2. Lock it into position.

The loading trolley is then securely attached to the robot trolley.  The robot identifies the trolley and its contents.  The guard locks and ROBO-TEND becomes live.

3. Tell it the billet size.

With a conversational interface the robot controller can be programmed to know the shape of billet, material size and number of parts in the drawers.

The ROBO-TENDs ‘Turnover Station’ allows component ‘flipping’ for second operation work, this gives ROBO-TEND even greater flexibility.

OptionsDescriptionNotes
Dual pneumatic gripperRemoves machined components and places new blanks in one process.Additional gripper weight will reduce the max weight of component by 1.5kg
Servo (Electric) GripperAllows a wide range of billet sizes to be handled without a manual gripper change.Required if machined component is considerably different to the blank size or if components vary in size in different drawers and you don’t want to change the gripper manually.
Dual Servo (Electric) GripperAllows a wide range of billet sizes to be handled without a manual gripper change. Removes machined components and places new blanks in one process.Required if machined component is considerably different to the blank size or if components vary in size in different drawers and you don’t want to change the gripper manually. Additional gripper weight will reduce the max weight of component by 2kg.
Increased depth of drawersAllows parts to stand taller while keeping within the component payload.Increases or decreases component size and quantities available in the drawers.
Vertical Conveyor Feed SystemAllows a vertical conveyor with minimum footprint to store a larger number of blanks.Option increases the buffer of blanks and reduces the frequency to replenish the machine. The machine can also run continously while being replenished.
