Producing the required unit volumes at a defined cost and to the highest quality standards while documenting every processing step along the way: The complexity of production lines has risen inexorably in recent years. That is unless you have an expert partner who has been planning such turnkey production lines, takes over the project management and hands over your new system to you ready for operation.
Custom solutions? Yes! Reinventing the wheel each time? No! SW has an extensive repertoire of hardware and software modules that fulfill a wide range of requirements in an extremely flexible manner with standardized elements. You won't need to fiddle around with interfaces or special constructions, because we deliver a complete solution that optimally incorporates all the process steps, both machining and non-machining.
As our machines are freely accessible from all sides. Operators have an unobstructed view of the working areas, and maintenance staff can access all the machine components directly. The 7-axis robots from SW Automation communicate directly with the machine control panel and higher-level systems. They are comprised of standard components that SW Automation produces in large numbers. As standard modules, they are reliable, functionally mature and available for delivery at short notice.
With the integrated loading module, SW machining centers achieve even higher productivity, even during unsupervised shifts. One example is the BA W02-22 machining center for impeller production: In the integrated loading module, a 6-axis robot carries out loading and unloading from a vertical pallet storage system for blanks and finished parts in parallel to the machining time.
The storage system can accommodate up to 1,152 components, which, with a cycle time of one minute, corresponds to 9.6 hours of unsupervised operation. The plug and play solution integrates seamlessly with SW machining centers, and also enables the connection of additional technologies, such as reclamping, labeling and scanning.
