First of all, Thanks to Chris for single-handedly putting together this gem of a robot. It truly democratizes robotics for the general public!
I've been wondering if any member has used this robot successfully in a factory. I want to put this robot for tending to a CNC Lathe in the factory but alot of experienced people in robotics are telling me that it would'nt work over multiple cycles. The job is just to pick up the part (200gms around) and place it in the collet of the cnc lathe.
I'm confident that AR4 would be able to do this job once programmed (as I saw in one of the videos about AR4 tending to cnc machines) but not sure if it would hold up after multiple repeated cycles. Would really love to hear the experiences of people that have used AR4 or tried to use AR4 (or AR3) for any such process before. Please also mention any other disadvantages of the robot that you have noticedThanks in advance!
