Modular Machining Automation

GF Machining Solutions offers the System 3R WorkPartner 1+ (WPT 1+) modular automation system. "This solution can more than double annual production capacity while conserving valuable shop floor space and maximizing magazine capacity to load and unload parts and electrodes," said a company spokesperson.

In EDM applications, WPT 1+ puts a load station and a drain station in less than 43 sq. ft. of floor space. With the WPT 1+, shops can start with a single magazine unit and add more as production needs change. The various system models easily serve one or two machines within in a production cell, with flexible magazine capacities and variants (light, heavy or rotary magazines), along with fully integrated pneumatic control for gripping devices and table chucks. Large doors allow for fast and easy loading and unloading to shorten changeover cycle times for low and high-volume applications.

For user-friendly WPT 1+ cell management, GF Machining Solutions offers its WorkShopManager (WSM) software. Operators can enter cell data quickly in a structured manner and gain a quick, precise overview of their entire process chain with WPT 1+. Shops also can change job priority orders at any time for increased workflow flexibility. WSM reduces the risk of human error and increases the stability of production processes.
