Abstract: Manual work on CNC is normally done. Manual loading & unloading is time consumable & require manpower. Normally workers pick the component than load into the chuck & after the completion of operation unloads the component & place at require place. So it will take time to complete the cycle. In order to reduce the cycle time automation comes into play. By using robotics we can load & unload the components, which in turn reduces the cycle time & also require less labor work. So, we compare the cycle time which takes place in manually & in automation & make the model on SOLIDWORKS. Hence we can achieve the goal to reduce the cycle time & increase the productivity.
