Electronic control unit handles drilling applications on robots

April 3, 2014

Sugino Corp. has announced that its SSV2 Selfeeder™ servo series electronic control unit now has the capability to mount to robots for complex automated drilling applications.

The system features a high-power motor and spindle speeds from 390 to 20,000 RPM for small-diameter drilling in aluminum, cast iron, and steel. It weighs 33 lbs. within a compact 15.5- by 3.9- by 8.3-in. framework.

The system is suitable for automated robot applications in the aerospace industry and applications for which a hard-mounted drill does not apply.
