Distech Systems' DS1200-MTL machine tool tray loader provides an accurate, reliable alternative to operator tending of turning centers, the company says. The compact system, which is compatible with most turning centers, uses robotic technology to load and unload parts. The ability to perform secondary operations like part washing, pack out and stacking allows the system to operate as a versatile work cell.

The tray loader accepts stacks of trays from carts, eliminating operator lifting. From a position next to the turning center, the robotic arm feeds parts directly into the spindle, fixture or the turning center's internal loader. The robot can also load and unload auxiliary equipment during your machining process. All Distech units are complete, turnkey systems and are capable of performing secondary operations. This eliminates the need for additional on-site integration.
