A press brake is a piece of manufacturing equipment that is used to bend sheet metal. In this video, the Franka Emika robot is moving blank sheet metal into the machine where it is pressed. The robot then removes the shaped metal and drops it into a collection box. Franka Emika robot can take over repetitive and dangerous tasks from human workers, freeing them up for creative and problem-solving tasks.
The robot can complete these tasks for longer shifts, often more accurately and without the risk of injury or fatigue. By optimizing machine loading processes, production facilities may be able to increase the scale of their operations.
