With summer approaching, there’s no time for a rest at RoboJob.  The Benelux market leader in CNC automation already participated at several tradeshows and open houses this year, where it has revealed numerous innovations. But in addition, the Belgian company continues to work on further innovations and enhancements that will further increase the profitability, effectiveness and ease of use of its solutions.  The latest innovation is an airblow which can be integrated into all Turn- and Mill-Assist products.

The Belgian specialist in automatic loading and unloading of CNC machines prides itself to reveal new innovations and new products at every single event, both at tradeshows and open houses. But now it also announces new innovations outside the exhibition season. Co-founder and -CEO Helmut De Roovere explains this new trend: "It's obviously nice to unveil novelties at a fair or event. Not only does this attract curious visitors, it also shows over and over again that we are constantly innovating and optimizing our products. With our young and dynamic R & D department, we work hard on these innovations to have them ready by the next event. But now that both MTMS and Indumation are behind us, this doesn’t mean that we can sit back and relax. Our customers continue to ask for further improvements, and that is why we are working with them to further increase their profitability, effectiveness and ease of use."

"The latest innovation came to life at their request," says De Roovere. "Our customers obviously know our products like no other, so therefore we listen very carefully to them when they come to us with new questions or ideas."

The last innovation of RoboJob represents an improvement in the functioning of all the Turn- and Mill-Assist products. With the so-called 'integrated airblow’, a workpiece and the chuck or fixture can be blown clean before or after an operation. This doesn’t only ensure that each new workpiece can be positioned accurately: "If a few chips remain on the chuck or fixture, this can already create a few tenths of a millimeter difference when positioning a new workpiece. Chips can also cause a damage to the workpiece, both before the clamping of a new or semi-finished product, or when it is not removed from a finished piece," De Roovere explains. He has been in the business for over 25 years. "So also a finished piece can be blown clean, which facilitates further processing. This new option ensures that the complete reliability of the automation process is also increased further," De Roovere concludes.

"In addition, you can specify in the software when and where the airblow should occur," explains co-founder, -CEO and software specialist Luc De Ceuster. "That can be different for each piece, and with our user-friendly software you do this – as indeed for all tasks – with just a few clicks." RoboJob ensures that all programming can be done in a matter of minutes. The software was developed so that everything can be set up quickly and intuitively, because in the competitive machining industry, every second counts.

The first orders for the integrated airblow have already come in and the RoboJob customers are enthusiastic: "This reaffirms that with RoboJob, we do our utmost to meet the needs of our customers. So also in the coming months, we will continue to launch new innovations and improvements," De Roovere promises.
