Hainbuch simplifies switch to automation with auto clamping head

Added to MTDCNC by HAINBUCH UK Ltd on 30 September 2015

Manufacturers involved in automation are increasingly under the pressure of small batch sizes, increasing part variants and always less time to get parts out of the door. To resolve these issues, workholding specialist, Hainbuch has developed an automation solution that makes the end user more productive, more independent and more flexible. 

For manufacturers that are familiar with the Hainbuch brand, you will know that no production process problem is unsolvable. When investigating smart, minimalist automation solutions that would make work easier, Hainbuch created a stocking and changing station placed on the workpiece feeder belt of a vertical lathe. 

To setup the system, the spindle passes with the chuck over the combination of clamping head and end-stop to be changed and it is swapped completely and reliably within seconds by a pneumatic pulse. The workpiece to be clamped is then directly grabbed from the next changing station and clamped. The innovative design demands no additional automation.

The system makes the machine tool amazingly flexible. Using a clamp check with air sensing, the efficiency can be increased even further. This simple practical solution is suitable for a variety of machines. This is because the changing station can be installed directly beside an industrial robot or gantry. 

This impressive new automation solution is ideal for lower batch sizes or multiple part variants and it can enable operator free production over 3 shifts. With all the clamping heads and end-stops available from Hainbuch, the new development gives the customer optimal set-up and changing of the clamped parts. The system is available for a low upgrade cost that is remarkably low when compared to conventional automation systems. From an installation and set-up process, the system is easily integrated into your machine shop and once installed, no automation expert is required to operate the user friendly system.
