A new automated trimming system from Rimrock Corp., Columbus, Ohio, is claimed to boost productivity and reliability. The RoboRouter 200 is described as a cost-effective alternative to manual or CNC router operations. The system uses a KR 60 sixaxis, articulated-arm robot from Kuka Robotics Corp., Clinton Township, Mich. It is mounted upsidedown on a stationary overhead fi xture or a linear track (which provides an additional seventh axis of motion). The robot has a 2429-mm reach and 60-kg payload capacity. The trim cell uses Rimrock's proprietary TrimWare software with a touchscreen interface, shape/cutout programming library, production statistics reporting, and part-variability adjustment controls.
