The Touch Robot excels in metal finishing applications, especially those where the precision of a robot is needed with the adaptability of a person. The Touch Robot is able to handle more aggressive tools than the average operator can handle as a result of its superior control. This allows workers to focus on inspection and fine finishing, instead of spending time doing repetitive, heavy material removal.
The capabilities of the Touch Robot have been growing since its inception. Currently, the robot blends away surface positives without removing adjacent surface material, clears core exits, removes die parting lines, grinds gates, and shapes edges. The Touch Robot’s responsive control of contact forces make it adaptable to wide variation safe to work around, and applicable to a myriad of manual repetitive tasks.
