Loading Haas Machine Tool


A FANUC M-10iA robot loads a Haas machine tool through an automated side door. Use of a powered side door maintains full operator access to the machine tool operator panel. A fixed camera and FANUC built-in iRVision allows the randomly placed parts to be accurately picked from the conveyor belt. Use of a dual part gripper allows the finished part pick-up and raw part loading time to occur quickly.


Key Technology Demonstrated

  Made For Machine Tools
  • Increased productivity. Robots increase machine production by up to 20% over traditional methods.
  • Perform secondary operations. For longer machining times robot can perform deburring or guaging of finished parts.
  • Improved Ergonomics. Robot can eliminate workman's compensation and operator safety issues with moving heavy parts.
  • Increased Quality. Built-in vision can 100% inspect.
  • Robot repeatability assures placement in chuck.
  • Eliminate Fixtures. Vision can be used to find parts on belt conveyor(2D) or on pallet(3D).
