Steel working machine extended with tool storage

Hembrug bv in Haarlem, a respected producer of steel working CNC machines with extremely close tolerances, asked us to design a tool warehouse for 3 heads, 50 tools with two different holders, for one model of their machines. This is to enable automatic tool changes for this type of machine.

In close collaboration with our client, we developed a concept, which we later transformed in a detailed design. The emphasis in the design has been mainly on scalability of the solution and on an efficient and effective manufacturability. This to keep production costs as low as possible without giving in to the required quality standards.

After the detailed design was approved, Pentacon was also contributed to the production of the system.
