Machine tending is the process of loading parts in and out of a machine. Integrating an industrial robot into your process is a great alternative to machine tending by a human operator. Our 20+ years of experience of building machine tending solutions has contributed to our ability to maximize efficiency of your system by analyzing parts accumulation between stations, part traceability, automated reject part strategy, and error recovery.
