CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies’ lineup of Autoload gantry loading systems is designed to automate parts loading for new and existing CNC lathes. The gantry loading systems come in various sizes with single- or twin-arm gantries. The loading area is guarded with a light curtain or safety door to protect the operator. Loader stations come in either stocker- or pallet-style loading and unloading styles, with optional inbound/outbound conveyor and flip-over station.

Accessories include a servo-driven B axis on the gripper that can rotate 0 to 360 degrees and is designed for easy and fast loading of twin-spindle lathes. All models come with a pneumatically operated gripper driven by a rotary cylinder. The gripper’s rotating angle is 180 degrees (without a B axis).
