Robot-guided palletising systems from Schunk

Robot-guided palletising systems from Schunk

Robot-guided palletising systems are an efficient way to increase the flexibility of machine tools. They help minimise machine downtime in production of individual pieces or small series runs and enable reduced-manning production in 3-shift operations.  Precise alignment between individual gripping systems and clamping technology components is crucial. And until now the methods and mechanics of robotic loading has been the domain of large-scale production.

For small and medium-sized lots, the SCHUNK VERO-S NSA plus palletizing system ensures high process reliability, flexibility and efficiency.

Smart automated option for small lot production

Schunk has revolutionised this with an automated clamping solution. For small or medium production runs, clamping devices can be automatically changed.  The entire clamping device, including the workpieces that have been clamped manually, are handled on workpiece pallets.

For this process, workpieces and clamping devices are installed on the pallets, arranged in storage racks and successively transferred to the machining center by each robot from the pallet storage rack. The central element in the machine is a quick-change pallet system. In a matter of seconds, this element helps to fix, position and clamp the workpiece carrier pallets on the machine table automatically and precisely according to a reference value. The actual set-up operation takes place outside of the machine during the processing time, making it especially economical.

Highlights of the versatile robot-guided production method

  • Based on quick-change pallet system
  • Automated interface cleaning
  • Lifting pins facilitate automated removal
  • Special handling systems can be integrated
  • Modular clamping technology system adds efficiency
