Precision grinding operations require outstanding repeatability – if every part goes in the machine the same way, it will emerge just as accurate as the part that just came out. But changeovers are subject to human error when carried out by human machine operators, even the best of whom make mistakes. And between setup operations, machinists have little to do, which makes tending the machine tedious work for skilled operators who could be put to better use elsewhere.
