changer and a force-sensitive contouring control system can be supplied as options for both versions.
At August Mössner GmbH + Co. KG, the automatic deburring is controlled by freely programmable robots. The six-axis handling of the cast parts at different processing stations allows fine deburring, for example, of the separation burrs with high-frequency milling spindles or the deburring, cleaning and processing of holes and openings in multiple spindle drilling stations, which can be rapidly adapted, as well as the removal of burrs using a deburring press. Cast parts can be checked automatically at measuring or camera stations, and inside the part at endoscopic or x-ray stations with cameras.
Castings can be deburred and finished using the deburring center (Fig. 2 and 3, August Mössner GmbH + Co. KG) and secondary burrs can also be removed. The system is highly flexible and comparable to manual processing. New processing processes can be created and started within a short space of time. Handling is easy. The compact and space-efficient construction allows it to be erected even in compact and limited spaces. The deburring center is supplied as a complete unit with simple installation.
