The introduction of the Tower will be a first in the Netherlands, although the demand from the market already seems to be very large. The first orders have already been placed, including by Lacom Machinefabriek. "The Netherlands is well ahead in terms of CNC automation, Smart Factories and Industry 4.0," says Area Sales Manager Bert den Ouden. "In comparison with other countries, we see a high concentration of CNC automation here, so it doesn’t surprise me that there’s so much interest in the Tower. But we also want to show our Dutch and Belgian visitors all other possibilities."
Which is why RoboJob is also presenting solutions from its other automation concepts on its exhibition stand. "As a customer, you can choose how you want to automate with RoboJob. As you know, we offer three standard concepts: a simple table concept, stackable racks or the Tower."
Using the table concept, the workpieces are stacked on a table. With the well-known Turn-Assist Series, RoboJob offers three such 'table' models for the automation of lathes. Within the Mill-Assist Series there is both a 'table' model and a Conveyor, which is placed alongside the milling machine.
Stackable racks or product carriers
The RoboJob Racks are stackable racks or carriers wherein large(r) series or difficult to stack workpieces may be positioned in stackable racks. When doing this, the robot not only takes care of the workpiece loading, but also for moving the racks themselves.
With this latest concept RoboJob builds vertically. This way the specialist succeeds in creating no less than 8.40m² of available loading space on a limited surface area of 1.40m². Using this, one or two robots may not only load one or more machines with workpieces or pallets but later also tools or clamping devices.
You’ll find RoboJob in Hall 10, on stand E 030. TechniShow is taking place in Utrecht’s Jaarbeurs from March 20th through to March 23rd.
