Flexible automation of milling, grinding and polishing

"Changing or reconfiguring a robotics installation is expensive and time consuming"

Industrial processes such as milling, grinding and polishing have successfully been automated in the last 20 years (think of the car industry). However, the success is limited to companies that benefit from many-of-a-kind production. 

The reason is simple: Changing or reconfiguring a robotics installation is expensive and time consuming. Either you need on-site expertise in robotics, CAD/CAM and automation, or you need subcontractors with that expertise. Both limit the feasibility of current automation solutions for few-of-a-kind productions.

Our solution

CP Robotics combines both online and offline programming methods in order to create a teach-in of tasks that is quicker than if you would do them manually. By exploiting state of the art line scanners in combination with robot kinematics, we allow shop floor personnel to do fast and coarse programming of the task by simply sweeping the robot over the workspace. Our software then analyses the sensor data and generates precise robot paths.

  • Very fast online programming
  • Tight tolerances
  • High quality
  • High uniformity in output
  • Removes the need for expensive subcontractors or experts



Most milling processes require post-processing in the form of deburring. This can often be programmed directly into the CAD/CAM systems however, due to the high cost of a milling machine, it is more cost-effective to perform manual deburring or simply let a cheap and flexible robot do it.


Traditional machines for grinding are able to grind many-of-a-kind products. Few-of-a-kind production on the other hand requires the flexibility of manual labor or the flexibility of an easy-to-use robot with our software. 


Manufacturing companies, especially SME’s, have an increasing number of small batch sizes. Cost effective automation of polishing in these few-of-a-kind productions require fast re-programming and no dependency on external experts.
