Load shafts in a lathe
This video shows you how easy it is to also load shafts in a lathe using your RoboJob automation. The shaft rack is one of our modular extensions that you can also add afterwards to your automation. This way you increase your flexibility and spread the investments over time.
This simple, but extremely useful extension further completes your RoboJob product.
The Shaft Extension consists of a configurable shaft rack, an shaft-edge detection laser, adjustable and reversible 2-point grippers for shafts and an extremely user-friendly software extension. This is a smart extension which allows you to not only load and unload round elements, but also shafts.
The Shaft rack can be placed easily and consists of 3 extremely light and triangular supports to which two configurable baseplates can be attached. RoboJob provides 4 different sets of dividers: lasered plates which contain openings for a specific diameter range. The complete hardware is installed in less than 2 minutes, allowing you to get started straight away. Removing the hardware is also a piece of cake!
Depending on the diameter of the products, you can place more or fewer axes onto the system. Depending on the shaft length it is possible to place multiple shafts beside each other. Dividers are defined easily in the software by RoboJob and are stored in a database. Consequently, if necessary, the operator can define caliber plates for a specific diameter.
