The manufacturing sector has been supported by the machining sector, which includes heavy-duty machine tools such as lathes, mills, machining centers, forges, presses, and injection molding machines.
Manufacturers benefit from automating their equipment regarding usage, secondary processes, human resources, and productivity. Without automation, productivity and financial gain are potentially lost when a machine is unattended or an operator isn’t present to maintain it.
FANUC manufactures a wide array of robots for CNC machines to automate various processes, such as:
• Raw material loading and unloading
• Moving completed parts into post-processing
• Assembly processes both upstream and downstream
• Materials Handling
At ASA, our solutions are created to help you automate your machines with little to no downtime so that you can get the most out of them. You can also increase overall equipment effectiveness by assigning your machine tool tending robot to secondary chores while the machine is in operation. Automated machine tool tending increases the total equipment efficacy.
