The Load Aassistant has been developed based on many years of experience in metal working and production automation. It is a smart and sophisticated system using a 6-axis Fanuc robot and it does exactly what it is designed to do: load your CNC machine with small and medium batch sizes. The system is very fast to set up and you don’t need any knowledge about robots to operate it.
Milling & Turning
LoadAssistant increases your production output, machine eﬃciency and profits The additional machining hours gained at a lower cost immediately result in higher production output and higher profitability. The LoadAssitant ensures maximum spindle hours, improving the utilization rate of your machine shop. Automation lowers labor costs, as the average labor costs are 5 to 8 times higher than the average depreciation cost per hour of the robot.
Your qualified operators are better utilized Operators are qualified to set up and program CNC machines. Most of the time, however, they are engaged in tedious and repetitive work. The LoadAssistant takes over this work, allowing your qualified operators to focus on work preparation, parts inspections, configuring other machines, and creating CNC programs. The content of their job therefore becomes more appealing and the operators become more productive and efficient with their time.
You do not need robot specialists The LoadAssistant can easily be set up and operated by any employee. No robotics training is required thanks to the SmartControl combined with the well-thought-out loading solution.
It increases flexibility as it can be used with several of your CNC machines The LoadAssistant can easily be moved with a pallet truck and connected to other CNC machine in your shop. By investing in one loading robot you can automate several machines, allowing you to respond to the demand of your customers in a more flexible way. You can use the Universal System with a lathe as well as with a milling machine.
