Hi folks !
This is my first post here, and I'm excited to get in contact with the members of this community.
I have an architecture + engineering background, specifically in steel and wood structures and tensile membranes.
My robot is called Wall-E ; it's a KUKA KR6-Arc, and I have yet to fire it up.
I recently bought a KRESS 1050 FME-1 spindle with a mount from Damen CNC, and now I need to design the vertical plate that attaches to the robot's flange mount.
This is what the tool looks like from the KUKA|prc library :
And this is the Damen CNC mount plus the vertical plate that I have designed:
I was wondering why I should raise that vertical plate so high above the robot wrist.
Is it to protect the spindle ?
Is it to eventually attach another tool that would require this ?
Also, why place the tool so low ?
Is it to give a bigger clearance when milling in recessed areas ?
As I'm a complete newbie, any advice on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
