Now is an especially challenging time for machine shops facing capacity shortfalls and labor shortages. To address these struggles, Acieta introduced its simplest to use, most flexible cobot solution ever: the FastLOAD CX1000 collaborative expandable robotic cell.
To prevent shop equipment from sitting idle, the FastLOAD CX1000 is mounted on a mobile platform that one worker can move easily so it can be quickly set up at different machines around the shop. The system is equipped with a FANUC 10KG, 120 V collaborative robotic arm to master material handling tasks. It can be outfitted with up to three modular carts to handle a wide variety of parts or allow more parts in the queue.
