May 16, 2016 – Kitagawa North-Tech, Inc., a provider of workholding products, standard and custom engineered solutions and services introduced their Automated Jaw Pallet System (AJPS) for robot-tended CNC Mill/Turning cells, utilized in flexible automated production environments.
The Kitagawa Automated Jaw Pallet System in conjunction with Kitagawa Promano Grippers provide flexibility in a robot-tended machining environment by automating the workholding and part holding change-over, allowing the cell to run many different parts in low volumes consecutively, congruently and un-attended. It is an automation solution for lights out, unattended machining of parts in low volumes in robot-tended CNC Mill/Turning centers.
The Automated Jaw Pallet System is designed to break financial barriers associated with implementing robotic automation and automated workholding in CNC machining and parts production operations. Kitagawa’s AJPS is used to run multiple jobs consecutively overnight, from one to another for productivity, efficiency and profits in machine shops.
