We created a new robotic machine tending process complete with post process part washing, drying, gaging, automatic tool offset, and racking of the parts. The robot is able to run unattended throughout the weekend at a stable rate with 100% inspection of over 15 critical dimensions. The lathe is fed tool offset data to keep the parts within specification (+/- .0002”).
