De-burr die cast aluminum engine


A FANUC M-710iC robot picks a Kohler die cast aluminum engine crank case and takes it to a tool tree. The robot manipulates the part through various tools and systematically removes unwanted features in the castings. Once finished, the parts are safe, easy to handle, have no sharp edges and are ready for the next step of making the engine. This cell handles both crankcase bodies and heads. It process 1400 of each part type per week.
