Robai Cuts Cost and Lead Time for Robotic End Effectors with 3D PrintingBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
End effectors, also known as end-of-arm tools, allow robotic machines to perform a variety of functions in the execution of manufacturing tasks. They’re typically made from metal using conventional machining methods and can take considerable time to manufacture, particularly if they have to be outsourced.
Robai found a better way to make end effectors with 3D printing instead of machining. This let Robai cut the time and cost to create end effectors by over 90% compared with machined tools.
