Precise thrust direction for milling applications

A milling robot is used to produce parts using the rapid prototyping method.

Wiest advantages

Customer benefits

Using a LaserLAB and tool:in, the thrust direction of the milling tool was determined with high precision within a few minutes. Manual alignment of quaternions is a thing of the past.

Thanks to precise knowledge of the tool and the object, the customer is now able to carry out rapid prototyping with the milling robot.


Cell description

The customer operates two lines for seam sealing, underbody protection and cavity preservation of car bodies. A total of 32 Fanuc M16 and M-710 robots are used on linear units. PVC is applied with SCA Schuker spray lances.


The customer wants programmes that have been programmed on one line to also run on the second line without having to make up for lost time. The reason for this is an emergency strategy: if a robot fails, another one will take over.


All 32 robots and linear axes were calibrated with absolute precision using loop:in. All nozzles were measured with the measuring triangle and tool:in. Using the base:in software and the LaserLAB on the robot, seven different vehicle models were measured and matched with ISRA.
