Can robots be a help at the workbench?

Negative: The smoothness of the feed and the guidance of the milling cutter does not have the necessary precision. Pre-milling is possible, finish milling is currently only possible with limited quality.
If the number of units becomes larger, for example in subcontracting companies, both the programming and the operation of robots will come closer to economic use than is currently generally perceived.
It is therefore worth investigating possible applications here. These could be handling, palletizing or loading tasks, possibly combined with milling strategies for medium and low quality requirements.
