EES has recently secured a Contract to design & manufacture a new, Special Purpose CNC Grinder, for the manufacture of Scalloped Tooth Blades for cutting Bread.
The new machine will incorporate a 6 axis ABB Robot that will not only load & unload parts to the Grind Stations, but also index the component through 180° during the cycle to facilitate grinding of both sides of the Blade.
Richard Vogel, Sales Director, said “This is a very challenging, but very exiting Contract for EES to have won, particularly in the face of stiff competition from Europe. Although EES has previous experience with pick-and-place Gantry Loading Systems, this is our first project to incorporate a true Robot Loader”
Although the machine is only in the early stages of build, the Robot Loader is already generating significant interest from other potential clients who are looking to automate component loading, particularly on Grinding applications.
