Function package for flexible machine tool tending
FlexLoader FP 600 is the solution for fragile workpieces or processes with a cycle time longer than 15 seconds
It replaces fixtures with traditional conveyors, is very flexible and has no limits for size or weight of workpieces. It can be adapted for different kinds of machine tending, but can also be equipped with add-on options for deburring, air cleaning station, workpiece marking, washing and quality control. New workpieces are programmed in just a few minutes.
Workpieces are placed manually on a conveyor belt that also functions as a buffer. FlexLoader FP 600 can be unmanned for long periods of time while the robot picks up workpieces from the belt and feeds them on to one or more processing machines.
The system can be integrated into existing production lines where workpieces come separated from each other. The robot can also place finished workpieces directly onto pallets, sometimes with dividers.
