FANUC Robotics Authorized Integrator Weldon Solutions has engineered this compact robotic cell to automatically deburr small parts with the FANUC LR Mate Series robot. Compliant tooling, programmable FANUC robot path and an ID/OD gripper provide the flexibility to deburr a broad range of part profiles with a single machine.

This Robotic Deburring Cell from Weldon Solutions is optimally designed to create a small footprint on any shop floor, measuring 54" x 54". This self-contained, compact cell can easily be transported to a new location using only a forklift. The cell is composed of a guided infeed track, a programmable FANUC LR Mate Series robot with continuous wrist rotation, a motor driven abrasive deburring wheel mounted on a PushCorp compliant force device, and an outfeed chute. The system features automatic wheel dress at predetermined intervals in the production cycle, and a cycle speed as short as 10 seconds even when deburring multi-featured parts. The cell is surrounded by an electrically interlocked safety enclosure.

The Weldon Robotic Deburring Cell can be fed using a variety of methods including conveyor, gravity track, bowl feeder or pallet. Weldon Solutions can also design and manufacture custom infeed and outfeed equipment for the cell. FANUC Robotics Authorized Integrator Weldon Solutions provides customers with cutting edge technologies that increase performance, enhance efficiency and generate cost-effective processes in manufacturing and industrial environments.
