“For me, certainly the best loading system on the market!”
Featuring a double gripper, the SherpaLoader® completes the unloading from the CNC machine and its loading with the next part within only 15 seconds. When machining is in progress, the SherpaLoader® places the unloaded part on the material car, picks up a new one, and waits in front of the CNC machine door for the next cycle to begin.
Unbeatable: In just 5 minutes the SherpaLoader® is set up for a different workpiece. How that is possible? By optical recognition of workpieces, even randomly placed ones, that displaces mechanical positioning systems. When changing a workpiece, only the gripper fingers need to be adjusted. Your SherpaLoader® is up and running again while traditional loading systems are still adapted to the next workpiece!
SherpaLoader® maximizes the spindle time of costly production machines while reducing workforce requirements to a minimum. Replacing traditional mechanics with digital innovations, the pay-back period of SherpaLoader® can be as short as 12 months.
Operated with two material cars, the SherpaLoader® offers a space of 0.9 square meters to supply workpieces. Randomly placed at a distance of 20 mm to neighboring parts, the capacity exceeds 240 cylinders 40 mm, or 64 cuboids 90x90 mm. With the SpaceBox, capacity even exceeds 1000 parts, allowing for autonomous running over an entire weekend.
0% Redundant Workload
Applying camera and laser technology, the SherpaLoader® dispenses with grid plates and magazines. Once loaded on material cars, euro-pallets, or the SpaceBox, workpieces are not manually handled again until the end of the production process. This feature reduces the manual workload, and it increases the ergonomics for CNC operators.
100% Spare Parts Availability
All standard components of the SherpaLoader® are stocked and available for shipment within 48 hours. With the network of authorized service partners, competent assistance is available on-site within a few hours’ drive, in the unlikely case that things go wrong.
