  • Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, an established MC Machinery automation solutions partner, has teamed up with ASTES4 to offer its laser automation solution. This multifunctional system is the first fully integrated system capable of controlling the entire production process from loading, cutting, sorting, and unloading through to the storage of finished parts.

    The system utilizes four cartesian grippers for loading, unloading, and the sorting of parts. Each gripper is capable of using a vacuum or magnetic tools in a variety of shapes and sizes to produce a more effective sorting speed. The process sorts the parts into kits, and its wide variety of options allows for different material thicknesses to be kitted on the same pallet. Downstream processes are taken into account to provide seamless integration into the production process.

    “We are very excited to unveil the ASTES4 system at FABTECH,” stated Shane Herendeen, North American Sales Manager – Fabrication Division. “This new automation system will change the way companies use their machines and sort their parts, and is a huge step forward for our entire industry.”

    Its software automatically optimizes and manages the production process through to storage, without the user having to intervene. Remote access and a camera system allow for continuous monitoring and intervention if needed.

  • MC Machinery Systems is proud to introduce its new high-capacity automatic tool changer (ATC) for its BH series of dual-drive press brakes. The ATC is designed to increase production levels and utilization rates while reducing setup time, especially in high-mix, low-volume environments.

    The ATC allows for fully automated tool setup and removal, freeing up the operator to perform other tasks. Its available 107.3 x 170.6-foot storage capacity allows for the greatest tooling variation on the market ranging from high-runner V-dies to specialized hemming or offset tools. Up to two-inch V-die openings and 19.7-inch lengths can be placed with the single, large-capacity tool manipulator with the added functionality of pick and place for small tool sections for setups that do not require the full setup to be removed. The manipulator is also equipped with a tool & bed cleaner that runs automatically during tool changes.

    The ATC is engineered for operators of all experience levels. Programs can be created offline using DiamondBend software, at the control, or imported from other MOS controlled press brakes. Further support for operators is available with MC Machinery’s VIDERE operator support system for real-time bending information, sequences, and automatic tool changes.

    “More companies are looking at adding tool changers to their forming departments,” stated David Bray, Product Manager, Press Brakes. “This trend has gained momentum due to a perfect storm of industry and market factors, such as updating their laser processing equipment or finding qualified people to staff their forming departments. Metalworking companies are seeking ways to add efficiency to their blanking departments. The BH Dual Drive ATC offers the largest storage with the most flexibility, it is the conclusive solution for customers looking for improved production and increased efficiency.”

    Machines equipped with the ATC are not limited to the tools in the changer’s storage. The machine can be used as a stand-alone press brake or automated system, allowing for the flexibility for one-off jobs.
