ABB Robotics’ FlexLoader FP 300 and SC 3000 machine tool tending cells each feature a six-axis robot customized to the reach and payload requirements of specific applications. The company’s Integrated Vision module enables automated tending of parts that range in size from small to very large, which increases machine tool use while reducing operating costs. The cells are suitable for both low- and high-volume production and for tending vertical lathes, horizontal and vertical machining centers, five-axis machines, and grinders.
