APC- Automatic Pallet changer system

The palletizing system on the machine serves first for removal of unproductive time during machining. Within one working cycle machining can be carried out on one pallet, while the others can be used for preparation (seating and clamping of work-pieces etc.) The palletizing system consists of two, or more pallets (acc. to customer requirements).

Pallet dimension:

                                  1 600 x 1 800 mm - maximal load 10 t

                                  1 800 x 2 200 mm - maximal load 10 t    

Description of pallet shifting-over



The pallet exchange process is performed in three phases:

·            first, the shifting-over slide should be connected to the rotation slide on the X-axis by pins, which should be inserted into the lock. This shifting motion is provided by a pinion and a rack.

·            within the second phase the pallet itself is shifted-over by a chain, where the pallet is drifted by the pin up to the clamping position

·            during the last phase the fixing and clamping is carried out by means of the precise centring pins and hydraulics.

·            after this phase the shifting-over slide will be disconnected and the pallet is ready in its machining position.

·            the whole cycle of the pallet exchange takes approx. 100 sec.
