Flexible Pallet Cell Makes Robotic Automation Affordable

July 31, 2015

Manually loading and unloading workpieces is not only tedious, repetitious work for machine tool operators, it also adds time and labor costs to every part you make. Automating the process using an industrial robot can reduce these costs while giving your shop’s productivity a significant boost. Now Gosiger Automation reduces the cost of robotic automation with its Flexible Pallet Cell (FPC).

Okuma Pallet Pool FMS Designed For Shops With Limited Floor Space

March 27, 2015

Okuma Pallet Pool FMS Designed For Shops With Limited Floor Space  If you’ve considered the advantages of a Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) for your CNC machining operation but don’t think you have the necessary floor space, Okuma has a solution for you. The company’s newest Pallet Pool System connects select Okuma machining centers, including 5-axis machines, to enable automatic part handling and pallet changes.

The system is extremely flexible:

  • Various pallet options can be arranged either in line with the Z axis or transversely in line with the X axis to accommodate your process flow
  • The systems can be retrofitted to select Okuma machines
  • Compact construction and single level storage system means the systems fit in even tight spaces
  • Standard load station can be manually rotated around its vertical axis and locked at 90º intervals
  • The Pallet Pool Control (PPC) fully integrates with the Okuma THINC®-OSP  control for error-free operation
  • All critical information is displayed at the operator load station to save worker time

AMPS Flexible Manufacturing Systems from Gosiger Boost Productivity

May 7, 2012

In today’s competitive manufacturing environment an idle CNC machine spindle is an ugly thing. Yet the typical stand-alone machining center runs only about 1/3 of the time, while patiently waiting for setup, programming or workpiece loading and unloading. All of which means less cutting time and lost productivity.

That’s why Gosiger recommends the Okuma Automated Modular Pallet System (AMPS). This unique, flexible manufacturing system (FMS) optimizes throughput by managing your production schedule and level loading your machining centers. In addition, AMPS enhanced production lines can often be managed by a single operator, thus reducing labor costs.
