A little over a year ago we purchased a second robot to automate one of our Hurco 5-axis mills. After the pain and difficulty of trying to piece together and program our original robot cell we decided to look at what was available for an out-of-the-box solution. We needed something that would be quick to setup, fit in the space we had, and reliable enough to be left unattended over the weekend.
After considering our options, the one that best fit our needs was the Acieta Lean Machine robotic cell. A few of the factors that pushed use toward Acieta were their use of a Fanuc robot, which we knew from experience and reputation were dead reliable; their small footprint, which fit in the tight space we needed it to; and the multiple parts trays, which let us run hundreds of parts without having to reset anything.
Below you’ll find a testimonial that we did for Acieta when they visited our shop earlier this year.
