Extreme flexibility in service of your needs is the heart and soul of the TRANSFORMER, a scalable Automation system based on standardized modules. The TRANSFORMER allows you to begin with one or two machines and later add machines and magazine capacity, to finally extend the Automation to include up to 12 machines in a single cell.
The machines in a TRANSFORMER cell can be of the same make and type, or the cell can just as easily incorporate different machining technologies and come from different manufacturers. Open architecture is one of the system’s clear advantages. You select the machine or machines that best meet your specific manufacturing requirements and the TRANSFORMER — custom configured for your specific needs — complements that choice. Flexibility and productivity remain in constant focus, whatever your choice.
The Automation system handles workpieces and/or electrodes that are mounted on pallets (i.e., based on a reference system, more commonly known as tooling). System 3R offers a wide range of tooling systems that provide solutions to palletize work-pieces from small to large or in combination of different systems in the same Automation cell by using chuck adapters. In addition, the TRANSFORMER can handle different tooling systems, so it can be configured even if you already have a tooling system in place in your workshop. Customer-specific solutions are a key ingredient of this system.
