be progressive / Automation with loading module

SW independent manufacturing cells store the supply of workpieces for an entire shift

SW developed an integrated loading module for its machining centers that can be docked with the basic machine. This is a plug & play solution designed custo-mer-specifically for the machine, robot and workpiece storage as a crane hook solution.  Additional techno-logies such as reclamping, labeling and scanning, etc. can also be integrated.

High storage capacity with low space requirement:
The loading module is structured so that it can be inte-grated without problems, even with difficult site-spe-cific preconditions. The module is therefore available in a version that is especially suitable for cramped con-ditions, designed especially as a corner solution with transverse material flow. Since the robot is mounted on the ceiling and can also be flexibly configured for specific projects, there is more freedom of movement and space for other technologies.

Automate with the loading unit

Automation with flexibility - also for custom applications

The SW Storage Tower and TopRob are the central building blocks of the automation solution for SW machining centers . The SW Storage Tower and TopRob are linked to the machine via standardized interfaces that connect the controller installed in the workpiece storage system to the higher-level IT of the machining center.

The assignment of workpiece carrier and position of the individual workpieces on the carrier enables complete traceability of the production history. This provides the user with a system that is as powerful as it is flexible for automating his machining processes.
