Expert automation advice on-hand from REM

Expert automation advice on-hand from REM

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 29 January 2013


With over 25 years’ involvement in the design and installation of machine tool automation systems through its partnership with Erowa, REM Systems has a wealth of experience in the fields of automation and workholding systems. In order to spread the message that automation can be advantageous to manufacturing companies, irrespective of their size or production needs, REM Systems is offering a free, no obligation, consultation service to potential users of robotic load/unload systems.
Taking the first steps into automating your machine tool systems can be daunting, with robots conjuring up images of high volume automotive applications with sparks flying from spot welders. The consultancy service provided by REM Systems aims to demystify automation and highlight the fact that it can be applied to a wide range of applications across many industry sectors.
“A typical customer for automation is one producing high value components on five-axis machine tools, where workloads tend to be high mix and relatively low volume, with 50-off being an average batch size,” says John Ryland, REM Systems Joint Managing Director “By making available our extensive application experience of robot load/unload systems and in-depth knowledge of palletisation, automation and zero-point tooling systems on a free of charge consultancy basis, we are confident that more UK manufacturing companies will recognise the productivity benefits of automation.”
Automation can be as simple or as complicated as a customer requires with Erowa robots covering all aspects of the machining process, from a single compact system measuring just 2m2, yet still able to support two machines with up to 160 magazine positions, through a heavier-duty stand-alone robot capable of handling up to 500kg, to a linear system with up to 1200 storage positions, capable of supporting up to eight different machine tools with a single robot at the centre of it.
