Yamazaki Mazak has launched a new range of robot automation systems designed to require a low-cost investment yet provide a flexible workpiece handling solution. The systems are capable of being utilised across a number of machines in the Mazak range.

The newly launched cell enables components of up to 2kg in weight (three further variants are planned with higher load capacity) to be loaded and unloaded through the universal infeed/outfeed concept.

The plug and play design enables easy integration into existing production environments claims the company.
