A CNC Machine Tending Solution that Improves Productivity and Lowers Cost
The Toellner CNC pick & place machine is a standard machine tending piece of equipment. It is usually complemented by a front end accumulation table and part queuing system, a custom part handling device or gripper, a part catcher, and an unloading conveyor with an accumulation system to manage finished parts after the machining operation.
Designed with a compact footprint, the base unit is mounted to the floor, but is designed to swivel out of the way to facilitate tool changes or other machine set up and maintenance functions. The Allen Bradley PLC control unit is a standard product that has proven to be reliable and durable in many installations.
As compared to other types of pick & place machine tending automation, the Toellner CNC loader system is designed for simplicity of operation and maintenance. Once set up, it will operate continuously without any further attention. Operation is controlled by a single start / stop button. No special training is required, and the unit is easy to reconfigure for different parts. As a result of its simplicity, typical costs for a total system can be lower by 30 to 50% when compared to other machine loading and machine unloading robots.
