Having supplied Australian manufacturers with innovative advanced manufacturing technologies since 1946, John Hart’s depth of experience and technical knowledge has formed the foundation for the development of its Agile Robotic Systems range of robotic machine tending solutions.

Joining an elite group of Australian companies that build and export manufacturing technology, John Hart designs and manufactures the systems in its Melbourne facility for local and international markets. With a facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, Agile Robotic Systems offers on-site demonstrations, technical support and sales for the entire North American region.

Three levels of machine tending products provide the basis of this innovative success story. The Agile Flex range is an out-of-the-box machine tending solution that is solid in construction, rapid to deploy, easy to use and very affordable. The Agile Modular range offers a flexible machine tending solution created by bringing together pre-engineered modular system components to meet project requirements. Finally the Agile Engineered range offers a fully bespoke solution designed specifically to meet the unique requirements of each project.

Known for their advanced design, simplicity of use, build quality and reliability, Agile Robotic Systems come in a range of sizes and configurations to meet the individual needs of manufacturers. Unique to Agile Robotic Systems is the Agile Flex Cell Controller software. Developed in-house to offer unparalleled ease of use, this revolutionary control system allows users to efficiently change to new parts in a matter of minutes.

At the heart of this system is a revolutionary wizard-based process, which prompts users in a question and answer format to input simple process information for the next part. Ideally suited to small and large batch sizes alike, Agile Robotic Systems allow customers with no robotic knowledge to be fully self-sufficient in setting up any number of new parts over a normal week. System flexibility together with simple and fast part changeovers helps customers to remain flexible, productive, and profitable in a tough global market.

Having successfully installed many systems into a large variety of industries locally and in the USA , John Hart is a local success story highlighting what can be achieved through the hard work and ingenuity of the very capable people in Australia’s manufacturing industry. Agile Robotic Systems set a new benchmark in rapidly deployable, compact, and affordable machine tending systems.
