June 2, 2020 – GROB Systems, a developer of manufacturing systems and machine tools, announces its linear pallet storage system (PSS-L) – an automated, flexible manufacturing line that complements a variety of part types.
The PSS-L is suited as a modular system for individual machines or for interlinking the same machining systems. With it, up to five machine tools – including the G550a, G552 and G552T – can be connected to a pallet storage racking with a maximum of 87 pallet positions. The PSS-L can also operate “locked out” of a system, as an independent machine.
The PSS-L is equipped with a linear traveling pallet changer system with a pallet gripper to transport the materials between setting stations, work-piece deposits and machines. No cable track is used and the pallets are staged close to the machine to prevent long exchange times.
The system also comes with production control software, so that users have an organization of pallets and parts with associated process steps. Customers can have autonomous part and pallet control while considering resources, along with monitoring and verification of tool resources for all scheduled orders.
