Loading and Unloading of a CNC Lathe with Denz

Präzisions-Entwicklung DENZ Fertigungs-GmbH from Ottobrunn uses Robco’s automation solution to tend an OKUMA SIMULTURN LU300-M with parts in small series. The starting point for the automation solution was a multistage manual process for loading and unloading a CNC lathe. Robco managed to solve the requirements as follows:

  • Defined supply of the parts through an additional clipboard
  • Machine communication through an additional button pushers and via relays.
  • No need for an automatic door due to the possibility of opening doors with the robot.

Robco’s automation solution enabled Denz to increase the manufacturing capacities and to implement an additional robot shift overnight. The robot took over exhausting manual tasks from employees, so they could focus on the other tasks like quality control. A 5 degree-of-freedom robot was sufficient to do work and therefore more cost-efficient.

Fast and flexible deployment:
