Automated loading and unloading of parts to a machining centre is the next step in automation. The challenge is that loading and unloading systems must be able to handle a wide variety of components without compromising the precision of the part. Manufacturers need a way to automate machine tending without dedicated tooling and programming for each unique part.
Join us as we demonstrate the FlexMT. Learn how this technology can work for you.
The FlexMT is a flexible, modular system that uses vision guided robotics to load and unload machine tools. Designed for both small batch and high volume production, the FlexMT increases spindle utilization by up to 60% over manual machine tending. The system can handle most any size and type of part, and is compatible with a wide variety of machine tools.
- The benefits of automated, flexible machine tending include:
- Increased productivity
- Improved part consistency
- Reduced operational costs
- Optimize labour costs
- Quick installation, pre‐built modular solution
- Improved working environment
If you are considering the implementation of automation or robotics in your company or if you want to learn more about this technology, then you need to attend this session.
Application specialists from ABB Robotics will be on hand to showcase this technology and answer any questions you may have.
