From manual to automated – in no time at all

Manual machining of workpieces with hand tools is often associated with putting ergonomic strain on employees. In addition, health risks are often incurred due to fine particle emissions such as abrasive dust or chips. Due to the change over to automated machining these risks are minimized, but also creates even more surplus values:

The advantages of a changeover to robot-assisted machining:

  • Consistent quality of the machining results
  • Increased safety and ergonomic working conditions
  • Reduction of the machining time
  • Increase in machining capacity

Robots can do both: loading and machining

Do you already use a robot for loading and unloading your machine tool? Then you can also use it immediatley after deburring the workpiece.
With the SCHUNK tools for automated machining with robots, a large number of deburring tasks can be easily automated, thus taking place immediately after machining with the machine tool. Take the opportunity now and reduce the lead time and production costs for your workpieces - and at the same time with a very small investment volume.

The advantages of using existing robots more efficiently:

  • Higher capacity utilization of your robot
  • Elimination of a separate working step
  • Reduction of the lead time of your components
  • Reduction of manufacturing costs for a quick return on investment

The right solution for any application

The new SCHUNK tools for automated machining

Whether for removing burrs and sharp edges, or for grinding and polishing large workpieces – SCHUNK offers the right tool for all machining processes. In addition to the appropriate tools, SCHUNK also offers you comprehensive support and services for other factors related to your machining process.
Let us work together to find the ideal solution for your machining task.

Deburring


The removal of burrs and chamfering of sharp edges after the actual workpiece machining is one of the most frequently performed finishing operations in the metalworking industry. However, this often very monotonous activity can also lead to injuries due to the sharp edges.
When it comes to deburring, SCHUNK offers a wide range of tools for respective deburring tasks. Find the right product for your deburring solution

Grinding


Grinding of workpieces is often used for removing coarser materials or to prepare surfaces for downstream surface finishing. With the right choice of tools and abrasives, different materials such as metal, wood or plastic can be machined with varying material removal and surface quality.
So that the workpiece is provided with an even finish. In addition to the appropriate products, SCHUNK also offers comprehensive support and advice in selecting the right grinding materials and the optimum process parameters. So you can rest assured that you are getting the right solution for your grinding application.

Polishing


Polishing surfaces is usually the last machining step, giving the workpiece the perfect finish. In addition to the tool and polishing agent, constant contact force is particularly important in order to achieve optimum and uniform polishing results. With SCHUNK products for automated polishing, you get stunning surface results due to the adjustable and uniform contact force.
In addition, we will be happy to advise you on further process parameters for your polishing solution so that you achieve perfect results.
