Recently HAIMER introduced an automation concept for tool presetting: the Automation Cube One can “shrink out and in” a tool in 60 seconds, measure it, and transfer the data to a machine and to databases.
"We have learned from our 'Automation Cube' pilot project in recent years,” explained managing director Andreas Haimer. “In line with customer requirements, our new robotic cell is built as massively as a machine tool. For this purpose, we have brought various partners on board. Siemens supplies the latest Sinumerik One CNC control. Without the full, fast, and highly competent support from Siemens, we would not have been able to realize this new machine within a record time," he added.
The new robotic cell, which handles automatic shrinking in and out as well as measuring of tool assemblies, is significantly larger and more stable. With regard to the spindle interface, the new cell can manage up to three different interfaces simultaneously and up to eleven axis’ take over the part handling.
