Read the Case Study from Active8 Robots, specialists in the smarter application of robotics technologies, industrial automation and system integration solutions.
In automation, light-weight end effectors increase the productivity of the robot, which in turn increases efficiency, reduces costs and wear and tear. The challenge is how to achieve bespoke, light-weight, cost effective solutions, and quickly.
Active8 Robots have integrated Additive Manufacturing into all engineering processes. Active8 Robots has a dedicated innovation centre with an expansive range of Additive Manufacturing technologies for rapid prototyping capabilities. Furthermore, Active8’s portfolio of Markforged 3D printers enables manufacturing on demand, and avoids stockholding.
“The key benefit from integrating the Markforged 3D printers is the flexibility. We can begin solving any sort of problem immediately” highlights Silvia Sanchez, Marketing Manager.
