Industrial robots have been used to perform a variety of machining tasks, including drilling, routing, contesinking and broaching by serving to manipulate the machine tool. The advantages are the flexibility provided by the robot. By storing several programs, the robot can process a variety of workpieces in any sequence. Also, the dexterity of the robot arm allows it to reach locations on a workpiece that would be difficult for a dedicated machine.
