Automated Machine Tending

Automated machine tending solutions allow manufacturers to run machines autonomously, allowing for optimized throughput and increased quality.

Machine tending automation is the unmanned operation of industrial machines. The robotic tender continuously feeds and removes parts from the tended machine minimizing cycle times, whilst optimizing throughput.

The key to the success of the automated machine tending system is how the systems are configured and integrated. The connection of the machines together with the programming and fitting enables manufacturers to get the most out of their machinery.

For nearly a decade Advanced Automation has used its unique capabilities to develop and optimize automated, robotic machine tending systems. A typical Advanced Automation machine tending system incorporates a robot manipulator, an enclosure, a custom fixture to load and remove the parts, as well as any desired automated inspection, cleaning, or documenting systems.
