The machine consists of a Comau robot arm controlled by Sinumerik Run MyRobot /Direct Control and equipped with a single milling spindle to achieve excellent precision on complex 3D surfaces. Siemens Sinumerik is used to directly control the Comau robot arm, without the need for a robot controller, enabling increased robot and positioning accuracy while travelling along a path.
Collaboration between Robotics Benelux, Comau’s a official distributor in the Benelux market area, and its System Integrator CEAD Group has brought to life an advanced 3D printing and milling machine for manufacturing large fiber-reinforced polymer parts for F1 car components. The high on-road performance of F1 cars comes also from their aerodynamic design. The perfect shapes of their bodies are the result of high-precision mechanical processes.
