Ultrasonic cutting head RC 590

Ultrasonic cutting of composites

Ultrasonic cutting to generate a precise cut with clean edges. Cutting is done without any pressure on the material. Process times are extremely short and energy consumption is low. The ultrasonic cutting head cuts virtually all composites (carbon fibres, glass fibres, aramid). A quick and efficient solution for parts such as profiles, stringer, or even complex 3D-parts.

Note:
In order to avoid a damage of the ultrasonic components as well as the blade during contact with a metallic underground, a thin (~5mm) span from special Plastic (PU) must be placed between the lower side of the cut material and the tool.

Tool changer:
The tool changer allows fast and easy interchanging of different end effectors as well as electrical and pneumatical  interfaces for specific signals at one robot stitching system.
One tool changer is required at the robot and one at each end effector.
