World premieres and top innovations
AMB 2016! Relive!

Flexible production processes at maximum efficiency

Cutting production faces the challenge that customers want faster production with as few steps as possible that also covers the largest possible range of parts. However, this will only work in an efficient way, if all the efficiency potentials of production automation have been consistently and fully used. SCHUNK showcases at the AMB a sophisticated system program for automated loading of machine tools.
Learn more about the innovations from the area of toolholders and stationary workholding, lathe chucks, and chuck jaws.

Automated machine loading

Automated manufacturing of small batch sizes

The successes in automated machine loading are considerable: Even when manufacturing smallest batch sizes and individual parts, it is still possible to reduce the set-up time downtimes, and to utilize the full potential of your machine with minimum staff around the clock. To achieve this, the perfect interplay of components of clamping technology and gripping systems for automated loading and unloading of machine tools and workpiece handling is a decisive factor.

Product details

Minimum set-up times at maximum flexibility

Versatility as a decisive competitive factor

The cutting production faces the challenge that more and more frequent in as few operations possible and with minimum set-up time as the largest possible range of parts has to be covered. More than ever, versatile clamping devices are in demand, which allow the change of various applications, and which also ensure high accuracy and high process stability. By using the matching SCHUNK clamping technologies, you can achieve optimum results.
