Modular Pallet Handling System

Liebherr Automation Systems will demonstrate its new PHS Allround pallet handling system, designed to enable a broad range of shops to engage in flexible production in combination with 4- and 5-axis machining centers. The new modular concept, available in three capacities, can handle loads up to three tons, is flexible and can be individually configured and expanded. This corresponds to pallet sizes of 500 x 500 mm to 1000 x 1000 mm. Users can introduce flexible production systems with manageable investment and expand them when necessary.

The customer is able to combine preconfigured modules as needed to match production handling needs: the storage locations can be arranged in a circular pattern, with one or more machines, or in a line.

According to Liebherr, this space-efficient system fits in almost every production floor. The user can easily expand a production system with the Allround, spreading investment over different expansion stages. It is no problem to start with one or two machines and increase this number to five, for example, as production changes.

For all Liebherr pallet handling systems (RLS, PHS Pro and PHS Allround), Liebherr offers a new cell control with simple operation as its priority. The new graphically-guided interface concentrates functions on the main computer in a user-friendly manner, and if required also allows full production control. This includes resource planning, cutting tools and NC data management plus also interfaces to the ERP systems.

Liebherr Gear Technology will also demonstrate its gear skiving process on its LK series machines based on the tried-and-tested components of the corresponding large hobbing machines but equipped with greater rigidity and more powerful spindles. A gear skiving machine requires a table with a direct drive owing to the high workpiece speeds required. This drive works with an automatic control that constantly has the optimal parameters. The complex clamping fixture, which links the workpiece and the machine, is designed by Liebherr.
