The JobShop Cell from Methods Machine Tools is an integrated production cell that combines a fast RoboDrill Vertical Machining Center with an interfaced FANUC six-axis robot for automated loading/unloading. The cell comes with inbound and outbound conveyors and guarding, and handles most parts that will fit in its 6-in vise or chuck. The work-handling interface accommodates a variety of hydraulic or pneumatic work-holding options. An optional fourth axis and work-holding fixture further increases the cell’s utility. The cell offers a 14-tool or optional 21-tool changer; torque to 56 lb·ft; rigid tapping to 5000 rpm (8000 rpm optional); accelerations in x, y, and z axes to 1.5 g; rapid traverses to 2125 in/min; and feed rates to 1181 in/min (2362 in/min optional).
