The 5-day Integration Project
There is so much to do in a manufacturing startup. If a task can be automated in a cost-effective way, it will save valuable time and ensure product quality. But for most robotic solutions, integration costs alone are prohibitive.
Integration costs for a Robotiq Gripper on a Universal Robot represent only a fraction of the products price because Robotiq’s Plug + Play Components are easy to install, configure and use. Automating the CNC machine makes financial sense to continuously delive high quality eyewear. The team at Lowercase NYC can now focus on tasks where human skills are required.
Products they use
“The repeatability and the consistency of what’s going on in the machine is a huge plus for us. We make high-end quality products, it is very important to deliver the same standard in every production.”
“Having a product that operates the CNC machine, allowing myself to sit at the computer to work on design or go work on the more labor intensive stuff that can’t be done by machines, is a big plus for us.”
“The main problem was that the integration cost of most robotic solutions was 3-4 times the cost of the solution itself. But with the UR5 and Robotiq gripper solution, the integration cost was a fraction of the actual purchase price.”
