be progressive / Automation with loading module

Lights out machining

SW has developed integrated loading modules, which can be docked to machines from certain series. It’s all about the plug-and-play solutions designed according to customer specifications for the machine, robot and workpiece storage. Moreover, each module is equipped with a crane hook solution for easy transportation.  Additional features such as reclamping, labeling and scanning can also be integrated.

High storage capacity with low space requirement:
The loading module is structured to be easily integrated even in the most difficult of site conditions. Therefore, several versions of the module exist. Including one that is a corner solution, designed for cramped conditions with transverse material flow. Since the robot is ceiling-mounted on and  has the flexibility for specific project configurations, there is freedom of movement and maximum space left over 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.
