Automating a GF machine

GF Machining Solutions is a global player in the field of machine manufacturing. Most of the GF range consists of CNC machines. Do you own a GF machine, or are you considering one? Cellro can help you automate your CNC machine. That way you’ll get even more spindle hours from your GF Machining Solutions.

Which GF CNC machines can Cellro automate?

The machines operate together seamlessly thanks to close collaboration between GF Machining Solutions and Cellro. Cellro is the leading specialist for product handling. It makes no difference whether your GF CNC machine is brand new or you’d like to automate a machine you’ve had for a while; linking to one of our automation solutions is always possible. Cellro automates the following GF machines:

  • 3-axis milling machines
  • 4-axis horizontal milling machines
  • 5-axis milling machines
  • Wire EDM machines
  • Die-sink EDM machines

GF machines are all controlled by a Heidenhain system. This is not a problem in linking these machines. Cellro loading robots will load GF machines from the side or the rear.

Which Cellro loading robot is suitable for a GF machine?

We have multiple loading robots that are excellently suited to linking with GF machines. This is especially true of Xcelerate. Our customers commend Xcelerate for its user-friendliness and flexibility. Thanks to Xcelerate, your GF machine can continue production unmanned. Besides, installing Xcelerate in your shop is a snap. Cellro is always willing to lend support. Want to find out more? Please contact us.

Cellro previously automated a GF machine using a Skid for our customer Bilfit. This offered them several major benefits. First, they could continue production at night and during weekends. This immediately made the GF machine much more profitable. Second, they could accept different orders to be finished at the same time.

After the positive experiences with Xcelerate and the growth Imminkhuizen Metaaltechniek had gone through, the need arose for a second automation. This time the company opted for Cellro’s Elevate, partly due to the high storage capacity of this loading robot. The work preparation was changed by using Elevate. Elevate can be fully loaded, also for next week’s production. Elevate is linked to a 5-axis milling machine from GF Machining Solutions.

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.
