Hey guys,

just need some recommendation, i would like to try  3d milling with my bot, but i cannot seem to find the part no where on ebay.
I'm looking a milling head (or module) for a fanuc robot. Not sure how it's called.

I've try milling head for fanuc robot but it doesn't give me anything.

thanks guys

Perhaps the phrase you are seeking is "milling spindle."  If you search eBay for "milling spindle" you will find many.
Those on eBay are generally for hobbyists.
Industrial spindles will be much more expensive.
I don't think that you will find a milling spindle specifically for Fanuc.
You must get a spindle + control + collet + milling cutter + mount + tool flange adapter (which is usually custom designed and fabricated).

What are you trying to cut? Material specs, thickness, length of cuts, and cycle time all help drive the tool choice. Once the tool is chosen, you can specify the spindle/motor to drive it.

You should start out with a softer material. Not metal. Robots are not CNC's so don't expect that level of performance.

What robot model are you using?

Hi HawkME,

a HUGe @$$ fanuc M2000IA the size of King Kong's (one can guess what).  haha i wish... :fine:

i small bot with with 10 lbs payload.

I don't think i can do metal like you said or if i can maybe removing 1/32 inch of the metal with a 4 flute at 24 000 rpm. And watch it do it for about the next 48 hours while a simple 5 axis cnc could do it in 10 mins.

I don't know what to do with it just wanna see it make a complex routine.

Maybe 3D wielding i heard that is a thing but the parts look horrible plus it takes forever to make then since you have to do it point by point in order for the new point to cold down i guess.

thanks for the advice -

You would be surprised with the right equipment how close a fanuc can get.

We machine up to 10mm thick aluminum with the F200 robot.
