The new robot.work robot solution from IMA Schelling enables full automation of the fh4 and fh5 saws, significantly increasing productivity.
IMA Schelling is launching the robot.work automation solution for efficient working and increased productivity. This new innovation is for the fh5 and fh4 saws. Jan Frederik Bode, Product Manager Robotics explains that this newly developed robot solution will help the automatic working of processes, thereby “Production can take place unstaffed over long distances,” The company also believes that this automatic working process can not only produce better work but will also open scopes for employees to focus on more value-adding activities while the other matters are handled by the robot.work robot solution.
This robot solution enables the full automation of the fh4 and fh5 saws. The robot picks and turns the cut strips and finished parts removing them again for further processing. The finished parts can be transported further along a straight or angled chain. They can also be stacked on pallets on the ground. The room and the saw remains threshold-free as the no additional equipment are required. This solution can process raw boards that have dimensions up to 3200 x 2100 mm. An additional waste disposal unit is also present which is automated via a waste flap, vibration conveyor or chipper.
IMA Schelling presented the robot solution fh5 Robot.work live in action at LIGNA , where they partnered with Austria based company Egger for the supply of wooden boards for strip handling. The highly developed automation solution is built with various practical features. It also has a hybrid operating system which means that one can switch in between automated and manual machining according to the change of materials that are to be machined. The solution can even be retrofitted as part of modernization works. Thus, Jan Frederik Bode concludes that “It means that customers can automate their production process in stages and do not have to commit to a large investment all at once,” which stands out to be a great benefit for all the customers.
