Robotic Milling / Machining Systems

Robotic milling involves adding the flexibility of an industrial robot to replace a traditional CNC machining application, such as drilling, milling, routing and cutting.

Robotic milling can be found in a variety of industry segments:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Motion Picture Set & Prop Making
  • Fashion
  • Robotic Architecture & Civic Works
  • Robotic Woodworking
  • Furniture Creation
  • Robotic Prototyping
  • Robotic Sculpture and Model Making

SCOTT can design and manufacture custom robotic milling solutions to suit the individual needs of your application.

Milling robots are capable of producing the highest quality complex & unusual geometries and bring CNC type production methods to large scale fabrication and sculpting. Automated robot milling systems can have flexible tooling and cutting systems designed to cater to specific material removal methods. This can include Milling, Grinding, Sanding, Edge Trimming, Hot Wire Cutting or Hot Knife Cutting.

Milling robots can process a variety of different materials from alloys, carbon fibre, plastics and foams through to soft and hardwood timber and even concrete and stone. Any object of any size or shape can be milled by simply adjusting the robot programming and choosing the right end-of-arm-tooling for the job.


6 or 7 Axis Milling provides multiple redundant Axes of freedom, meaning that you can do anything a 5 Axis Milling machine can do, plus more.

Increase Flexibility – Robotic milling greatly increases the flexibility and size of the objects which can be machined compared to traditional machining centres.

Lower Cost – Robotic milling can be cheaper than an equivalent sized CNC. Larger work piece volumes can be machined for a fraction of the cost of a large CNC machine.
