In July of this year, Arnold was able to deliver a newly developed flex cell to a well-known customer from the valve construction industry in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The special features of this flex cell compared to the previous one are:
A large sliding door on the side for the best possible access to the internal system components. Large system parts such as a rotary / swivel axis can be easily dismantled through this opening. In addition, this door serves as a loading option for large, heavy parts using a hoist (e.g. indoor crane). At the front there is a two-part sliding door for loading small and medium-sized series parts.
The system is used for laser coating and "armoring" bearing seats and other highly stressed components.
The optimized travels of the NC-controlled axes (XYZ) round off the system concept and offer a large working area with a comparatively small system size.
