A proof-of-concept machine has been designed, built, and operated for removal of excess metal from steel castings. The machine is computer-controlled and can operate on TEACH and REPEAT modes. The use of the machine is technically feasible and a time-study analysis shows approximately 20 percent savings in cut-off time when compared to the existing manual operations.
