Tanker Polishing with Robot Slider
Tanker Polishing with Robot Slider

Polishing aluminium and other metals to a mirror finish is extremely labor intensive. There are several steps to the process and each requires a lot of pressure with heavy buffing equipment. Large Polishing jobs like tanker trucks or airplanes would nearly be impossible without the assistance of robotics. Our customer and RSI worked together to design an interface which enables operators to quickly polish a tanker by controlling the robots with an Xbox controller.Get more news about high quality robot buffing machine,you can vist our website!

Hardware Selection – RSI assisted with the selection of the industrial robots required for the application payload and reach. Two X axis slides allowed the robots to traverse along both sides of the tankers. Custom Tooling was needed to mount polishing equipment and force transducers.

Application Software and HMI Development – RSI designed an intuitive user interface using an Xbox controller; enabling operators to maneuver the robot tooling across the buffing surface and around obstructions. The PC based application included a semi automatic mode where the robot would “re-trace” paths to reduce polishing time.Our customer chose to use and Xbox Controller for this application as opposed to a teach pendant. This decision enabled employees to rapidly learn how to control the robot.

As specialist for the production of larger formed parts and complex welded assemblies made of steel, stainless steel and aluminium Kohl & Sohn GmbH places the highest priority on product quality. For the production of battery covers of forklifts, the company relies on automation solutions by CLOOS. After the components have been welded with CLOOS robots, another robot takes over the automated rough and fine grinding with a sensitive FerRobotics endeffector - the Active Angular Kit AAK and the Active Orbital Kit AOK. This process sequence ensures permanently high-quality results with consistently high quality.

Whether metal forming, welding, cutting, tool construction, measurements, surfaces or coating – with a wide range of manufacturing processes, Kohl & Sohn produces sophisticated components made of steel, stainless steel and aluminium. The company delivers complex welded assemblies or ready-to-install parts just in sequence directly to the assembly line. Whether components for agricultural machinery, battery doors and bonnets for forklift trucks, chassis for electric pallet trucks or elements for automated logistics systems – many customers appreciate the high manufacturing quality of the traditional company. Founded in 1897, Kohl & Sohn is the oldest company within Kohl Gruppe AG. Today, the group of companies employs a total of around 450 people at its three locations in Cologne and Slubice in Poland.
