Yet more opportunities through extension options

...Because no working environment is like the other

 

Our systems are modular in design. Accordingly, they can usually be combined with our equipment options with little design effort for your individual plant layout.

The use of shuttle tables for part intake in mixing and dosing systems in partly automated operation allows a strict division between the robot danger area and the insertion area corresponding to the proven safety concept.
 

The implementation of automatic refill stations for continuous material supply in fully automated production processes does not just avoid production down time. They also increase operating comfort and working and system safety.

SONDERHOFF WT1-LEVEL

Shuttle table in one level

The shuttle table unit permits the single-level processing of parts on two support platforms, which move back and forth in a pendulum mode. This offers both continuous operation and short cycle times. The shuttle table unit consists of a robust base frame made of aluminum (fitted with adjustable leveling feet and preparation for floor anchoring) and two movable aluminum worktops with drilling pattern for fixing the workpieces or workpiece support.

The shuttle table allows a strict separation of the robot danger zone from the insertion area corresponding to the safety concept. The choice of which shuttle table is the right one for you depends on your components.

Automatic refill stations

Accurately refilling for continuous material supply

Fully automatic refill stations, when used as part of a completely automated production process, ensure material-specific preparation, homogeneous consistency and a continuous supply of material – all with greater operating convenience and increased working and machine safety. This means that production downtimes are now a thing of the past.

Because no one really likes getting their hands dirty!

An automatic refill station fills the material pressure tanks of the mixing and dosing system with the material components directly from barrels or other containers – without causing exposure to any contaminant or other hazardous substance. The device is controlled from the dosing and mixing system, with monitoring provided by level-detection sensors located inside the material pressure tanks. Regulated agitator mechanisms with programmable agitator speeds and timer-switch functions are used for producing consistently homogenous reactive materials.

All refill stations can be fitted with different agitator elements to suit the handled material. Existing mixing and dosing systems can be retrofitted with a refill station. For more operating convenience, working and machine safety, we also offer refill stations that are equipped with an automatic lifting device
