Complement your tool automation system with Tool Service Cell and increase machine tool utilization above 95%
If the tool lifetimes are extremely short and demand for renewed tools is high, tool automation can be extended to optimize the tool setup process, allowing efficient labor utilization for tool reworking. Tool Service Cell (TSC) is integrated with Fastems centralized tool storage, and is equipped with a tool carrying robot, ergonomic tool loading station for insert changes, washing, drying and tool presetting device.
The Fastems Manufacturing Management Software (MMS) calculates the optimal order for tool reworking and makes sure the right tools are automatically brought in. The only thing an operator needs to take care of is switching tool inserts in a tool loading station. The tool loading station holds up to four tools at once.
Why should you invest in Tool Service Cell:
- Machine tool utilization above 95%
- Efficient labor utilization for tool reworking
- Ergonomic and easy to use
- Reduced resource needs for tool reworking – labor savings
- Automatic import of tools needing a rework
- Ergonomic tool insert changes for up to four tools at once
- Extended unmanned production hours
The TSC works seamlessly with Fastems’ tool automation solutions Central Tool Storage (CTS) and Gantry Tool Storage (GTS).
