Robots Polish Glass, Enhancing Safety, Productivity’s case study shows how the robot was taught to perform polishing motions by having it record the movements of a skilled human technician. Recording the procedures took less time and cost far less than if this were done using programming. Automating glass polishing at the factory has enabled production of the same amount of completed glass panes in two 8-hours shifts that would have required human workers three 8-hour shifts.
