An Efficient Solution for Aluminum

Robotic Aluminum Cutting Cell

Vulcan has considerable experience in the integration and creation of unique solutions using robots for metal removal applications as well as highly efficient automated systems. We engineer systems that use industrial robots to automate common tasks such as mold handling, mold pouring, casting finishing, and casting inspection. We recently completed a project that incorporated a Fanuc robot equipped with a carbide tipped saw to remove gating from aluminum automotive castings inside of an enclosed cell.
