Originally Recorded June 23, 2021 | 2 PM - 3 PM ET

Watch this Webinar


Machine tending (loading and unloading CNC mills, lathes, drills, press brakes, laser & plasma cutters, 3D printers, assembly machines, dial tables and the like) remains the single largest application segment in robotics. It is the gateway application for most robot manufacturers and systems integrators, and has been a key part of the rapid growth of the collaborative robot market.

This webinar will look at the fundamentals of collaborative robots, key features that have fueled their rapid growth, and examples of machine tending applications ranging from simple floor mounted installations to vision guided bin picking with precision placement.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fundamentals of collaborative robots that routinely deliver one-year ROI
  • Emergence of cobot automation in small and medium enterprises
  • Next generation flexible & precise machine loading from bulk totes and bins.
