CNC machine tools are big capital investments and the more time they spend cutting chips and making parts for your customers, the faster you see a return on your investment. Thus, maximizing utilization of your machines is critical to your shop’s success.
CNC Machine Tending is an application of robotics that allows you to automate the loading and unloading of your existing CNC machine tools or other production equipment like presses, sanders or laser engravers. Machine tending is a very mature application for robotics with a wide range of hardware and software available to accommodate your particular application.
