The FPA system from Toyoda (Arlington Heights, IL) enhances the production capabilities of horizontal machining centers. By automating redundant tasks such as machine loading and unloading, the system maximizes spindle utilization and minimizes operator intervention. The system is modular, expandable and upgradeable and delivers the latest in high-speed automation, paired with Toyoda’s Mach-III Cell Controller software for a metal cutting system that delivers maximum proficiency and profitability. In-line pallet buffer racks can be one, two or three levels high, expand to the left or right, and have pallets on one or both sides of the rail. Different pallet sizes are even allowed within one system so that various machining centers can be linked in a single multi-purpose cell.
