Use the Same Robot for More Than One Job

Deploying a robot in the leanest possible manner sometimes means being able to move your robot to different robotic cells.

This past month, EmileDerache posted about the possibility of moving a robot from one setup station to another. Roehlkk suggested keeping the robot’s moves relative to a feature, or using fixtures to keep the robot in place, in order to have better repeatability.

Have you ever deployed your robot and then repurposed it at another station? Whether you’ve done so successfully, you’re thinking about it, or you need some help doing so, we invite you to share your thoughts and experiences!
