CMM & Machine Tending

tendapod machineThe latest innovation for machine tending, Tendapod® removes the reliance on
manual tending enabling manufacturing and metrology machines to be fully optimised.

Optimising a machine’s capability can greatly increase its speed and productivity resulting in an enhanced return on investment and providing a step closer to achieving lights out manufacturing.

Specifically designed to be as compact as possible (less than 1m2 footprint) tendapod can easily fit onto any shop floor and within an hour be fully operational.

Tendapod’s unique modular draw system is ‘AIV compatible’ and allows pallets or trays of components to be loaded even during operation, ready for the 6-axis robot to load and unload from your machine or CMM. It effortlessly adapts to different tasks and can be integrated to carry out secondary tasks.

Tendapod® follows the same reconfigurable philosophy as all of the Robopod range.

Protecting your investment time and time again.
