Sample Applications


When flexible devices such as adaptive grippers are paired together with a robot, a virtual infinity of assembly motions and operations can be combined to create the necessary assembly tasks and they can also be programmed using hand-guiding without the need for a programming specialist.

Pick & Place

Compact design, easy to use and no need for fencing are the key in most of these applications. In fact, not using fencing can make the design of a production line a lot easier. Even if the robot doesn’t work directly alongside humans if such a situation might occur, the robot can react properly.

Machine Tending

General applications include placing a raw part in a machine and removing the machined part after this stage of the process has been completed. Typically the robot has a pick and place layout and can determine the required position incrementally and literally execute a matrix of picking and placing options.

John Henry Foster’s goal of providing innovative and state-of-the-art products continues to expand and now includes a range of industrial robots currently available in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, North Dakota and northern Iowa.
