Sounds good!
If you order a new Agilus, note that there's a new version around that looks a bit differently.
So you'll need to decide between the risk of being an early adopter and the appeal of having the most recent version ;)

many thanks johannes. we'll most probably go with a kr10 r1100 and a simple spindle to start with. so all good.
all the best

Hello,

We did plenty of milling projects with an Agilus, though never with teak.
I'd say the limit is mostly the weight of the tool, we used a Kress 1050 spindle on it. So I'd look around on the net if anyone has used that or a similar spindle with teak.

Best,
Johannes

hi,
for those out there with good milling experience.
i want to buy the smallest kuka -ideally an agilus kr6 r900- that is able to mill hard wood such as teak.
can anybody tell me if that is a good idea? do i need to go with a higher payload? what would be the minimum? i don't really mind about the size of working envelope.   
thanks, best

From my experience the wire doesn't heat up in a completely regular way - as cutting cools it down as well - and foam can also be very different. So the approach for us was mostly just to start slow and turn it up gradually.

I am talking about both software and hardware.

What's an appropriate temperature range for the wire?  Haven't been able to find this info from manufacturers on the web.

Thanks.

Hello,
Are you referring to the software part or the hardware part?
Software-wise there's an example on the forum, for integration you don't need much more than a relay to enable/disable the cutter (which you could also do by hand). I'm not sure if people really use a PID or something like that to control the temperature, we usually just set the power and kept it there during cutting. But these are things you could do with a PLC, for example.

Hardware-wise it's not much more than a wire (e.g. guitar string, if you're improvising) and a power supply. I'm not the electronics expert so I'm hesitant to give any advice there. Ours has got a welding PSU with an extra transformator.
But I've seen people use PSUs taken from PCs as well, as an example.

And you'll need a system for keeping the wire's tension, as it gets longer as it heats up.

Best,
Johannes

I have got a few more basic tutorials, send me an eMail and I can forward them!
Best,

Hi Johannes

I'm also super interested in KUKAPRC and right now is struggling at the entry-level. Could you please send me the basic tutorials as well? My email address is joey@flexbot.cc
We're hoping to buy the advanced version after getting more familiar with the software. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to the detailed manual from you guys

Thanks,
Joey

Anyone successfully built and integrated a hot wire foam cutter from scratch?  Any good resources out there you can recommend?
