Can robots be a help at the workbench?

We have tested a current, modern robotic arm from the class of cooperation-enabled assistant robots : UR10 from Universal Robots. This robot was provided to us by the company MultiProfil GmbH from Verl/Kaunitz. We would like to thank them for their friendly and trustful cooperation.

For testing, we selected a simple machining task. Flush milling and rounding of a 2mm ABS edge on a rectangular workpiece.


Positives: The UR 10 robot can be used without any further mechanical aids groping! milling. For this purpose, the radial and axial contact with the workpiece takes place in the so-called FORCE command.

Negative: The smoothness of the feed and the guidance of the milling cutter does not have the necessary precision. Pre-milling is possible, finish milling is currently only possible with limited quality.


For Joineries and special construction departments with a high number of variants and low quantities will be used for special processing tasks in the foreseeable future. there is no economically viable alternative to the human-operated tool.

If the number of units becomes larger, for example in subcontracting companies, both the programming and the operation of robots will come closer to economic use than is currently generally perceived.

It is therefore worth investigating possible applications here. These could be handling, palletizing or loading tasks, possibly combined with milling strategies for medium and low quality requirements.
