CNC automation supplier Fastems will showcase its flexible automation systems with experts available to discuss how even the smallest machining shops can succeed in creating automated manufacturing operations in booth A43, Hall 10, at AMB 2024. Each day will feature educational sessions on machine shop productivity and live Fastems CNC automation system demonstrations.

For automating milling machining centers, Fastems is showcasing its entire flexible manufacturing system portfolio via Living Factory, made real by a demo unit of a newly launched Flexible Pallet System (FPS) and the new version 8.2 of the industry-leading automation control software MMS. FPS is designed to automate 4 and 5 axis machining centers – also vertical ones – with 300-630 mm pallets or zero-point plates. FPS is a configurable system with 360-degree design, meaning that the shopfloor space can be utilized from all four sides and the pallet storage is configured to fit maximum number of pallets.

The automation control software MMS is designed to plan, run, and control mixed manufacturing, and its latest version 8.2 brings new features related to machining sustainability and flexibility in turning machine tool automation. The myFastems digital service enables manufacturers to take the most out of their Fastems automation systems every day, at the convenience of their own mobile device. Fastems is also displaying its factory MES solution, Work Cell Operations (WCO), that can plan the operation of manual work cells, stand-alone machine tools, and automation systems in a single instance. Factory Cockpit collects, visualizes, and analyzes production data at factory-level for full production transparency and data-based development.

To help manufacturers improve the cutting tool processes that are often the reason for low CNC spindle utilization, Fastems experts will discuss the best cutting tool practices and how automation can help in physical tool delivery and managing tool data, including tool wear. To reduce tool investment and minimize tool reworking time, Fastems introduces its tool automation systems for milling machines, and is excited to announce the new automation concept for turning machine cutting tool turrets, Turret Tool Changer.

Fastems automation specialists will be available for discussion and demonstrations throughout the week during the show. Attendees will not want to miss the daily learning sessions as outlined below:
