ANCA’s custom industrial robot loader is designed to be a low-cost solution for tool loading. The robot does not have a separate, free-standing controller, instead using control software that runs concurrently with the machine’s CNC software. Operators perform the teaching using the machine’s operator panel and a handheld pendant.
