Automating the loading and unloading of parts to a machining centre is becoming a very attractive capability. The challenge is that any automated process must be able to handle a wide variety of components without compromising the precision of the part. Manufactures need a way to automate machine tending without dedicated tooling and programming for each unique part.

The benefits of automated, flexible machine tending include:

  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced operational costs
  • Labour costs optimized
  • Quick installation, pre‐built modular solution
  • Improved working environment

Join us as we host an information session on the FlexMT. Learn how this technology can fit into your work environment.

The FlexMT is a flexible, modular system that uses vision guided robotics to load and unload machine tools. Capable of handling both small batch and volume production, the FlexMT can be equipped with a variety of grippers, tools, and fixtures. The system is compatible with a wide variety of machine tools and is able to recognize variations in part size and geometry.

Application specialists from ABB Robotics will be on hand to discuss this technology and answer any questions you may have.

If you are interested in automation and/or robotics and looking at ways to increase your operational productivity, then you need to attend this session.

Presented by ABB Robotics.
