Increasing spindle utilization and lights-out manufacturing; minimizing lead times and scrap; offer safe, ergonomic and interesting jobs…everyone has a reason to automate. The question is: How to Automate? Welcome to Fastems’ educational showcase at IMTS 2024 to learn from our experiences from over 5,000 large and small automation projects. The showcase is intended for subcontracting and OEM manufacturers, as well as other professionals wanting to learn the practical steps to automate 4 and 5-axis milling machining centers.


Learning Sessions: First Steps to Automate Milling Machining Centers

Ttake in a 15-minute learning session on automating 4 and 5-axis machining centers. We will share the steps to automate your machine tool that meet your unique production needs. We will also demonstrate our Flexible Pallet Tower (FPT) – a single-machine automation system for horizontal and vertical milling machines with pallet changers or tables for zero-point plates.

Join the demo sessions and learn:

  • Which kind of automation is suitable for which machining center?
  • What are the technical requirements for a machine tool to be automated?
  • Your facility: limitations and preparations for automation
  • How to ensure automation meets your production needs (part mix, sizes, production volumes, etc.)?
  • How to prepare your organization for automation?

Demo sessions on Tuesday 10 September at 11 AM and 4 PM, booth 338966 in South Hall! You can also book your own demo by selecting suitable time from our calendar.
