Frequent changes to production variables have the potential to massively impact productivity and profitability. The AUTO FLEX CELL is a unique automation solution for the INTEGREX i-series, developed for highly flexible manufacturing environments.
Designed to increase the profitability of jobs requiring frequent changes of tooling, chuck jaws or workpiece, the cell maximises machining hours by reducing product turnaround time – in turn delivering a lower component cost price and increased profitability.
The cell is equipped with five interchangeable carts carrying additional robot hands, chuck jaws and workpieces that can be quickly changed by the robot. The AUTO FLEX CELL is programmed and controlled from Mazak’s SmoothAi CNC.
