  1. 1. RobotStudio Machining PowerPac Increased engineering efficiency © Robotics - 1 -
  2. 2. RobotStudio Machining PowerPac Introduction Features Benefits Requirements © Robotics - 2
  3. 3. 33 years of robotized machining “The world’s first electrical robot sold in 1974 was for grinding and polishing of stainless steel tubes.” ABB was an innovator and has become #1 in robotized finishing We intend to stay as the leader IRB 6 sold by ABB in 1974 to Magnusson in Genarp, Sweden © Robotics - 3
  4. 4. Why is machining not fully robotized? Programming time has been far too long to permit frequent product changeovers Only large batch sizes have been feasible Difficult application with many parameters affecting the process result Industry tradition to use other machining methods Robot arms have not been suitable for all applications DEFINITION Machining includes: Grinding Deburring Polishing & Linishing Buffing Milling Sawing © Robotics - 4 Deflashing Sanding Etc.
  5. 5. Industry with changing values and demands End of an era - Manual Machining Beginning of an era - Robot Machining Inconsistent part quality, high Consistent high product quality scrap and reclaim rates Reduced tooling costs Hazardous, dirty work environment High availability High injury rate and long-term Safe environment with less injuries health problems Safe environment Low availability Attractive & rewarding workplace Difficult to recruit personnel Positive, high-tech image Low status Improved recruitment possibilities Labor intensive and expensive operation Long-term profitability © Robotics - 5
