The RoboTrex 52 automatic handling system operates the machining centre from an automation trolley, which serves as a storage medium for the vices. Depending on the part size, the trolley can store up to 42 vices. RoboTrex 52 is optionally available with up to four trolleys, which means that the storage capacity can be increased to up to 168 vices. The heart of the system is the patented vertical positioning of the vices: it ensures maximum space utilisation and guarantees best accessibility. The external pre-loading of the automation trolleys allows RoboTrex 52 Automation to be re-equipped within seconds. This ensures that no unnecessary downtimes of the machining centre are caused.
