Automation starts

Get rid of the
work:

  1. With its 3D camera laser system, the SherpaLoader® captures raw parts on the material supply line
  2. It picks up the first part and places it in the clamping device of the processing machine
  3. While the machining process is running, he picks up the next raw part and stands ready in front of the machine safety door
  4. After processing, he removes the finished part from the processing machine and inserts the next raw part
  5. The process is repeated until the last part of the order has been processed

Material store

The SherpaLoader® offers maximum flexibility in the provision of raw parts
- for small quantities and large series, small or light workpieces as well as large and heavy workpieces

Small series: Table trolleys

Table trolleys are the ideal solution for small parts or small quantities, with a surface area of 1.2 square metres available.

image
Medium series: SpaceBox

SpaceBoxes increase the running time! A SpaceBox has up to 6 square metres of storage space. Two SpaceBoxes also fit into a robot cell, with space for over 3,000 small parts on 12 square metres.

Heavy workpieces: Pallets

The SherpaLoader® picks heavy blanks directly from pallets and unloads them there again after processing. Two Euro pallets with standard dimensions of 1,200 x 800 mm can be provided.

Stackable workpieces

The powerful 3D camera laser system also recognises stacked workpieces on pallets and table trolleys.

Structure of the robot cell

The SherpaLoader® robot cell is a modular system and is configured from 50 standardised hardware and software modules for your application - without expensive development work

Installation to suit your
individual room situation

Material feed from
each side possible

Jede CNC-Maschine ist anders. Manche haben zwei zentralschließende Türen, andere eine schmale Tür; mal ist das Bedienpult der Bearbeitungsmaschine links und anstellbar, mal an einem Schwenkarm auf der rechten Seite montiert; oft ist der Platz vor der Anlage begrenzt, aber nicht immer. Die meisten Roboterzellen sind für eine einzige Aufstellung konstruiert.

The SherpaLoader® is different: it is designed for six set-up variants as standard. This means it can be adapted to your processing machine and the work processes of your production: for an optimum material flow with ideal space utilisation. We work with you to plan your individual space situation and advise you based on our many years of experience.

Compatible with all standard
machine tools of all ages

Die Schnittstelle des SherpaLoader® ist universell anpassbar. Dadurch kann jede gängige Dreh- und
Fräsmaschine automatisiert werden - unabhägig von ihrem Alter. Es ist möglich, den SherpaLoader® an eine
gebrauchte Bestandsmaschine anzubinden, ebenso wie an eine neue Maschine eines anderen Herstellers.
