First show at home since its launch
Since its launch this past summer, Coby CNC, RoboJob's latest system, had not yet been on show at a trade fair in its home country of Belgium, but that will change this spring. RoboJob is taking its latest, most accessible CNC automation to Machineering in Brussels. The Low Countries were already introduced to Coby last autumn during Metavak in Gorinchem (NL), but the Brussels Expo is really RoboJob's home turf. “It goes without saying that we enjoy going to trade fairs abroad," says Nick Raes, Sales Manager Benelux. "But a trade fair like Machineering on Belgian soil is definitely something to look forward to a little more."
Who is Coby?
Coby combines a stacker table like those of the Mill and Turn-Assist systems with a cobot, and of course with the brains of RoboJob. This latest development makes CNC automation more accessible than ever, thanks to Coby software. It guides the user step-by-step through setting up workpieces and jobs. In terms of hardware, the system is similarly designed to be placed, installed and started up quickly and easily. This way, even someone with limited technical knowledge can get started with automation all by him or herself, without having to call in technical experts to take care of the installation. This makes Coby CNC a true DIY robot.
Coby is not the only aspect RoboJob introduced in 2022. Last autumn, beneficial collaboration was established with clamping specialist HWR as well. It is now possible to fit a Mill-Assist Essential with additional hardware and software to load pieces into HWR clamps. The extension consists of specially developed laths for the stacker table and another gripper. There will also be additional functionalities in the software. It is therefore well worth a visit for anyone who works with such clamps and is looking for ways to automate.
