Euler invests in robotic machines from Halter

Euler Feinmechanik has invested in three robotic machine tending systems from Halter in the Netherlands to automate the loading and unloading of DMG Mori lathes.
The DMG Mori lathe is primarily used for machining components from 130 mm to 150 mm in diameter. After automating the machine with the Halter cell, productivity increased by about 25%.
After purchasing the first DMG Mori turning centre and retrofitting it with automated loading and unloading, Euler Feinmechanik bought two more lathes: one is another CTX beta 800 4A, while the second is a smaller CLX 350.
The two new machines were immediately equipped with Industry 4.0-compliant Halter loading robots identical to the first. Production on all three twin-spindle lathes can continue unattended for an average of half a shift, which maximises productivity and reduces labour costs.
Automation has improved production efficiency to such an extent that the subcontractor intends to continue automating its plant. A Halter LoadAssistant is planned for an existing DMG Mori lathe on the shop floor and asking Halter to add additional functions like workpiece polishing and grinding to the automation cells is being considered.
