Thame Towers Above the Competition with New Automation Solution

Added to MTDCNC by Thame Workholding on 26 June 2015

The ultimate goal of automated production and the implementation of unmanned machining to manufacture components at higher production rates, with lower associated costs, is now a step closer for users of machining centres.  The arrival of the new Lang Eco-Tower range of automation packages from Thame Workholding can now be installed and adapted to suit many machining centres.

The innovative new Eco-Tower line makes automation an affordable and flexible solution for subcontract manufacturers. Based upon a simple and user-friendly, functional principle, the Automation Unit only requires a small floor area next to the Machine tool, as it utilises the height of the factory, rather than taking up valuable floor space. This is credit to its spiral design that offers a large storage capacity within a confined space. With a small, compact and user friendly design, the Eco-Tower can be integrated into any machine shop, with installation and full training taking less than a week. Added to this, the Eco-Tower can be installed to feed the relevant machine tool from either the front or side access area.

The ability of Thame Workholding to project manage the automation solution allows the end user to develop the exact package they need, to meet the needs of the machine tool. With front or side loading, the machining centre can still be manually loaded and unloaded, whilst also being supported by a highly productive automation system.

A key benefit to this solution, is the low pneumatic forces it uses, this enables the handling system to eliminate the need for obstructive guarding structures. This makes the Eco-Tower a user friendly and ergonomic package, that allows the operator to easily and efficiently place raw material into the tower and rapidly remove finished products. This is a complete automation solution, as it provides work piece storage as well as the handling and feeding of components to the machine tool.
