Collaborative Robot Drastically Boosts CNC Machining Productivity

By automating CNC lathe machine tending, one manufacturer increased throughput and freed up human labor for more complex tasks.

Integrating automation technologies such as collaborative robots (cobots) into machine tending processes provides several benefits such as increased productivity, and it acts as a revenue driver. Automating tasks also takes human operators away from repetitive, messy, and potentially dangerous jobs and moves them to more complex, value-added tasks, such as overseeing operations. For Swiss machine components manufacturer Jules Bertschinger AG, deploying cobots into the process did all the above.
