Gripper for loading machines


This application example involves the internal loading and unloading of tooling machines (milling machine). The tight installation space and the fact that workpieces were to be provided outside of the machining space were special challenges.


The tasks was accomplished by a servo-electric loading Z-stroke and a pneumatically driven swivel unit with a center position. Furthermore, an integrated tubeless pneumatic feed-through ensured low interference contours.
