Lead time for complicated parts gets reduced often as the cycle times and the amount of operations needed to complete those parts increases. To be efficient at producing complex parts in limited amounts of time Marten Machining has added automated pallet changers from Erowa. Out of the 10 five-axis machines in the facility 5 of the machining centers are integrated with pallet robots with pallet capacity ranging from 10 to 38 pallets in each manufacturing cell. The addition of modular work-holding adds the flexibility to setup programs for multiple parts or part operations that can run in succession during a single pallet program. Pallet automation allows parts to be manufactured efficiently in small and medium quantities unattended and allows machine and process setups to be changed over rapidly.
