Detailed Specification

Mill-Assist Essential

Hydrafeed are the sole UK and Ireland agents for RoboJob’s standard solutions for the loading and unloading of CNC machines

Automation of CNC Machines.

In recent years the machining industry has faced great challenges. It is increasingly difficult to recruit CNC operators; batch sizes have decreased while delivery lead times have shortened.

Hydrafeed, in collaboration with RoboJob, ensures that turning and milling of small and medium-sized batches becomes profitable once again. The Turn-Assist and Mill-Assist robotic systems are integrated solutions which enable the automatic loading and unloading of turning and milling machines. Both systems can be used for a wide range of dimensions (standard ø 5 to 400 mm) and weights (10-700 kg).

The implementation of a RoboJob system will fundamentally reduce the salary costs for machining, and significantly increase the number of spindle hours with substantially less working hours.

CNC Operators can focus on their creative tasks.

The RoboJob system does not require any specific robot knowledge. The user-friendly graphical interface allows all systems to be operated easily and intuitively. CNC operators become more focused on preparation, programming and quality control as the CNC machines are loaded and unloaded automatically.

Highly flexible compact automation that has been specifically developed for the loading and unloading of small and medium sized runs, for workpieces with a length up to Ø450 mm.

Fastest set-up and change-over time

Shortest proven set-up and change-over time in the market: only 5 minutes for a new component and 2 minutes for a repetitive component. Thanks to our extremely user-friendly graphic interface, specific robot knowledge is not required!

Compact, accessible and visible

The Mill-Assist Essential is the most compact loading solution on the market. Moreover you maintain a good overview of the automation and on your machine park at all times. The view is not obstructed thanks to the open set-up of the Mill-Assist, which can be set up in front of or next to the machine.

Most comprehensive standard functions

The Mill-Assist Essential offers an extremely wide range of standard functions, which increase the efficiency and flexibility of the operator and your CNC machine. With just one click, the operator can adjust the speed of the robot, adjust the clamping force of the grippers, or allow the robot to grip eccentrically. These are just a few from a long list of standard functions.
