A new generation of the co.'s DS1100 flagship parts-feeding machine eliminates semi-autiomatic loading machines, which reduces the health problems associated with repetitive motion. A seven-axis, articulating robotic arm is said to provide greater dexterity for unloading parts from trays to conveyors and reloading them. The system can accommodate virtually any tray for any application, feeds parts to assembly operations and can also be specified as a compact machine-tool loader.
