PALLETECH SYSTEM

Manufacturing innovation to meet your requirements today as well as tomorrow

 

PALLETECH automated pallet handling across multiple CNC machines.The PALLETECH SYSTEM is designed with the flexibility required for shorter product life cycles, reduced in-process inventory, just-in-time production and other demands of today's manufacturing environment. Automate your pallet loading, stocking and changing across horizontal, vertical, 5-axis machining centers and more.

We offer the PALLETECH MANUFACTURING CELL (single level) and PALLETECH HIGH RISE SYSTEM (2 or 3 levels) according to your production needs.

Furthermore, the PALLETECH SYSTEM is designed to allow for convenient system expansion after the initial installation to easily respond to increased production requirements in the future.

 

The PALLETECH SYSTEM reduces costs in three areas:

1. Lower Investment

System comparison between HCN-6800 with 2-pallet changer, 6-pallet changer and PALLETECH HIGH RISE SYSTEM.
Daily required machine hours : 55 (55 workpieces with 1 hour cycle time)

See how the PALLETECH system increases effective machine hours per machine and decreases the number of machines required

2. Considerable reduction in the number of operators required

See how the PALLETECH automated pallet handling automation reduces the number of operators required and labour expense

3. Reduction of floor space requirements

To efficiently use limited factory floor space, the PALLETECH SYSTEM provides the best solution.
A PALLETECH HIGH RISE SYSTEM when compared with the 2-pallet changer and 6-pallet changer HCN-6800 is shown below.

The PALLETECH is a flexible, extendable, modular configuration depending on the number of machines you wish to integrate and floor space requirement

How does PALLETECH expand to your needs?

PALLETECH is fully expandable to your needs, whether integrating one machine with 12 pallets, or multiple with 240 pallets

Flexible extensibility

A single machine system can be expanded - pallet stocker(s), loading station(s) and machines can be added in response to increased production requirements after the initial system installation.

Extend your PALLETECH as you grow with pallet stockers, loading stations and machines

Pallet stocker

The rail for the loader and the chip pan are integrated with the pallet stocker in order to provide convenient system expansion. The PALLETECH HIGH RISE SYSTEM features a 2/3-level pallet stocker for increased storage capacity with a minimum floor space requirement. Either the PALLETECH MANUFACTURING CELL or PALLETECH HIGH RISE SYSTEM can be selected according to current production requirements and budget. Either system can be easily expanded after the initial installation in response to increased production requirements.

With PALLETECH, you can select from a 1, 2 or 3 level stocker for maximum storage capacity with a minimum footprint.

Loading Station

When a pallet is at the loading station, the pallet can be indexed to 4 positions at every 90 degrees for convenient workpiece loading and unloading. 

Additionally, the loading station is equipped with a safety door as standard equipment to maintain a safe working environment for the operator. The PALLETECH SYSTEM can be equipped with up to a maximum of 8 loading stations.

Add as many loading stations as required to PALLETECH automation

Pallet Loader

Pallets are automatically transferred from the pallet stocker to the loading station and then to a machining center by the pallet loader. The system controller commands the pallet loader according to the registered production schedule. The pallet loader features high speed acceleration and positioning to eliminate non-productive pallet waiting time. Additionally, the loader utilizes 2 different pallet transferring speeds - one when a workpiece is on a pallet and the other when no workpiece is on a pallet.
