Futura Automation: Advanced Manufacturing and Machine Tending
Advanced Manufacturing & Machine tending
“Machine tending” is the process of automating the loading and unloading of industrial machine tools in a manufacturing plant, primarily using robot automation systems. While loading and unloading is the primary function of machine tending systems, the robot will often perform other valuable functions within the automation process. This might include part inspection, blow off, part washing, deburring, sorting, packaging and gauging.
