A manufacturer in Aurora, IL wanted to eliminate a worker from their bag dumping station for ergonomic and health reasons. The bag dumping station releases fumed silica particles that can cause irritation. RobotWorx
supplied the company with a two-robot FANUC
system to move and cut open the bags during the dumping process, thus eliminating the need for a worker to be exposed to the harsh environment.
