Tool Service Cell
Do you need to constantly rework your cutting tools?
If the tool lifetimes are extremely short and demand for renewed tools is high, tool automation can be extended to optimize the tool setup process, allowing efficient labor utilization for tool reworking.
Tool Service Cell (TSC) is integrated with Fastems centralized tool storage, and is equipped with a tool carrying robot, ergonomic tool loading station for insert changes, washing, drying and tool presetting device. MMS calculates the optimal order for tool reworking and makes sure the right tools are automatically brought in. The only thing operator needs to take care of is switching tool inserts in a tool loading station that holds up to four tools at once.
