Automating the machine tending function

22 August 2022

The Robotiq Machine Tending Solution is the latest in a series of off-the-shelf kits that has allowed RARUK Automation to offer manufacturers an easy automated solution to undertake common tasks and boost productivity.

The Robotiq Machine Tending Solution can be applied to any brand or type of CNC machine without any modification. Instead of hard-wiring the machine, as is required with traditional automation, non-invasive modules manage communication with the machine‚Äôs interface, greatly reducing deployment time.  Indeed, installation is so easy, it can be done by a non-certified technician.

The Machine Tending Copilot software guides the set-up process, starts the machine cycle, monitors its status and controls workholding. It also allows programmes to be created up to 75% quicker than by traditional programming thanks to key waypoint setting and simple action menus. Movement between key waypoints is optimised so the best path through the pre-defined work area is followed, automatically avoiding collisions.

The core Robotiq Machine Tending Solution comprises the Machine Tending Copilot software, the Robotiq MT control, pneumatic panel, button activator, air nozzle kit and machine interface.
