Makino (Mason, OH) offers the Track Pallet Magazine (TPM), the latest addition to their automation technology, enabling companies to reduce setup times, increase machine and spindle utilization, and raise the production capacity of a machine. This machine addition is perfectly suited for low volume and high mix production lines and is easily implemented into any shop. The TPM is the simplest solution for managing both cutting time and labor. This setup provides operators with the ability to load multiple pallets consecutively, allowing the TPM to guide the process the rest of the way. Pallets are automatically loaded and unloaded into the machine, providing increased spindle utilization that nearly eliminates downtime typically caused by manual loading and preparation periods. Requirements for installation are simply a Makino 1-series machine equipped with the Professional 5 Control software. TPM configurations are available in six, eight, ten, and twelve pallets. The Makino TPM allows shops to upgrade into automated technologies quickly without consuming large amounts of space. Installation of the TPM is configured based on ideal floor space requirements and is setup in either a “T” or “I” formation.
