The flexible unmanned manufacturing of parts can also be implemented in workpiece handling. Thanks to a comprehensive plant concept, different machining processes are possible even in case of components with variable lengths and diameters.
The key elements are flexible gripper units, well-conceived component loading and perfectly coordinated interfaces. The intelligent plant software provides for smooth processes and seamless lot changes in manned or unmanned production.
To loading stations allow for decoupled component feeding. The loading of the shelf boards can be configured in different ways and can also be adapted to the production plan during ongoing operation. By means of the QR code, each nest is uniquely identified. Finished parts can also be removed by means of a level cycling device.
