To make the unloading process more efficient, Bardons&Oliver offers a robot unloader for CNC machines. After the part is cut off and discharged, a lifting mechanism positions the part so it can be unloaded by the robot arm. Lifting the parts with a magnet, the unloader can be programmed to tilt the part to dump any coolant prior to stacking. It can then stack the part in a bundle frame or move the part to the next operation. With the ability to swing 180 degrees, the robot can service two machines by swinging back and forth.
