Automation and Robotics

Automation and Robotics - Traditional articulated-arm robots in plasma cutting, welding, and powder coating; pick-and-place robots in material handling; collaborative robots (cobots); automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR); automated storage and retrieval systems, offloading, and part stacking in blanking; automatic tool changing (ATC) in bending; advanced, even self-programming robotics in welding: The content in this area describes how automation and robotics are driving metal fabrication forward.
