Automation of repetitive applications
In so-called pick-and-place applications, parts are picked up and placed back in a specific position and orientation. For example, for the purpose of sorting products for a downstream process so that subsequent machines can handle the parts better.
Companies in the food, automotive or pharmaceutical industries and many other sectors very often use pick & place robots for the assembly or packaging of their products. This saves them production time and reduces the error rate to practically zero.
