“The CompactCobot has helped us to deliver a step performance change!“

The knowledge of wear types and wear behavior has enabled Element Six, an expert in high-performance materials, to deliver a step change in performance with a new PCBN cutting material. One decisive factor during the testing stage was the implementation of automated test series. This and the ability to measure tool and workpiece directly in the lathe has made a significant contribution to "achieving the performance increase we have set ourselves as our goal," Element Six says.

Robot-based measurement solution “Cobot"

Alicona cobots combine a collaborative 6-axis robot and a robust optical 3D measurement sensor to deliver high resolution measurements of smallest surface characteristics on large components. Components can also be measured directly in the machine tool with the need to unclamp. Interfaces such as TCP/IP, Modbus/TCP or Anybus enable the connection to existing production systems.
