Body processing / lot size 1

Product advantages:

  • Highly flexible single quantity system for robot-based machining of furniture bases
  • Integration of drilling machining and metal fitting thanks to a project-specific multi-function head
  • Machining of coated chipboards and MDF boards with dimensions from 200 mm x 200 mm up to 1200 mm x 368 mm
  • Direct integration into the customer's machining control system for flexible processing of the production lot
  • Minimal space requirement of the system due to two-lane vertical workpiece transport as an extension of an existing production environment
