The robotics and automation industry requires a wide range of parts made from both metals and plastics. Typical priorities for robotics customers include:
Below are some of the types of robotics parts we can manufacture for you:
In the robotics industry, most robotic systems typically require a rugged, sturdy frame that allows the system to perform a range of useful mechanical motions, such as swiveling, extending, or carrying out a specific task with its end effector. At 3ERP, we can use our range of manufacturing processes and reliable materials to make high-quality metal parts like frames, shoulder joints, and gears.
Many robots — particularly those used in manufacturing — have similar structures when it comes to parts like the arm and shoulder, but the end effector is what makes the robot unique and allows it to perform its chosen function. An end effector or end of arm tooling (EOAT) often requires several complex and intricate components that work together to allow the robot to grip, pick, cut, or do whatever it is tasked with doing.
As well as structural and task-specific parts, 3ERP is equipped to make casings, housings, tubing, and other important components for robotic assemblies. Made from plastic or metal, these important parts can be used to house structural elements, as well as mechanical and electronic components. Prototyping robotic housings can be achieved with low-cost processes 3D printing or urethane casting.
We offer a huge range of material possibilities with all our manufacturing processes. Some common choices for robotics projects are listed below.
3ERP offers wide variety high level surface finishes. We only list some of the common finishing options. There are more finish options for custom parts for Robotics Industry.
