What is a Robot Transfer Unit?

Robot positioning systems (7th axis or Robot Transfer Units) provide flexibility in manufacturing and industrial spaces. For example, they may allow one robot to reposition between work stations to do the work of several robots. They may also extend a robot’s working area without need for a larger arm. Sometimes, the transfer of units away from the operating zone permits safe movement of workers or large equipment.

These motion systems are common in aerospace, automotive, warehouse, and manufacturing applications. Both traditional and collaborative robots can benefit from Bishop-Wisecarver’s 7th axis motion solutions, regardless of their size.
