The paper presents methodology for comparison of industrial robots used for high-speed machining. Particular attention is paid to the robot accuracy in milling operation and evaluation robot capacity to perform the task with desired precision. In contrast to other works, the robot performance is evaluated using an industrial standard that is based on the distortion of the circular shape. The developed approach is applied to four industrial robots of KUKA family, which have been compared with respect to the machining precision.
