Rivelin Robotics, a provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) post-processing solutions, is set to showcase its automated NetShape Robot technology at the upcoming Automatica event taking place from 27 to 30 June in Munich, Germany. 

The 2023 edition of Automatica, an international trade fair for automation and robotics, will open its floors to Rivelin Robotics’ solutions intended for casting deburring and polishing, metal AM post-processing, weld bead cleanup, and weld repair.

During the four-day event, the Rivelin team will be present at the event alongside its partner Yaskawa Europe, who will host them in its headline booth B6.502, to demonstrate the innovative capabilities of NetShape Robots. 

Visitors to the booth will be able to view a fully functional NetShape automation cell, which is an enclosed micro factory that combines an industrial Yaskawa robot with a variety of tools, sensors, and processes to ensure dexterity, all of which are controlled by the robust NetShape control software created by Rivelin. 

The intelligent software optimises the precision and reproducibility of support removal and finishing using both machine learning and conventional deterministic control theory, according to Rivelin.  

The end result is an automated support removal and finishing solution that eliminates human risk and unpredictability, significantly lowers operational costs, and decreases part defects by up to 90 per cent.

Additionally, attendees will have the chance to discuss their own unique applications with Rivelin Robotics experts and learn more about the advantages of NetShape Robots for a metal part production line, both in terms of automation and final product.

“We are thrilled to be exhibiting at Automatica 2023,” said Robert Bush, CEO of Rivelin Robotics.

He added, “This event provides a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase the NetShape Robots and their capabilities for automated post-processing of metal parts to a global audience and connect with industry leaders and potential customers.”

Richard Tontsch, marketing manager of the Robotics Division from Yaskawa Europe, further commented that having Rivelin Robotics and its NetShape robotics system at Automatica will allow the company to showcase a highly innovative application with one of its robots.

“Since 3D printing of parts will continue to grow in importance as a manufacturing process, highlighting the automated post-printing options that are available with a robot is a topic that we believe will attract a great deal of interest on our stand during the event,” Tontsch noted. 

Attendees of Automatica 2023 are invited to visit Rivelin Robotics at booth #502 in Hall B6 to learn more about the company’s NetShape Robots.
