Kitagawa North-Tech will demonstrate its Automated Jaw Pallet System (AJPS) for robot-tended CNC milling/turning cells. The system is applicable in flexible high-mix, low to moderate volume machining.   

This system, in conjunction with the company’s Promano grippers, provides flexibility in a robot-tended machining environment by automating the workholding and part holding change-over, allowing the cell to run many different parts in low volumes consecutively, congruently and unattended.

The system features jaw pallets that are designed to maintain close tolerance between changes, enabling high accuracy and repeatability of both locating and gripping geometries. Pallets are equipped with special jaws and dust covers designed to prevent contaminants from intrusion, and can be supplied with part-specific engineered workholding solutions.
