I am plc systems integrator and we have integrated robots into cells to work with other hardware. A customer of ours is a machine builder has asked us to copy a simple glueing application currently using a cartesian 3 servo axis. If we price this then we know if we went servos it would be more expensive than a robot, due to the number of different variants and our engineering time.
So my question is if you had a free choice which robot manufacturer would you suggest to use and why?
I have worked with Staubli using their robot programmer and latest project was Fanuc using the customers engineer using the pendant. The programming was done by others and I would do touch-ups and set up the IO.
This would be a step for their customer as they wish to head down this route.
