Automation with uniLoad

A loader solution based on a linear gantry cell with two parallel grippers is offered for the machine types S31 and S33 for the centre distances 650 mm (25.6”) and 1000 mm (40”). The loading system is suitable for parts up to a length of 350 mm (13.75”) and a diameter of max. 100 mm (4”) and thus covers a large range of parts normally produced on these machines. The parts are supplied via a standardized, adjustable prismatic conveyor.
The enclosure of the base module, matched to the machine design, is equipped with a loading hatch as a standard and allows a safe and and clean operation of the system.


  • Standard automation for a large range of parts
  • Cutting-edge set-up wizard for simple and fast setup
  • Quick setup and resetting in less than 15min
  • Very simple workpiece supply
  • No programming knowledge required
  • Expandable for your future needs
