A new, free-standing robotic loading and unloading platform from Automation Within Reach (Dayton, OH) is designed to make automation affordable for any size CNC shop. Load & Go is simple to install and operate, using an intuitive, menu-driven HMI that eliminates the need for advanced programming skills. Other features include:
- Four parts drawers to accommodate a wide range of round, square or rectangular part IDs and ODs for low volume, high mix production runs to provide the versatility needed to meet changing customer demands. A rotary table version is also available.
- The ability to store part programs on board, the menu-driven HMI, and adjustable, universal part templates in the drawer version for quick part loading, enabling complete changeovers in less than 10 minutes.
- A compact and self-contained design, so installation consists of simply locating the unit opposite the door of the CNC machine it tends, bolting it to the floor and connecting electrical power, air supply and Ethernet.
Affordably priced and easy-to-use, Load & Go enables CNC shops to automate labor-intensive loading and unloading with a minimal investment that will reduce cost-per-part and deliver fast ROI.
