Automation with smartLoad

The smartLoad is an integrated loader which picks up the parts outside the machine, loads them into the clamping system and deposits them outside the machine again. This function can be combined with different peripheral systems and offers a wide range of possible applications. Individual transfers, small series with a wide variety of parts and large series are possible. The peripheral system is either delivered by STUDER as a standard solution or provided by the customer. The movement of the smartLoad is path-controlled, which simplifies its control. Its strengths are its compactness, its quick and easy installation as well as simple operation. The smartLoad is available in two standard versions with different stroke lengths. The grippers can be customized to meet the customer's requirements.



  • Fully integrated standard automation
  • Simple workpiece preparation
  • Programming via machine control
  • Short delivery time thanks to standardization
