The automated production cell is suitable for a wide range of applications
The useful work piece size in this Robodrill cell is for parts with a volume of up to 150 mm x 150 mm x 150 mm. Häberle sees possible applications with this specification in medical technology – one possibility would be the machining of dental implants.
In an application like this, numerous raw part discs are to kept on hand. The machining of implants such as these is complex, not least because the material is very hard. That is why in fully automatic mode, i.e. over the weekend, for example, counterpart tools are used that can be easily stored in the carousel. Examinations at which cycle times workpieces such as these can be machined, are among the services provided by CNC Häberle.
Safety functions ensured by FANUC CNC
Despite all automation: The standard "operating modes" also include manual loading. This is something a contract manufacturer has to do, "Nothing is easier than that" confirms Rainer Häberle. It is not required for the robot cell to be pushed to side, no additional safety door has to be opened. A totally normal unlocking button suffices for access if the part is to be clamped for processing. All the safety functions are ensured via the FANUC CNC safety function.
