Model RMT Robotic Machine Tender
The Adaptec Model RMT Robotic Machine Tender is a flexible automation platform for machine tending and is perfect for servicing either one or two machine tools. Parts may be conveyed into and out of the cell within plastic totes on the included modular belt conveyors or directly on the belts themselves with multi-lane guide rails and part nesting.
How Does It Work?
The included FANUC LRMate 6-Axis robot, with available part specific tooling, grips a raw part from the infeed conveyor tote or directly from the infeed belt, and loads it into the appropriate machine tool work holding. After machining, the part is loaded back into the tote or placed directly onto the conveyor.
Dual grippers are available to minimize the load/unload time within the machine tool. Based on the required cycle rate, the robot may also handle transferring the empty raw part tote from the infeed conveyor unload position to the outfeed conveyor finished part load position.
