Machines and automation adapted

At H.P. Kaysser, leading international sheet metal processor/system supplier, the batch sizes are reducing, while the requirements continue to increase. Long setting times, a large stock and the problem of precise deadline control will all be resolved by the Automation LoadMaster® from Schuler in conjunction with the HELLER MCH 300 and MCH 350-C machining centres.

Task

  • to expand a three-layer system at the limits of its capacity, consisting of an automation system with 20 tool pockets and the HELLER MCH 300 machining centre
  • to integrate the entire workpiece management strategy into the system
  • small to medium batch sizes and just-in-sequence production facility
  • enhanced flexibility and productivity

Project scope & solution

  • Automation LoadMaster® from Schuler in conjunction with the HELLER MCH 300 and MCH 350-C machining centres
  • Automation LoadMaster® offers a storage capacity of 45 machine pallets on 3-level and 77 storage locations for the raw material over 5-level Euro pallets/Euro wire mesh crates

Result

  • 50 to 80 percent gain in chip-to-chip times
  • machine availability increased from 82 to just on 90 percent
  • in the case of long-running items (involving eight to nine hours per workpiece), a machine running time of 600 hours per month already achieved
