Machine Tending Robots: Machine tending refers to overseeing a machine while it performs a job, as well as the process of feeding parts in and out.
Machine tending can be dull and dangerous work that requires a high level of consistency. Robots are well-suited for this type of work. They tend all kinds of machines from presses and shears to injection molding machines.
Robot machine tending keeps workers safe from the tedious, injury-inducing jobs, raising safety levels in facilities.
Using industrial robots for machine tending tasks is a great way to add automation to a production line while decreasing part cycle time, saving our customers money while ramping up productivity. The FANUC F-200iB and the Motoman HP165 are available through RobotWorx.
