VersaBuilt’s VBX-160 robotic parts loader uses the FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L robot. The parts loader has MultiGrip technology that uses machinable part gripping jaws that are shared by the robot gripper and the CNC vise. By combining the robot and CNC workholding, engineering costs are lowered, part processing is more efficient and failures are reduced, the company says. 

According to the company, the parts loader is a machining automation solution with integrated safety, in feed, out feed, interface and the MultiGrip jaw system. The VBX-160 powers mixed part CNC manufacturing in a range of industries including aerospace, automotive, firearms, power sports, recreational products, medical and government contracts.
