higher machine capacity
Enormous time savings for tasks such as programming and CAD/CAM
Low acquisition costs
compared to capacity gains
Conventional options for increasing capacity in production
ZERO CLAMP solution
Step 1: Zero point clamping system
Step 2: Automation
Reduce machine table setup times by up to 90%.
Significantly increase spindle operating times throughout the day, night, and at weekends.
Your benefits for day-to-day production work
Automation means manufacturing components efficiently, that is to say with the lowest staffing levels possible, and reliably. At the same time, you can significantly increase your spindle operating times throughout the day, night, and at weekends.
Increasing the machine running time
Utilizing non-productive time as well as breaks, unmanned shifts, or weekends.
Reducing the machine-hour rate while increasing output at the same time.
Enormous cost savings
Reduced unit costs and significantly more efficient use of personnel.
Impressive streamlining of the manufacturing process
One automation solution for several machine types
Can be used for milling and turning machines, among others
Automated part production for small and medium series from approx. 5 units
Different orders can be processed automatically
Flexible handling system
For handling anything from plate cuts to saw cuts.
High component density
Ideal utilization thanks to workpiece storage which can be freely designed (rack). The machine tool remains freely accessible during manual operation.
Workpiece handling of 100 kg
Easy and intuitive programming.
Existing automation solutions are usually rigid and inflexible
Purely horizontal workpiece storage, loading from above.
Modified workpiece geometry (length/width) after machining requires adapted gripper jaws for each blank and finished part.
Gripper specific to the component with gripper jaw adapted for each blank and finished part (modified workpiece geometry).
Relatively complex programming due to six programmable axes.
A pallet and a special fixture specific to the component is needed for each component.
Each component is manually pre-loaded and removed again.
Selecting the right automation solution
One idea – two automation systems
The ZERO CLAMP Zerobot® 100-P and 100-V
Maximum design flexibility thanks to mobile racks. PREMIUM storage space in automated operation with up to three racks.
Flexible storage space
The racks can be used throughout the entire process chain. For example, racks can be moved from storage and production, right up to mounting.
Robots and racks can be positioned freely depending on the type of machine. The space requirement is less than 5 m².
Ample workpiece storage space
You can use up to three racks (max. 1,200 workpieces). Further racks can be prepared during primary processing time.
Individual protective housing.
The automation system can be equipped with a revolving door or a fence
VARIABLE automation system for several machine tools in a small space.
The machine can be transported in one piece by lift truck and is commissioned quickly. It can therefore be used between several machines.
Low space requirements
Rotating double rack, robot, and protective housing are built on an area smaller than 3 m².
Compact double rack
Rotating rack, which can accommodate workpieces on both sides and can therefore be loaded during primary processing time.
Defined protective housing
Integrated protective housing with status indication, either with laser monitoring or protective fence.
Flexible automation guaranteed: Racks with a flexible design
Replace large components prepared on pallets
Directly replace components prepared in centering clamping fixtures
Replace saw cuts in only one automatic clamp
Maximum component size:
Zerobot 100-P: 640 x 320 mm
Zerobot 100-V: 640 x 245 mm/400 x 320
Max. component size 200 x 180 mm
Max. component size 150 x 250 x 130 mm
Storage of different jobs in one rack
The Zerobot system can be connected to almost all machine tools and can also be retrofitted to existing machines.
Automation level 1
Automation level 2
Automation level 3
Creating orders has never been so easy
Set up the rack freely according to your requirements.
Select the required grippers and clamping devices (standard programs) as well as the number of parts to be machined.
When teaching the first part, the loading robot calculates the remaining positions automatically.
The production order can be started as soon as the job has been saved and transferred.
