Automation with easyLoad

For machine types S31, S33, S22 and S41 a loader solution is offered on the basis of a portal loader system with V-gripper. The loader system is suitable for shaft components up to a part length of 300 mm and a grip diameter of 4 to 30 mm (max. interfering contour - dia. 50 mm); it therefore covers the majority of the spectrum of parts produced on these machines. The parts are supplied via a standardized, adjustable synchronized conveyor. The housing for the base module, which has been adapted to suit the machine design, enables safe and clean operation of the system.



  • Standard automation for a large range of parts
  • Very simple workpiece supply
  • No robot programming knowledge required
  • Short delivery time thanks to standardization
  • Expandable for your future requirements
