AMC –
Agile Manufacturing Cell

What is AMC?

Flexible Batch Manufacturing

In the past the benefits of flexible manufacturing have been challenging to realize on machines that don’t use a pallet such as turning machines. This has been because:

  • Control software features were under-developed
  • Automatic set-up changing technologies were not widely available
  • Set-up changes, including robot cell re-programming, have taken too much time

Fastems Agile Manufacturing Cell (AMC) is a robot-based manufacturing cell that brings the traditional benefits of flexible manufacturing for direct machine tending. In practice it consists of:

  • Fastems control software MMS
  • Machine tool(s) and other processes such as measuring or marking
  • Automatic set-up change technology for machine tools and robot
  • Suitable material storage solution for needed unmanned time with limited investment on fixtures
