RoboCut Stone

Robotic milling system for 3D sculpting

Three-dimensional milling without shape limits. RoboCut Stone is a complete milling robotic cell, with sculpting robot up to 6 interpolated axes. An extremely flexible solution for: sculpture, design, architecture and furniture.

With RoboCut Stone you can perform all the milling phases, from roughing the rough block, to finishing the details.

RoboCut Stone for 3D milling of marble, stone and granite

The large range of the wrist and the structure of the robotic arm are designed to guarantee exceptional milling performance.

With RoboCut Stone you can perform all the phases of milling on stone, from roughing the rough block, to finishing the smallest and most minute details.

High-performance 3D milling robot with no shape limits

RoboCut Stone offers high milling performance on stone and flexibility of movement superior to any machine tool.

The 6 interpolated axes of the sculpting robot combined with the seventh interpolated and continuous axis of the rotating table, guarantee maximum freedom of movement of the cutter, to undercut and reach niches of statues and objects with an articulated design.

The RoboCut Stone robotic cells are equipped with “high accuracy” robotic arms which allow to obtain the best movement precision.

High power spindle for stone milling

RoboCut Stone is equipped with electrospindles designed for the processing of: stone, marble and granite; with powers from 12 kW to 14 kW and maximum rotation 24.000 RPM. The torque curves delivered generate maximum power at low revs, ensuring excellent roughing capacity and exploit the higher revs for finishing processes.

A standard version with direct flange connection and a version with automatic tool change with phonic wheel, minicoder and tool holder cones ISO 50 are available. Both restraint systems allow the main milling tools to be housed and guarantee perfect tool balance, minimizing vibrations during processing.

The water cooling system optimizes heat dissipation through a double tool cooling system. One with internal passage to the spindle shaft for direct refrigeration and one with four nozzles for indirect refrigeration.

Robotic arm and table

The worktop consists of a 1200 x 1200 mm welded and extended steel table which can be fastening or rotating (optional). The table can carry up to 1500 kg of weight and offers steel “T” slots for fixing the workpieces using clamps and brackets.

RoboCut Stone is available in one size with 2700 mm maximum reach.

Interface for machining control

XMC 5 Robot is the operator interface for SmartPad touchscreen simple and intuitive, which allows you to have under control all the commands necessary to pilot RoboCut Stone. Through the software interface it is possible to: import the machinings, analyze the project from the 2D/ 3D preview and start the machining. The integrated Analytics 4.0 plugin manages and processes all productivity and processing status data in real time.
