Robotic Milling of Stair Rails - Courtesy of KMT Robotic Solutions


In this robot application case study, a FANUC M-710iC robot is used in milling complex patterns into a stair case rail using CAMpro software. This automated milling system was developed by KMT Robotic Solutions.

Tool paths are programmed on CAMpro software and then processed to be run by the robot. A user can work off-line to create the program and run simulation tests. The robot runs a series of passes from rough to finish taking off lots of material during rough passes and very little material during finish passes. The end result is shown after light sanding and staining.
