  • Reduces operating costs by Integrating automation
  • Eliminates changeover requirements for one part configuration to the next & automatic tool changeovers between operations
  • Overcomes angle variation with real time flexible part verification through vision system identification and feedback
  • Laser sensor finds final part location and positions robot to maintain consistent cut penetration & depth
  • Analog force feedback device provides monitoring to ensure consistency of the cut and predict excessive wear of the cutting tool
