Paper Abstract

This paper builds on previous reported work describing the marriage of robots and CNC polishing machines, both for the pre-processing of parts, and to automate operations hitherto manually conducted on the CNC platforms. This paper reviews strategies for metrology, then takes the work a stage forward by reporting the use of a robot to automate the exchange of a part between CNC machine and metrology station, the probing of the part, and the capture of interferometer data. This constitutes an important step towards realization of an automated manufacturing cell.
