Three CNC Robotic Tending Cell

Three CNC Robotic Tending Cell


Custom Machines was approached to assist an automotive manufacturer with the development of an automated loading solution.

Custom Machines Solution: 

This system has been designed to oversee the loading and unloading of three CNC machines used for machining wheel hubs. The hubs enter the cell from an in-feed conveyor, and a part orient machine positions the hubs in the part nest. Finally, the robot automatically loads and unloads the hubs from the in-feed conveyor to the CNC's to the out-feed.

Installation Benefits: 
  • 30 day ROI
  • 400% reduction is scrap rates
  • Increased production rates
  • Reduced packaging times
  • Faster product changeover times
  • Low training expenses because of the robot software's ease of use
Previous Robot Usage Experience: 

This was the first robot installation at this plant. Its success paved the way for more applications.
