Automation of an Overbeck

Overbeck is a brand that produces grinding machines and lathes. Overbeck is part of Danobat, but still carries its own brand name. Cellro is mainly involved in automating Overbeck grinding machines. In general, this involves product handling with very small products. Usually these are semi-finished products, products that have already been processed on a milling machine or lathe, which are put into the grinding machine for finishing. This operation must usually be very precise, very smooth or a combination of both. With Xcelerate, Cellro has an automation solution that meets these requirements.

Which Overbeck grinding machines does Cellro automate?

Overbeck has several grinding machines in its range. Cellro has the most experience in automating Overbeck internal and external cylindrical grinding machines. Automating a grinding machine generally works the same way as automating a lathe. The grinding machines are often loaded from the front, which requires an automatic door. Cellro automates grinding machines that are used for smaller series (i.e. not millions of items) for various products. High mix, low volume: that’s our strength.

Overbeck automates with high precision

The biggest challenge when automating an Overbeck is to get the semi-finished product into the grinding machine effectively. The smaller a product, the more difficult the product handling. High precision is essential. This is possible with Xcelerate. Any random inlay can be set on Xcelerate. A suitable robot gripper is also needed for this. The robot gripper’s fingers, and if necessary the robot gripper itself, can be adjusted for an optimal process. So, the loading robot can position the products in the machine in such a way that the required support is in fact achieved.

Easy automation with Xcelerate’s flexibility

Previously, grinding machines were often procured to grind a large series of one specific product. However, in recent times, more and more products are being processed with grinding machines. Flexibility of the automation solution is essential in this case. This is an Xcelerate core feature. Cellro specialises in smooth switches between products during processing. The secret to this flexibility is inlay configuration and customisation of the robot gripper fingers. It’s possible to make a robot gripper and/or gripper fingers fully adapted to our customer’s product, so the product handling is as effective and smooth as possible.

Xcelerate is designed to load workpieces into a single machine. From lathes to milling machines and from bench grinders to measuring benches, Xcelerate enables automatic finishing of production series. The automatic loading system can be linked to both new and existing CNC machines. This enables unmanned production for a wide range of machines, so you can focus on more complicated tasks in the workplace. Moreover, Xcelerate can continue operating automatically after closing time.

By moving Xcelerate, you can perform various machine operations using Cellro’s robot loading system. Within 15 minutes, Xcelerate can be moved between up to 4 CNC machines. After this, you can immediately proceed with your jobs. Xcelerate is centered in the floor by means of conical holes. In this video, you can see how this works.

Connecting an automation robot to your machine often means that the machine is no longer accessible during production. After all, a safe situation must always be guaranteed. Cellro’s robot loading systems change this, without endangering the safety of you and your employees. Cellro applies four different safety measures to maintain access to your CNC machine while it is connected to Xcelerate or Elevate.
