Closed-loop machining is an almost unused
method that represents an opportunity for machine shops in the coming years. The technique utilizes a machining element on the end of a robotic
arm that behaves much like the arm of a sculptor. Like Soft Robotics
the parts of
the arm need not be made with precision because the sculpting precision is provide by the closed-loop control enforced by the electronics (the sensing
Any machine shop with the help of engineering
services or in-house engineers can make it happen. The applications are very numerous. So are the opportunities for better cost competition and growth.
