What is CNC Machine Automation?
The method of using a robot system to autonomously load and unload a production machine is CNC Machine Automation. Ultimately, the layouts, workflows, workpieces, and needs vary so much from application to application, that at ASA, we offer a broad range of custom and standard robotic automation. Above all, lathe and milling machine load and unload, top loading of moulding machines, and press tending are key examples of common machine tool tending uses. Furthermore, maximizing the uptime of the main machine tool is the design goal in these applications.
Lights Out Production
CNC Machine automation allows machines to run continuously. Accordingly, this is without interruption for the length of a shift or overnight for “lights out” production. Additional advantages include an increase in machine utilisation. Ultimately, this frees up the worker to operate multiple machines, program, or carry out downstream processes, leading to higher and more consistent overall output rates. Additionally, robot rails can be added to allow robots to operate numerous machine tools when necessary, this increases their flexibility. Ultimately, the design of the robot’s changeover grippers also enables the robot to handle a variety of parts and/or a substantial switch between pre-machined and machined parts without the assistance of an operator.
Benefits of CNC Machine Automation:
- Greater flexibility as opposed to set automation
- Maximise productivity with faster and more efficient operations
- An increase in system uptime
- Being able to manage multiple machines
- Decreased running costs
- Increased calibre
- Capacity to perform additional procedures
