Automation in the spotlight

XYZ Machine Tools (Stand J210) will shine the spotlight on automation, five-axis machining and the latest ProtoTRAK control system developments.

The company’s robot-based automation cell, Robo-Tend, will take centre stage. This modular and mobile robot automation system is designed for use with XYZ vertical machining and turning centres fitted with Siemens controls. At Southern Manufacturing, the system will be demonstrated attached to an XYZ 750 LR vertical machining centre.
Robo-Tend has been designed to bring automation within the reach of traditional subcontract engineering businesses, offering potential payback in just a few months. Also at the show, for those seeking full, simultaneous five-axis machining, the XYZ UMC-5X with front loading 600 mm diameter trunnion rotary table will be demonstrated.
