Automated Cells & Equipment
The ACE Model MT series Robotic Machine Tending system provides an automated method for loading into and out of virtually any machine tool. A unique drawer system is utilized for parts storage whereby customer supplied fixtures are placed in the drawers, providing consent part locations for robotic unload. More information about the MT Series Drawer Cabinet.
An operator simply opens each of the drawers from outside the robot cell, places raw parts into each drawer fixture and then closes each drawer. Next, the operator cycle starts both the machine tool and the robot. The robot moves to the top drawer, lifts the drawer handle, pulls the drawer into the robot cell and locks it into position for part unloading. The robot now unhooks from the drawer handle, picks the first part from the drawer and then loads the machine tool. On the next cycle, a finished part is unloaded from the machine tool and a new raw part is loaded. The robot moves back to the drawer to place the finished part back into the drawer. As drawers are completed, the robot moves down to the next available drawer.
Automated Cells can provide a fully integrated system with the MT Series Robotic Drawer including robot, end of arm tooling, safety fence and any other required peripheral equipment as well as training and startup assistance.
