Cobot grinding for perfect Chrome

Use of collaborative robot technology optimizes grinding work

To achieve optimum surfaces, grinding of the components to be coated is often absolutely necessary. So is to achieve a smooth reflective surface, as it is usually desired in the bright chrome plating. Here then different abrasives and methods are used. In most cases this is done in a demanding and complex manual way.

At the beginning of the year, a modern COBOT (collaborative robot) was purchased to optimize grinding work. This met the requirements that we have set for this task. Flexible use, mobile use, trainable with your own staff - no high programming effort and with integrated personal protection.

With its own staff, this robot could then be integrated into a grinding plant. After a training period and the necessary adjustments, the plant has taken over the grinding work for a range of parts. The uncomplicated handling of the cobot also explains the high acceptance among the employees.
