Mitsubishi LoadMate Plus™ Machine Tending Robotic Cell
Automation…It’s Easier Than You Think!
Need to automate but just don’t know where to start? Introducing the Mitsubishi Electric LoadMate Plus™ Machine Tending Robotic Cell for adding automation to CNC applications. Load, unload, and palletize your parts in any low-to-high volume application!
Absolute Machine Tools, in cooperation with Mitsubishi Electric’s Automation Division, is proud to present our newest robotic CNC machine tending cell. This plug and play cell was designed and engineered to be a compact heavy-duty portable robotic cell for manufacturers requiring the strength of an industrial robot with safety-first functionality. This cost-effective robotic cell allows for quick & easy setups, high performance and accuracy, safety-first functionality, and maximum portability for all types of manufacturers with high/low mix production. Additional guarding and fencing may not be necessary when LoadMate Plus is positioned correctly in tandem or close proximity with a CNC. Users can learn LoadMate’s one-step process of integrating the robot cell to a CNC machine using Mitsubishi’s Direct Robot Control Function, all done with one (1) single Ethernet cable.
The LoadMate Plus is so versatile that you can use several different models of Mitsubishi robots within the enclosure, including all RV-7 series, RV-8 series, RV-13, and RV-20 series industrial robots. These robot models have all been tested and proven solid within the cell’s enclosure. The cell enclosure was designed to be heavy-duty to allow for heavy payloads and speeds, and in some cases, may not need anchored into the shop floor. The LoadMate Plus can be moved from machine to machine using its built-in casters, and then set into position using it’s built-in ratchet pads, or optional floor-mount latching system. Another feature of the LoadMate Plus robotic CNC machine tending cell is that user’s will typically only need one teach pendant per facility, and not per machine, which saves a lot of money.
The automation experts at Absolute Machine Tools together with Mitsubishi Electric Automation understands that incorporating effective productive automation into a manufacturer’s productivity processes is essential for American manufacturing to remain competitive and profitable. We took the guess work out of it, allowing companies to do what they do best: produce parts with minimal inefficiencies. Remember, automation can be easier than you think! When your new Mitsubishi LoadMate Plus arrives, you are ready to start programming and making parts!
