Ease In Automation
Hugard Inc. uses a custom claw as a parts collector to catch precision turned parts as they’re parted off by a CNC lathe. Because the parts are both extremely complex and subject to a constant stream of corrosive cutting fluid, they’re unsuitable for CNC Milling and conventional ABS 3D printing. Markforged’s ability to create uniquely robust, geometrically complex parts allowed Hugard to achieve massive savings.
Each part of the gripping system catches 3,000 parts per day and operates 24/7.
