OB7 operating cost is less than $5/hour (40 hours/week) or $2.50/hour (80 hours/week). OB7 productivity goes straight to your cash flow with payback in as little as one week.

Keeping CNC machines running is the key to maximizing productivity for job shops and large machine shops. OB7 collaborative robots from Productive Robotics bring home the competitive edge with their American-Made, all-inclusive CNC robot packages for automating mills, lathes, EDMs and other CNC machines. OB7 robots provide consistent and accurate 24/7 operation, increasing throughput, improving quality, and maximizing efficiency.


Productive Robotics' OB7 CNC packages come all-in-one for immediate automation. Just roll it up to your machine and press go. OB7 collaborative robots work just like a human operator to load parts for manufacturing and unload finished parts. 


Key benefits of OB7 Collaborative Robot CNC Packages:

  • Fast and simple installation - as little as a few hours

  • No programming: Physically "show" OB7 and it learns

  • No cage required: Works safely alongside operators
  • Consistent 24/7 output: optimize part quality and reduce scrap

Productive Robotics’ OB7 machine tending robots provide a complete package to automate the entire machine loading process including:


  • Open and close the machine door

  • Pick up blank parts and insert them into the machine

  • Press the cycle start button 

  • Remove the finished parts


Automating your CNC machines has never been easier. With all-inclusive packages for mills and lathes, the setup process for OB7 is fast and easy. OB7 comes with all the accessories needed to connect to your CNC and begin automating on day one. With OB7, you can discover an immediate cash flow in under a week.

  • Operates any and all brands of CNC machines (mills, lathes, EDMs)

  • Operates any run sizes - from 10 parts to millions of parts

  • Cost-effective and all-inclusive packages for mills and lathes 

  • Designed and manufactured in the United States

OB7 next generation cobots offer a vast range of benefits for machine tending:

  • 24/7 ‘Lights Out’ operation: With machine tending cobots in place, equipment can run around the clock, with “lights-out” operation to maximize uptime and equipment ROI. Employees need not check on the cobot until the start of the next shift or operation.

  • Optimized Efficiency and Quality: OB7 cobots will complete the required actions with high repeatability and efficiency, eliminating scraps caused by human error. OB7 does not have to be programmed, but can simply be physically moved into position by the operator.

  • Enhanced Productivity: Your workers remain your most valuable and impactful assets. With cobots completing dirty, dull, dangerous tasks, those employees have more time to spend on higher-value, more impactful and innovative tasks — the ones that cannot be completed by robots.

  • Ultimate Flexibility: OB7 can be easily moved, set up and integrated with nearly any machine in the facility. This flexibility and versatility yield a much higher ROI than stationary robots that must be extensively programmed for use with one piece of equipment.

  • Designed and Manufactured in the USA: OB7 robots are fully designed and manufactured in America with the latest technology. With Productive Robotics, you receive direct factory support and a partner along your automation journey. 

  • Increased worker safety: Some machine tending cobots are used for other processes such as holding tools and parts for a consistent, high-quality — and safer — weld operation. By completing these tasks with cobots, your personnel are further removed from some of the most dangerous processes in the facility.



Machine tending cobots from Productive Robotics come included with all the necessary equipment required to begin automating in one easy to set up package. Setting up OB7 is simple and fast — no programming knowledge or previous automation experience needed.
