Machine Tending

Large Robodrill

Our machine tending robots can be built to hang overhead, hang in the machine, mount to a rail system, or stand in front of the machine as an operator. We can integrate with your CNC or PLC controls for clean and worry-free integration.

Our Standard Machine Tenders feature: 

  • The tri-fold guarding can be attached to either side. Available area scanner option which does not require guarding.
  • Front or side loading for Mills or Lathes.
  • Robot mounted for human interaction
  • Preloaded with load and unload program templates for simple build with no complex programming.
  • Drawer load for blank parts is safe and can be configured for other parts in the future.
  • Utilize the on board I/O built into the Fanuc LR Mate for integration to the CNC machine.
  • 120 VAC power connection with optional air compressor.
  • Built-in Kennedy toolbox for additional machine tool storage.

We can also customize our machine tenders to fit your needs!


“We continue to gain efficiencies with APT machine tenders. One operator can keep several machines loaded and running.”
