    On account of their mechanical structure and the consequent lower stiffness as compared with machine tools, robots cannot replace machine tools. But robots can intelligently supplement machine tools and reduce the load on them by taking over simpler tasks with lower performance requirements such as drilling, deburring and milling. At the same time, their large work envelope and comparatively low costs really come to the fore. For 3D printing or additive manufacturing, the limitations presented by the robot's lower stiffness are eliminated almost completely. No external forces act on the robot. For many years now, robots have been used in applications such as laser cutting and laser welding. This experience can be applied to 3D printing.
