Punch Press Loading

Abstract

Industrial robots were used for press loading as early as the mid 1960’s. The advantages are evident: safety and health problems are eliminated, and productivity can be increased. Large and unwieldy parts can be handled at piece rates as high as 400 per hour with no change in cycle time due to fatigue. Robots are adaptable for long or short run operations. Programming for new part sizes can be accomplished in minutes.
