How Machine Tending Works

RobotAt its core is a standard robotic arm coupled to a machine vision system. These two are affixed to a rugged, self-contained structure that features expansion bays which could be filled with off-machine operations. Working in tandem with the robotic arm, machine vision system is trained to recognize and identify specific workpieces, their location and attitude. Contact Us Learn How Machine Tending Works
