Automation

Improved material flow through
automation-adapted workpiece carriers, containers and so on

 

Requirements in automation

Parts that run through automated production and storage processes demand individual transport and packaging solutions that have been adapted to the respective conveyor technology. For our customers, we thus develop special workpiece carrier and load carrier systems that have been perfectly adapted to the conditions arising during automated handling. Contour-precise nests that have been adjusted to the product provide the parts with a safe hold, while high form precision to a tenth of a millimeter guarantees the dimensional stability required for automatic equipping and removal. A clever arrangement of the parts also guarantees a high load density and the stackability of the load carriers for an optimum utilization of the transport and storage volume.

Advantages


 

Options

Optical protection against incorrect positioning

Labeling using color strips or arrows indicating the direction of running prevent incorrect insertion.

Mechanical protection against incorrect positioning

Special reference contours guarantee that the position of the workpiece carrier is mechanically recognized.

Centering dome (top/bottom)

The dome is used to check the position and fix the workpiece carrier into place during handling.

Perimeter groove

A perimeter groove is required to lift and lower the workpiece carrier.

Ergonomic, depressed grips or grip plates

Simplifies the handling of the workpiece carrier.

Placeholder for barcodes, etc.

Labels, document pouches and other code carriers for identification can be attached without a problem.
