A Cobot Story by Robotiq

Problem

Since our last case study with WALT Machine Inc., they have seen a huge increase in demand, but hiring new employees hasn’t gotten any easier. Tommy Caughey, president of WALT Machine Inc. has already succeeded with automating a first CNC machine. He is now looking to scale its production and automation capabilities to meet growing customer needs.

Solution

Caughey already had part of the answer with his first application. He started small instead of trying to automate everything at once. It worked: his Robotiq 2F-140 Gripper, installed on a ceiling-mounted Universal Robot UR10, is tending three different machines. He’s now installing a Robotiq CNC Machine Tending Kit on a new UR and automating a second application.
