Great writeup in Plastics Technology on a California based thermoformer that is using a six-axis robot to make their precision cuts.  By implementing the robots they have seen a noticeable increase in cost savings and speed improvement during the trimming process.  The thermoformer is quoted in the article, “Robots get it right every time. They don’t drink too much coffee and get shaky hands. They don’t sneeze mid-cut. They don’t get full and tired after a big lunch.”  Check out the entire article on the six axis robot at Plastics Technology.
