CNC Machine Tending Kit

The Machine Tending Copilot offers you all the software capabilities needed for your machine tending applications.

The CNC Machine Tending Kit is a Robotiq product that bundles two Hand-E grippers, two sets of Fingertips Extender, two sets of 2F- 85 Fingertips Conversion Kit and optionally, the Wrist Camera. On the software side, this kit includes the Machine Tending Copilot.

This kit aims to streamline machine tending applications by installing two grippers on a single robot, which reduces cycle time for pick and place operations. Moreover, the CNC Machine Tending Kit leverages Robotiq Copilot software to create robot programs that self- correct their waypoints based on physical feedback, or by using the Wrist Camera for visual feedback. This makes robot programs more robust, and should reduce production stops. It also means that robot programs require fewer adjustments when used for different machines or work environments.

Robotiq uses its best off-the-shelf components to bring you an optimized kit for CNC machine tending applications.
