Magazine capacity

There are two types of magazine, light (L) and heavy (H).
Up to three magazines can be connected to the changer unit in any combination whatsoever.

One magazine: L or H.
Two magazines: L + L, H + H or L + H.
Three magazines: L + L + L, H + H + H, L + H + H or L + L + H.
Note: Each individual magazine is intended for one and the same pallet system.

The magazine’s capacity is determined entirely by the shape and size of the workpieces. The tables below show only “guideline values” for each pallet system carrying workpieces of a “standard” size and shape.
