Robotic Production Technology (RPT, Auburn Hills, Mich.) and FANUC Robotics America (Rochester Hills, Mich.) recently released six models of the AccuTrim robot, including a FANUC robot, RPT process tooling and a proprietary combination of software features and tools designed specifically for path-intensive, nonmetallic product trimming applications. The robots include quick Tool Center Point Recovery, Collision Guard (to protect the robot), expanded robot memory and feature accuracy enhancements. Three models are for waterjet applications, and three others are for routing applications. The models were jointly developed, but are marketed by RPT.
