In this webinar, Mathieu Bélanger-Barette our Application Expert, explains the principles of the CNC Machine Tending with collaborative robots. Learn how to succeed from our previous challenges and lessons learned.
The basic definition of tending is: the work of providing treatment for someone or something. In this particular case, machine tending would be to load and/or unload a given machine with parts or material. Currently, most of the applications involving machine tending are done by humans. Most machine shops are using their human workforce to load and unload machines and to restart the program once the finished part is out of the way. However, since qualified workers are becoming harder and harder to find, companies are introducing robots into their workshops to make up for the lack of employees. See our application expert Mathieu Bélanger-Barrette explain to you important notions in this webinar on machine tending.
