Motoman Robots Loading/Unloading

Motoman SV3 robot loads/unloads CNC machine from two manually operated 180┬░indexing positioners.Machined Parts

Overall cycle time: 18 seconds for two parts, with CNC load/unloads in 6 seconds or less. Improved speed and throughput capacity. Improved safety over manual loading. Flexibility to add automatic unloading for CNC machining center. Automatic robot and CNC program changes for part changeover through PLC and touchscreen interface.

Project Challenges

Motoman Robotics Solution

Motoman Robotics provided two mirror-image SV3 material handling systems, allowing for dual production lines with a common aisle configuration. One unloads/loads parts from the right side of the CNC machine and the other unloads/loads parts from the left side of the CNC machine. Each flexible system includes:
