A new machining cell uses a robot and linear floor slide to expand machinists work area and travel capability. The new cell is ideal for any customer needing to cut 5-axis large format items, say the companies involved, such as models, statues, stairway parts, or car bodies.

Kuka Robotics Corp., global manufacturer of industrial robots, will provide robots for Robotic CNC Solutions' new large format machining cell.

The new system expands the capabilities of the Kuka robot, allowing it to function as a larger CNC machine would, the companies say.

One Kuka robot can mill from one position 2, 3, 4, or more parts stationed around it. It also may load its own parts.
