The SECKLER modulo handling cell offers individual and fully automated unload/load solutions for your machine tool.
The SECKLER modulo guarantees fast cycle times; even under extreme conditions. The cell has a compact space-saving design, can be retrofitted very easily as it is designed with future modifications in mind, and is expandable at any time. This of course has a positive effect on delivery terms and investments!
- Compact, space-saving design
- Modular system to shorten build times
- Fast, consistent part exchange times
- Constantly upgradeable, easily modified, always reusable
- High productivity, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week...
- High availability of systems
- Tailored, customer-oriented solutions
- Highly economical systems – rapid ROI
- Technological details handled in the strictest confidence
- CE marked and ISO 9001 certified
The SECKLER modulohandling system is designed for demanding applications in production machines, and is the fruit of experience and contact with customers.
All SECKLER modulo systems must comply to internal quality guidelines:
- Functionality (as little movement as possible)
- Quality (best materials and highly qualified employees)
- Stability (proved with calculations)
- Speed (best part exchange times)
- Flexible retooling (wide range of applications)
The entire area of the cell can be reached with a SCARA arm and fitted with the necessary accessories. The control system is integrated in the lower part of the base frame.
The Plug & Go principle means you can start with basic equipment and one pallet drawer. You can then add a pallet conveyor or a stacking box for example at any later date.
Optimised build times
You can use the SECKLER modulo system to realise many projects more quickly. Build times can be significantly reduced with well-planned logistics and production processes.
Optimum quality assurance in component production
Despite their high productivity, SECKLER machines produce high-quality components every time. And the quality is obvious – with fewer rejects and fully automatic measuring systems that reveal the finest detail with micro precision.
Higher quality with lower cost
The purpose of an investment is to improve productivity. SECKLER can help you drive down costs per item even further, while improving the quality of components.
Systems that pay for themselves
SECKLER machines are reliable and easy to operate. A single person is able to control a number of machines at a time. Unmanned shifts are a further possibility. This increases the machine running time, speeding up the return on investment. Saving you money.
Description of a highly complex match grinding production cell
The system shown here is a highly complex production facility for the match grinding of high-precision items used in diesel injection industry.
The pistons are supplied on a bowl feeder. The body is transported into the modulo cell using pallets on pallet drawers. The SCARA arm picks the body from the pallet and the piston from the bowl feeder.
The body is placed on a pre-process gage, where the bore and seat depth are measured. The measured result is passed to the external grinder.
The data matrix code of the item is also read by a camera. The code identifies the item and is used by the SECKLER modulo control system to communicate with the database of the customer‘s host computer.
The piston is moved to the grinder. After grinding, the piston is measured on a post-process gage, deburred and washed. The body and the piston are then placed on a pallet as a pair.
The system can be upgraded with a robot to automatically assemble the pair.
One of the great strengths of SECKLER modulo is the sophisticated modular concept, offering a range of tried-and-tested compatible modules. The modules can be used to create reliable systems ready for all kinds of production jobs in a very short time.
The SECKLER modulo handling cell consists of a robust base frame and an ergonomically designed, transparent full-width enclosure. Part exchange is done by a SCARA palletising axis or an additional linear carriage with gripper module. In the basic version, the cell has two pallet drawers and one combination drawer for rejects and SPC (Statistical Process Control).
Various interchangeable gripper modules are available for handling, including V grippers, swivel arm loaders, double gripper heads, quick-change grippers and gripper heads for rotationally symmetrical and cubic parts.
SECKLER modulo can also be fitted with a pallet stacking box or easily upgraded to connect to a pallet conveyor.
The system is using a Siemens controller with graphical user interface. The AC servo drives are also made by Siemens. A mobile handbox is provided in addition to the touch screen panel.
Production data management is available as an option, with a connection to the customer database.
The basic equipment consists of the following:
- Base frame with gantry
- SCARA palletising axis
- Pallet drawers
- Combination drawer for rejects and SPC
- Siemens controller with touch screen and mobile handbox
Additional peripheral modules are available:
- Single-lane pallet conveyor for different pallet sizes
- In- and outlet conveyor
- Sequencer and discharge conveyor
- Pallet stacking box
- Bowl feeder
- Supply and discharge chutes
The SECKLER modulo 300 has been developed for handling items weighing up to approx. 1 kg.
We developed the SECKLER modulo 500 in response to the lasting success of SECKLER modulo 300 and the growing customer interest in a larger version.
