Fabtech 2019: Self-learning Robots with a Human Touch
The fear for many when it comes to robots and automation is losing the human touch and expertise that comes with years of experience. One company has managed to take the expertise of human hands and seamlessly transfer that to robotics.
LestaUSA’s new Finishing Robots are programmed using the movements and actions of leading human painters and finishers. It then takes those programmed actions and perfectly repeats them time after time, allowing businesses to scale their operations without losing the effectiveness of an expert painter.
“This allows manufacturers to keep the talent they have,” said LestaUSA President Derek Degeest. He also explained that this helps extend the careers of many painters because it reduces the wear and tear that the job can have on the body.
