RoboTrex Automation System

Any questions?

The RoboTrex automatic handling system operates the machining center from an automation trolley, which serves as a storage medium for the vises. Depending on the part size, the trolley can store up to 42 vises. RoboTrex is optionally available with up to four trolleys, which means that the storage capacity can be increased to up to 168 vises. The heart of the system is the patented vertical positioning of the vises: it ensures maximum space utilization and guarantees best accessibility. The external pre-loading of the automation trolleys allows RoboTrex Automation to be re-equipped within seconds. This ensures that no unnecessary downtimes of the machining center are caused.
