Automatic pallet system

Loading and transferring materials and parts play an essential role in ensuring process efficiency and production quality. Regardless of the machining being completed in one machine or several, materials and finished parts need to be transferred in the production.

MODIG’s pallet systems will take your machine automation to new heights, giving you an impressive minimal footprint in a fully automatic palletized cell. The pallet system, including a pallet mover and a pallet lifter, makes the transfers and setups between the process phase precise and fast. It knows exactly how the workpiece or pallet is placed when the previous procedure finishes and manages the workpiece or pallet precisely the same way, every time! The number of pallets is customized to your needs and production.

The World’s largest pallet system

MODIG can boast having the world’s largest pallet system that includes three pallets. A pallet system up to 950″ (24 m) long provides greater efficiency, cost reduction, productivity, and improved cash flow by reducing inventory costs.

Our pallet system is available for our machining center: RigiMill MT, RigiMill MG, H12, U19 and IM machine series.

Bar feeder system

Bar feeder systems help improve productivity, throughput, and quality. It is suitable for extrusion, plates and bars and is available for our machining center within the HHV-family: HHV2, HHV3 and HHV DUO.

One operator running up to five machines

Our efficient bar feeder system is the secret behind a single operator simultaneously running four to five MODIG machines. An HHV machining center equipped with an in-feeder, automatically loading bar, extrusion, or plate to the machine, could continue to make parts until the bar feeder is empty. Then, the operator only needs to check that all machines are running correctly and loading the feeder with material when required. The bar feeder can handle up to 20 bars, and each bar can have the maximum length of 315” (8 m). Adding a robot or an out-feeder enables even higher efficiency.

Loading system

Robotic loading and unloading

By adding loading robots to your machines, you will improve both your production speed, capacity, and in the long run, your profitability. The robots will automatically be loading materials quickly and safely to your machining center to improve system uptime and increase quality by eliminating human errors. It will also efficiently streamline your production with higher throughput and more profit as a result.

In high-volume production, such as the automotive industry, it is essential to have finished parts marked and checked. MODIG offers a robotic solution to fulfill this need. A robot taking out the machined component and performing all steps with marking and checking makes the process reproducible. In the best case, manual intervention from the process can even be completely eliminated.

We offer robotic loading/unloading solutions for our HHV2, HHV3, HHV DUO, IM-6/IM-8 / IM-10, IM-6T/IM-8T/IM-10T, IM-4 DUO/IM-6 DUO/IM-8 DUO, IM-2 QUADRI, P51, D80 and EVM-2.

Overhead loading system

Adding an overhead loading system for our inverted machining centers reduces the floor space needed for loading. A significant advantage because space is at a premium in most production facilities. An overhead loading system will have a great impact on your production and is preferable to be used when the machines are standing side-by-side. Loading overhead makes the transfers and loading between different machines and phases fast, easy, and efficient.

We offer overhead loading systems for our inverted machines, IM-6/IM-8/IM-10, IM-6T/IM-8T/IM-10TIM-4 DUO/IM-6 DUO/IM-8 DUO and IM-2 Quadri.

Robotic tool loading

A good working tool arena makes the machining process more efficient. The robot handles the process of switching tools and alarms for broken and worn tools. The automatic tool loading robot is equipped with a Balluff chip system that monitors and identifies the cutting tool to secure the tool management. Eliminating manual tool movements shortens the machining time, removes human errors, and improves the working ergonomics of the operators. During the machining, you could also easily pick up a tool in the arena, press the button, and the robot brings the tool out.

All our Inverted machining centers, Horizontal machining centers and Vertical machining centers can be equipped with robotic tool loading.
