Processing Station - Handling, Transporting, Pressing

A two-axes handling system is picking workpieces by its vacuum gripper, turns by 180 and puts them into the working area of a hydraulic press. From here, the workpieces are pushed into the pressing equipment. After the safety cage of the press is closed, the pressing process is started by a hydraulic cylinder. At the end of the process, a pneumatic cylinder pushes the workpieces out of the working area through the open safety door in order to bring them to the Handling Unit's disposal. The press provides a working area, which is closed all around. The safety walls are made of plexiglas and enable good visibility to survey the pressing process.
