We at CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies are proud to announce our new lineup of AUTOLOAD Gantry Parts Loading Systems! These systems are designed to provide an automated parts loading solution for customers on new and existing CNC lathes.
About the AUTOLOAD Gantry Parts Loading Systems
The AUTOLOAD Gantry Loading Systems are available with both single and twin arm gantries, and come in various sizes. A light curtain or safety door guards the loading area to ensure protection for the operator. Stocker or pallet-style loading and unloading styles are available for the loaders as well as optional outbound/inbound conveyors and a flip over station.
Available accessories include:
- A servo-driven B-axis on the gripper able to rotate 0-360°. This is specifically designed for fast loading of twin spindle lathes.
- All models also come with a pneumatically-operated gripper, which is driven by a rotary cylinder.
- The rotating angle of the gripper is 180°, without a B-axis.
The Pros of Automation
“Everyone knows that automation is the key to profitability and being able to maintain a competitive edge,” said Steve Smith, president of CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies. “The new AUTOLOAD gantry loading systems were designed as an aftermarket solution to quickly automate throughput and designed to be compatible with any CNC lathe and controller on the market today.”
