Because there's much to gain, even after you've fully optimized your process. We are/have been developing our own robot cells with a Universal Robotics UR10 and a 100-kilogram Kuka Robot-2 very different approaches to the same problem.
- Understand the advantages of automation
- Identify your specific needs
- Learn how to design a modular system
- Discover lessons learned by mistakes
Youngster amongst the Expert Elite members but have been called an old dog by some in the CAM business. Started at my brother’s shop a few years ago. As the “computer nerd” in the family I was the guy to help move from old hand wheels to CNC controls. Now we have a shop with 7 guys and some serious machines. I’m responsible for everything that happens on the shop floor, including all tools needed for the work at hand. Have been working with the CAM Development team before it was part of Autodesk. Together, Autodesk (CAM), the re-sellers and the users we are building a great product.
