A Japanese brand, Toyoda was established as an independent subsidiary of the car manufacturer Toyota. Today, however, Toyoda is part of JTEKT. Toyoda machines are used in the car industry in particular, but can also be found in the production of agricultural machinery and other areas. Cellro has in-depth experience in linking our Toolchanger to Toyoda CNC machines. Toolchanger is an external storage carousel in which tools for CNC machines can be automatically placed and exchanged.
Toyoda machines are generally used for round-the-clock production. Many different tools – from drills to milling machines – are often required to be able to machine a complete shape from a piece of metal. Furthermore, several types of products are often machined. Once this process is automated, you have to make sure that you have sufficient room for all of the different tools you need for each product. The result is that the number of tools required is significantly greater than the amount able to be stored in the standard tool holder in Toyoda machines. In such a case, Toolchanger from Cellro offers a solution by providing space for hundreds of different types of tools.

A CNC machine may be able to operate without an automation solution, but not without a tool changer. Although the Toolchanger is a standalone unit, it nevertheless forms an essential part of a CNC machine. By definition, Toolchanger is used for a large number of tools – more than the amount stored in a CNC machine as standard. The capacity of the system therefore has to be expanded. For the connection between a Toyoda machine and a Toolchanger to be successful, the sizes of each tool must be entered into the system. Connecting a Toolchanger is at its simplest when using a new Toyoda machine, as the machine settings can be fully adjusted to the Toolchanger during construction.
The greatest added value of the Toolchanger as opposed to standard tool storage units in CNC machines is the speed with which the tools can be exchanged in the machine. This delivers significant time savings. In addition, the Toolchanger has a separate loading mechanism to prevent downtime during the production process when changing tools. This loading mechanism also has an altimeter to ensure tools are placed in the right location. After all, tool sizes can vary greatly.
Toolchanger is mainly linked to Toyoda horizontal milling machines. Toolchanger makes sure that tool changes are carried out on the Toyoda machine and is therefore not a standalone automation system. Complete Cellro automation systems are usually linked to Toyoda vertical milling machines, and both Xcelerate and Elevate can be used in this case. These complete loading robots offer a host of functionalities – it’s about much more than simply changing tools.

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.
