HSK-T100 holders are used here as workpiece holders. The workpieces are clamped onto these using vices, screw connections or other clamping systems. Loading and unloading takes place at the frontally accessible set-up station via a door that also allows working with a crane. The solid construction ensures a permanently reliable workpiece change within 41 seconds. This means that the machine can manufacture continuously and without worries, even in unmanned shifts.

You can automate the following machines with the AWC 8 or 20:
