Fastems do difficult things. Founded in 1901, Fastems are recognised globally as market leaders in the field of Factory Automation & Digital Manuf
Fastems’ Central Tool Storage (CTS) and Gantry Tool Storage (GTS) enable the use of small tool magazines, eliminate human errors and reduce capital investment in tools. Machine control integration enables a machine tool to start machining even if all the required tools are not in its magazine. The real time information of needed tools is always available.
Fastems’ tool automation is suitable when a large variety of different or expensive tools are needed and one wants to secure tool availability.
Why should you invest in tool automation:
- Tool availability just in time
- Reduce costs by sharing tools
- Extended unmanned production hours
- Enable flexible and automatic tool management
- No tool data or human errors
The tool automation can be built either on the factory floor level or above the machine tools.
