Press tending used to be a taxing, dangerous post. Loading and unloading parts from a press, operating the machine, and maintaining consistency with every part proved to be tedious work. Robots have changed this. They have taken over the job of placing blanks into press machines the same way every time. They are faster, more productive, and less likely to make mistakes.
Robot press tending goes beyond simply moving parts in and out of machines. Robots can move parts around to three or four dies within the same press. Robots are also useful in rotating, flipping and tilting a part between press operations.
