Machine Tending

Why robotic machine tending?

 

Machine tending is the process of supervising a machine and feeding parts into and out of it. For humans, this task can be dangerous, dull, repetitive, and can lead to job dissatisfaction. Skilled employees are often required to perform repetitive, low-value tasks, such as manually loading and unloading machines, up to hundreds or thousands of times per month. Furthermore, production schedules are forced to adapt to unforeseen employee absences leading to inefficient or underutilized machine time and lower overall productivity.
 

To automate the machine tending process, robots can be easily programmed to load raw parts into a machine, remove the finished parts, and perform a number of peripheral manipulation tasks. These tasks may include identifying and arranging parts, loading a buffer station, trimming parts, and performing maintenance routines. Robots can better manage long production runs and work 24/7 to meet variable demand, provide more consistent results, and yield higher throughput.
