Soft robotic automation, often referred to as flexible automation, is reprogrammable and reconfigurable. Robots fall into this soft automation category. This method is ideal for automated robots that handle small batches of product and product changes.
Hard robotic automation, also called fixed automation, is built with a specific production purpose. CNC machines are examples of hard automation. This automation approach is best suited for automated robots that mass produce the same product with few alterations or change-overs.
