Kern Microtechnik GmbH has upgraded its Micro machining center to include an integrated workpiece changer that is housed with the toolchanger within the machine’s tool cabinet.

The machine’s toolchanger is capable of holding more than 180 tools, but this configuration offers the option to charge the tool cabinet with fewer tools and use the open space for as many as 30 workpieces, eliminating the need for an external workpiece changer. When charged with 30 workpieces, the Micro can still hold 90 tools. It also is possible to extend this capacity with an additional, external workpiece changer.

A single guiding system moves tools and workpieces into and out of the machine, saving space and cost for an additional workpiece transportation system. The tool cabinet’s software also is fully integrated so that no additional interfaces are required.

The system is designed for stability and reliability. The chuck is turned on a 90-degree angle when the workpiece is changed, enabling removal of all chips from the milling process and preventing inaccuracies caused by chips being left behind.
