Drake offers fully integrated automation systems including robot load, pallet and magazine systems. Our robot load system for grinders features an adjustable infeed conveyor and grippers designed by Drake for maximum flexibility. The entire grinding and load/unload process is programmed into the machine control by Drake. The system provides consistent handling and maximum throughput for increased productivity.
We recently shipped a tap grinder with a robot loading and pallet changing system that delivers up to 9 full pallets of tools. Depending on tool diameter and pallet density, this system can provide up to 30 hours of unattended running!
