Automated Machine Tending for Quality Inspection

Optimizing efficiency and productivity is essential for maintaining your competitive advantage in today’s market. Manual machine tending is time-consuming, labor-intensive, prone to errors, and difficult for staff. Automating this process with a cobot is a great way to dramatically increase productivity, efficiency, and throughput.

Did you know that you can use a cobot to machine tend your precision measurement equipment? Automating this task allows for increased inspection of parts while not tying up your human labor that can be utilized elsewhere in your facility.

Check out this video to see a demo of a Doosan Cobot machine tending a OGP Flash 200.
