Model MD Robotic MiniDrawer™

The MD Robotic MiniDrawer™ cabinet provides convenient and compact parts storage for part processing small parts within a robotic automation cell and is available to both integrators and end users.

How Does It Work?

An operator simply opens each of the drawers from outside the robot cell, places raw parts into each drawer fixture and then closes each drawer. Next, the operator cycle starts both the machine tool and the robot. The robot moves to the top drawer, lifts the drawer handle, pulls the drawer into the robot cell and locks it into position for part unloading.

The robot now unhooks from the drawer handle, picks the first part from the drawer and then loads the machine tool. On the next cycle, a finished part is unloaded from the machine tool and a new raw part is loaded. The robot moves back to the drawer to place the finished part back into the drawer. As drawers are completed, the robot moves down to the next available drawer.
