Robots have been used for years in general automation of mass produced items such as cars etc, but more diverse applications are becoming the focus for robotic applications.
One such industry is in timber processing where manufacturers are employing robots for machining and general handling, rather than the more traditional timber CNC machines/routers to help with productivity and profitability.
Robots are ideal for timber processing and finishing, whether it be one-off bespoke pieces of furniture, or fully automated processing for balustrades, newels, windows, doors etc. Their robust design with flexible working envelope and fast moving arms, are ideal for getting to hard to reach areas of a part.
