Through-Window Transfer SystemSeptember 1, 2008
Atlas Technologies, Inc., Fenton, MI, has introduced the Flex 6000 through-the-window transfer system. Its design uses four independent transfer modules mirrored on each corner of the press. Each module has its own drive train and servo motors, giving the transfer multiple axes of programmable adjustment and virtually unlimited flexibility.
Each independent motion shares multiple servo drives, which reduces drive-train size and eliminates mechanical linkages and drive shafts. The result is smooth part transfer at high speed without loss of part control, according to company officials.
