Machine-tending robot from CNC Robotics triples production for optics specialists
The addition of a machine-tending system from CNC Robotics has allowed a manufacturer of specialist optical equipment to triple production from its latest Mazak Integrex machine. The system, which is based around a KUKA robot, was expected to pay for itself in three months but has repaid the investment in half that time.
It has proved so successful that the company has ordered a second system for a new Okuma Multus machine that is soon due for delivery.
The customer is a leader in specialist optics equipment, producing its own range of devices from its site near Leeds, as well as supplying components to many of the world’s leading optics companies. In both areas, the company has established a reputation for high precision and quality. All the equipment made for its own brand comes with a lifetime warranty, a key part of maintaining the company’s reputation for premium products.
