Robot integration for CNC applications

Over the past few years, Fastems reports that the number of CNC applications utilising automated guided vehicle (AGV) or autonomous mobile robot (AMR) technologies has multiplied – and demand is continuing to rise. “Today, the majority of our focus industries are using AGVs or AMRs in some way,” says Mika Laitinen, solution sales director at Fastems. “Whether in aerospace, defence, machine building, medical or subcontracting, there are automated vehicles in many production shops.”

He adds: “When it comes to CNC automation and AGVs or AMRs, they can be of great help in reducing manual transfers and forklift operations, reducing buffer sizes, increasing the automation level, and making production flows more predictable and reproducible.” In addition, Fastems’ Manufacturing Management Software brings higher intelligence for AGV use by overseeing all production orders and resources, and scheduling every piece of this complex puzzle for timely customer deliveries.
