Hermle Automated Pallet Pools

Everybody talks about automation, but it’s much more than just a trendy word. Hermle themselves have changed from being a machine manufacturer to a process provider because they believe that the decisive criterion for automated efficiency is integration of the entire environment and periphery. In keeping with this philosophy, Hermle is continuing what began with economical pallet changing and intelligent handling systems with highly advanced robot solutions. They have been capable of converting machines into flexible manufacturing cells for over 15 years now.


Double or triple productivity. The RS 2 and RS 3 robot systems can naturally be adapted to encompass multiple machining center’s with a wide variety of machining tasks. The storage systems are also completely and flexibly adjustable.

 

The Quaser MF400/MF500 Compact Cell

The Quaser MF400U / C & Quaser MF500 U/C Cell was designed for mixed production and flexibility. It’s equipped with a dual tool magazine which gives the operator a maximum of 120 Tool positions. The Pallet storage tower which is capable of 40 Pallets (MF400) and 28 Pallets (MF500) in a small footprint. One or two Storage towers are available! With two towers, you can run 80 pallets on the MF400 and 56 Pallets on the MF500! Perfect for lights out operations. This cell applies to Heidenhain TNC640, Fanuc 31iB5, and Siemens 840D NC systems for 5 Axes simultaneously. If you are running 4+1 (multi face) operations, this cell applies to the Fanuc 0iMF and the Siemens 828D NC controls.

The MAM Rotary Loading System 

The MAM Rotary Loading System is the step into flexible production with 5- or 4-axis machines. Standard functions such as automated upload and download of CNC programs, simple processing of jobs in color and real time and the powerful high-speed robot for transfer loads of up to 500 kg makes this system a technological pioneer. The Rotary Loading System uses an efficient, more reliable, almost maintenance-free linear robot system. The swivel axis moves parts up to 1500 kg. The solid steel frame and servomotors with well-known components from the machine tool industry enable maximum accelerations and precise positioning over the entire service life among low operating costs.
