What is a deburring machine?
The ISLAND (WORKSTATION)
We find often in the sector the word ISLAND to identify a robotic machine.

So, the robot was in the spotlight of the manufacturer and the user.
The robot was the highest palm tree of the ISLAND (workstation) at the centre of ISOLA. The robotic machine was stationary (not connected to anything else in the factory) and the robot was the focal point of the machine.
All equipment were under of the robots and their safety study had still to follow.
Nowadays everything has changed.
Let’s go step by step.
