A kitchen door manufacturer had a problem that occasionally an object remained on the machining bed because the clearing action sometimes failed. When the next board was placed on to the bed and the robotic tools lowered, this resulted in damage to expensive components as the board was higher than the robot expected.The image to the above shows the bed with a large object remaining. The image is distorted because a wide-angle lens was required as the camera had to be mounted under the movement of the robot.
