CEAD AM Flexbot
A modular solution capable of combing multiple processes such as 3D printing and milling.
The newly developed AM Flexbot comprises Siemens Sinumerik Direct Control, a Comau robot arm and the single screw extruder unit from CEAD.
With Sinumerik Run MyRobot /Direct Control and Comau, the robot kinematics are fully integrated into a CNC system. This allows the required precision in the complex robot movement to be achieved, enabling both the correct material application and the milling of the component to a final contour.
"By using Sinumerik Run MyRobot /Direct Control from Siemens together with a Comau robot arm in our new solution, we can offer a modular system that can be adapted to the needs of our customers, as many different functions can be added at any time”
Combing subtractive and additive processes
The AM Flexbot offers the unique option to combine 3D printing and milling into one automated process. For mould making and tooling applications ideal to achieve the required surface finish and tolerances.
