The use of industrial robots is widespread in diverse manufacturing fields. Hence, there have been attempts to use robot for machining processes instead of machine tools. However, limited machining accuracy has been a major obstacle hampering the adoption of robotic machining systems. Recently, substantial research has been carried out to address this issue. In this paper, recent progress in robotic machining has been summarized, such as kinematic calibration and compliance error compensation to improve the accuracy of robotic machining. Auxiliary units for improving the performance of robotic machining systems are also discussed.
