GROB automation systems – highly flexible, customized solutions
GROB automation systems are used to transport medium and large quantities of vehicle assemblies (engines and transmission cases) and components such as cylinder heads, pump housings and crankshafts.
Due to its simplicity, the new GROB loading concept enables the loading of single- and two-spindle machines. This GROB development gives the expression "highest flexibility“ a new meaning. Complicated systems with their high requirements on operator and maintenance now belong to the past thanks to the new GROB loading concept.
Automatic workpiece slide
Loading procedures have been separated from the part transportation through the use of automatic workpiece slides. Loading of the machine takes place in two steps: the finished workpieces are taken out of the machine using the empty loading fork, followed by the loading of the unfinished parts into the machine. Loading of both single-spindle and two-spindle machines is possible with this system.
Agile loading unit
The newly developed loading gantry is characterized by high acceleration values and speeds as well as by very high positioning accuracy and is suitable for loading medium-sized workpieces. A further advantage of the system is the easy adaptability of new types of workpieces. The minimal number of components ensures highest availability.
