"For me, certainly the best loading system on the market!"
Featuring a double gripper, the SherpaLoader® completes each loading/unloading cycle within just 15 seconds. When CNC-machining is in progress, the SherpaLoader® places the unloaded part on the material car, picks up a new one, and waits in front of the CNC machine door for the next cycle to begin.
In just 5 minutes the SherpaLoader® is set up for a different workpiece type. This is made possible by digital recognition of workpieces, displacing mechanical positioning systems. When changing a workpiece, all you need to do is adjust the gripper fingers. Your SherpaLoader® is up and running again while traditional loading systems are still being adapted.
This is how short it takes for a productive SherpaLoader® to pay back its initial investment. With no costly mechanical structures or over-engineered components, each SherpaLoader® increases the spindle time of valuable CNC machines, while costing a fraction of them only.
Operated with two material cars, the SherpaLoader® offers a space of 0.9 square meters to supply workpieces. Randomly placed at a distance of 20 mm to neighboring parts, the capacity exceeds 240 cylinders 40 mm, or 64 cuboids 90x90 mm. With the SpaceBox, capacity even exceeds 1000 parts, allowing for autonomous running over an entire weekend.
0% Redundant Workload
Made possible by 3D vision, the SherpaLoader® dispenses with magazines and grid plates. Once loaded on material cars, euro-pallets, or in the SpaceBox, workpieces are not manually handled until the end of the production process. This reduces manual workload, and it increases the ergonomics for CNC operators.
100% Spare Parts Availability
All standard components of the SherpaLoader® are stocked and available for shipment within 48 hours. With the network of authorized service partners, competent assistance is available on-site within a few hours' drive, in the unlikely case that things go wrong.
