The fully automated FG series cell loader systems from Murata Machinery USA’s Muratec machine tool division uses servo-control technology for axis drive, programmable parts-stacking patterns and integrated Fanuc-based FMS-control systems for increased flexibility in sheet-metal automation.
 
Micro-pointless parts production enables the loaders to remove finished parts processed by punch press or laser cut, then sort and stack them on finished parts pallets. Expandable loader arms with multiple vacuum pads and programmable stacking patterns provide flexibility to automatically unload different shapes and sizes of finished sheets and parts. The systems’ compact design also enables operators to load and unload from either side of the punch press, further increasing flexibility, efficiency and productivity, the company says.
