The Cross Automated Machine Tending solution is designed to operate a CNC machine tending without constant manual operator interaction. In today’s tight labor market, it’s increasingly difficult to find workers and keep them in repetitive, dull jobs. With a quick ROI period, this solution frees up these workers to do more complicated tasks that can’t be done through automation.
Cross’s Automated Machine Tending Solution uses two way handshaking to communicate directly to the CNC machine. It tells the machine when to run, receives a signal when it is done, operates the tool holder, and open/closes the doors. When purchased with the standard carts, this solution is ready for deployment as soon as it arrives, with minimal pick and place programming required.
