Two Okuma CNC machines used to make pipe couplings are tended by a FANUC R2000 iB robot in this 2-minute video. The robot uses two sets of grippers to load and unload the parts from each machine tool which greatly reduces mind-numbing, repetitive labor to free the machine operator for other tasks, reduce cost-per-part and keep the process running smoothly.
