THE BRILLIANT FINISH OF YOUR METAL-CUTTING PROCESS

Our automated solutions for grinding, polishing, deburring, brushing and more deliver perfect results, every time.

Industrial robots don‘t care what time it is and don‘t take breaks or sick days. They simply work continuously and reliably to produce the maximum number of precisely finished parts on each shift.

ROBOTIZE TO THE MAX

  • Ergonomically Better

    Finishing tasks are among the most manufacturing‘s most challenging, often performed in dusty conditions while in uncomfortable positions and using noisy, vibrating tools. Having robots perform these jobs frees your workers for more productive and less physically taxing activities.

  • Consistent Quality

    Because industrial robots are highly repeatable and reliable, Fastems robotic solutions ensure that your 1,000th part is just as good as your first.

  • The Best of Both Worlds

    Finishing tasks are among the most manufacturing‘s most challenging, often performed in dusty conditions while in uncomfortable positions and using noisy, vibrating tools. Having robots perform these jobs frees your workers for more productive and less physically taxing activities.

MORE PROGRAMMING OPTIONS

We support both on-line and off-line finishing solution programming.

You can program online for limited and relatively fixed product families, however parts with complex geometry that require more frequent programming, may be better handled off-line.

FASTSIMU®, Fastems off-line programming software, can tackle these challenges two ways: A feature-based CAD model, and CAM-path based programming. Both provide quick and easy ways to create robot programs off-line while your finishing cell continues to make money.

robot brands

We consider ourselves as an independent integrator of robots and built solutions with all major robot brands.

spindle_1

PNEUMATIC SPINDLES

  • programmable compliance in tools for compensating differences, for example in part castings
  • each spindle has typically one tool
  • wide selection of spindles available for different applications
  • typically for applications where tool amount is moderate

robofin_3

ELECTRIC SPINDLES

  • one spindle can handle many tools
  • for applications requiring a large amount of tools or where new tool implementation is frequent
  • good spindle power output
  • traceability of control variables
  • programmable RPM
