Machine Tending Automation.
Machine tending is the process of automatically interacting with fabrication machines to safely and repeatably load and unload parts. Machine tending equipment is commonly found in combination with CNC machines, presses, injection molding machines, de-panel machines, and many others. In many cases, machine tending automation can be designed to tend multiple machines, accelerating return on investment. It is also common for vision guidance to be used with machine tending automation, which greatly expands the capability and functionality of the machine tending system. Adaptive’s extensive machine vision experience makes this a seamless addition to our machine tending solutions.
