Industrial Robots in Precision Drilling Operations
Drilling holes can be extremely tiring and tedious work. Humans are more than capable of completing the task, but the amount of time that it takes and the effort of drilling hole after hole within requirements can get extremely difficult. Industrial drilling robots have been developed to help this complete tasks; such as drilling.
One of the improvements of drilling robots is the ability to monitor particular actions. Sensors on drilling robots help monitor drill speed, torque, countersinking information, displacement, and the breaking of drill bits. Without these sensors, it would be difficult to know if something is going wrong with the robot.
Aerospace, as well as many other industries, are fond of utilizing robotic drilling due to their productivity levels and precision holes. Many robots drill so the material of the hole falls outward instead of into a product or can be vacuumed out to prevent foreign object damage (FOD). For example, the nose-piece for aluminum has three large windows to allow chips to exit while the nose piece for composites has an adapter for vacuum chip removal.
An industrial robot drill can also be set to drill at specific speeds and torque depending on the particular material it is drilling.
RobotWorx offers many different kinds of drilling robots. Depending on the speed, reach or floor space availability, RobotWorx can help you figure out which robot is best for you. If you are interested in buying a driling robot, please contact RobotWorx here, or call 740-251-4327.
