TR6 – Turned parts with robot loading

TR6 – Turned parts with robot loading

TURN 60 is an industry-compatible inclined-bed lathe that facilitates all machining possibilities of a modern CNC turning machine: turning, plunge cutting, cropping and drilling.







Robot cell


The automatic control and loading/unloading of the CNC machine is undertaken by the 6-axis RV-2FB industrial robot used in the MPS®. In the Parts buffer station cylindrical unmachined parts are buffered and separately fed to a robot for removal. After CNC machining, the robot removes the finished part and places it on the station's other conveyor belt, where it is either buffered or separated for further transport.
