    Robotic Machine Tending Overview

    Take your production to new heights by automating the optical manufacturing process with robotic machine tending. Robotic machine tending is perfect for optical manufacturers looking to streamline operations and increase production through “lights out manufacturing”.

    Relieve workers of repetitive tasks by taking advantage of the capabilities of a collaborative robot for robotic machine tending:

    • Automated pick-and-place of optics from part tray
    • Automated part loading and unloading of blanks and finished optics
    • Programmed cleaning of optics after grinding and polishing utilizing a custom configuration designed for your process

    In addition, certain configurations, including the unit designed for our PRO 80 machines, are portable and can easily be detached from the machine when automation is not necessary.

    Whether you need to fabricate precision optics in short-run quantities to high volume production, a robotic machine tending solution can be tailored to your specific application. Increase throughput, lower operating costs, and enhance your bottom line by supplementing your workforce with robotic machine tending.
