Machine Tending Solution

Today’s manufacturers want to automate manual tasks with robots, but getting robots up and running is complex, expensive, and can leave you feeling overwhelmed. At Robotiq, we believe robots should simplify your life, not make it more complicated. Working with manufacturers globally (and being one ourselves!), we understand the challenges of maintaining quality, delivering on time, and keeping costs down amidst the labor shortage. Since 2008, Robotiq has pursued its mission of freeing human hands from repetitive tasks by enabling more than 13,000 collaborative robots, or “cobots,” worldwide. From SMEs to multinational companies, we’re helping manufacturers simplify their processes with easy-to-use automation solutions.

Manufacturers want their operations to run smoothly with as little downtime as possible. Automation is often considered, but quickly dropped because of the perception that it is complex and expensive. At Robotiq, we tackle this challenge by making solutions that are actually easy to use. The Machine Tending Solution is the only solution you need to automate your CNC machines. Combined with our worldwide distribution network, you can automate a CNC machine in hours instead of weeks.

Manufacturers want to automate manual tasks with robots, but getting robots up and running can be overwhelming. Robots should simplify your life, not make it more complicated.

With the Machine Tending Solution, we deliver peace of mind that your machines will always be running through accessible automation. Increase your machine’s capacity and reduce downtime with a Copilot that does the hard work for you. Machine Tending Copilot is powerful software used directly on the UR teach pendant. It guides the user through programming from start to finish with its points of interest and its action menus. During production, Copilot monitors the machine status with non-invasive components, just as an operator would.

Get a quick ROI—even in high-mix low-volume automation—with accelerated program creation. Elevate your workforce with easy-to-use robot solutions that do the work for you.
