The word “automation“ is derived from the Greek autómatos which means “to act independently”.
Depending on the customer's requirements, different automation solutions are used for automatic loading and unloading of workpieces. The offer ranges from gantry loaders to articulated robots. Peripheral transport and storage systems for workpieces, tools and jaws can be combined as desired.
- 24/7 production with minimal operating effort
- Suitable for small batch sizes
- Ideal for repeat orders
- Customer-specific options such as outward transfer of samples, inscribing, cleaning, raw part measuring, etc.
- Additional machining using robots (e.g. deburring)
- Camera-based recognition system
- Data exchange via Profibus or OPC-UA
A SPACE-SAVING ACCESS GENIUS
Gantry robots are one of the most efficient automation solutions for production processes. Modular gantry loaders are loaded from the top and therefore grant free access to the machine without requiring much space. The modularity related to the loader’s design not only creates large travel distances and work spaces, but also masters huge loads.
The reduced space requirement is a major advantage in small production areas as well as regarding retrofit of automation solutions.
A FLEXIBLE MOVEMENT GENIUS
The three-dimensional kinematics of industry robots facilitate the use of end effectors (e.g. grippers).
No matter if limited access to the machine, complex movements, short cycle times or other additional tasks (deburring, cleaning, orientation, turning, etc.) – the articulated robot will find its way. Thanks to their mobility, articulated robots are versatile handling systems for assembly, handling and machining tasks.
