Linear pallet storage system PSS-L – The new automation solution in the GROB product range : GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co. KG
Thanks to intensive development work, GROB is now able to offer all its automation solutions such as the pallet changing system, the pallet storage system (PSS-R) and, since this year, the linear pallet storage system (PSS-L) from its own production.

Mindelheim/Hanover. GROB's automation technology enables flexible adaptation to capacities and guarantees perfectly coordinated pallet handling. In the process, GROB offers self-made components for its entire product range, from semi-automatic to fully automatic production with the highest quality standards. The automation solutions ensure an efficient production process and guarantee optimal work piece handling. All fully automatic technologies come from our own production and can be optimally adapted to the specific needs of the customers.

 

New in the GROB production program since this year is the linear pallet storage system (PSS-L), which will be presented for the first time at the EMO and is ideally suited as a modular system for individual machines or for interlinking the same machining systems. With it, up to five machine tools can be connected to a pallet storage racking with a maximum of 87 tool pockets, a significant increase in machine utilization and economic production can be achieved and a longer unmanned production period can be made possible.

 

In addition, the linear pallet storage system (PSS-L) offers the possibility of connecting up to five machine tools to a pallet storage racking with up to 87 tool pockets and is a modular, expandable system consisting of at least one basic module. It is also system-flexible and can be expanded by up to four extension modules and additional setup stations. The basic and extension module is available with up to three storage levels and ensures a fast pallet change thanks to a highly dynamic shuttle transfer system. The optimally accessible setup station can be flexibly extended and positioned, with the possibility of crane loading, whose modern, flexible production control software with 24-inch touch screen panel visualizes and organizes production orders. Other advantages of the linear pallet storage system include a high storage density with a small footprint, a cost-conscious acquisition investment, as well as the excellent visibility into the work space and the pallet storage locations.
