‘Deburring of plastic engine covers’

After the blow moulding process, plastic parts have to have pieces cut out of them accurately and often have to have holes drilled in them. The objective of this case study was to find an efficient automation solution for these tasks. The answer was found by Kuka partner Cosytronic, which developed a patented, float-mounted tool unit, which can accommodate various cutter blades, for example straight, concave and convex cutters for various radii. In order to make the cuts without creating burrs, the blade must always maintain the correct cutting angle and a constant cutting pressure. This is ensured by a Kuka KR 125 robot, which cuts pieces out of the parts and drills mounting holes in a single operation.
