Machine Tending Case Study
Published: January 26, 2023
One of the manufacturer’s primary goals was to implement a robotic process to automate the feeding of surgical tubing to a CNC lathe machine. The robot needed to be highly repeatable in order to accurately insert the part into the machine and the solution to be flexible enough to support multiple part numbers of varying length and width. Ultimately, the end goal was to deliver an automated solution that helped streamline operations while minimizing repetitive and hazardous tasks.
