Problem: Our client, a designer and manufacturer of advanced technical ceramics components, needed a robot to tend to their ANCA CNC.

Our Solution: Our client’s CNC machine-created tools and cutter grinders that go into machine shops. The perfect robot to tend the machine was an LR Mate due to its compact design and sealed mechanical units (IP67). The FANUC LR Mate Series Robots mounting options allow for more flexible cell designs, a more robust work envelope, and the ability to run multiple robots nearby.
