Back to Aspects of Robotic Deburring and Finishing in Japan
Robotic deburring and finishing is a key technology providing advanced manufacturing systems for high-quality parts. Burr, Edge, and Surface conditioning Technology--Japanese committee (Best-JC) has carried out a survey on state-of-the-art deburring and finishing by an industrial robot in Japan to aid future development of a deburring and finishing robot. This paper describes the state of research and development work related to robotic deburring and finishing in Japan. Proposed are design rules for robotic deburring and finishing which are required for advanced manufacturing systems.
