MT-S Spindle Gripper Allows Continued Machined Cycles

Jergens Custom Design & Build (CD&B) is growing its automation offerings for unmanned and lights out manufacturing. That includes combinations of such products as a machine washdown tool, Zero Point System (ZPS), a range of pneumatic and hydraulic devices, and a new spindle gripper for first level automation without a robot.

The MT-S spindle gripper allows continued machined cycles by picking and placing finished components in a temporary part loading tray located within the machining area. The MT-S is stored in the tool magazine like any tool and engaged at the end of each cycle allowing continuous machining until the part loading tray is full. Advantages of the new gripper are no additional floorspace needed, lower initial investment compared to robotics, and fast training without extensive programing.

Jergens will present its expanded range of modular quick-change workholding solutions and automation capabilities at the International Manufacturing Technology Show, September 9-14 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Featured products will include the company’s range of 5-axis vises and top tooling, cast iron tooling columns, Zero Point System, low profile clamping and Quick-Loc™ (QL Combo) pallets.
