    Platinum
    Frontloader

    The Platinum Frontloader is an innovative, compact robot cell with an extensive selection of functionalities. The Frontloader was specifically designed to guarantee the optimal accessibility of CNC machines which can only be loaded through the front door.

    Standard product loading – Choose between pallet or collet loading

    The all-rounder for loading CNC lathe and milling machines through their front door

    By adding the collet module or pallet module, multiple clamping fixtures can be placed in the CNC machine by the robot. This makes it possible to have multiple product formats processed by the CNC machine unmanned. The benefits of the automation solution are best demonstrated when combining product loading with collet or pallet loading. You can then automate many small different product series and even single pieces. The Platinum Frontloader therefore fits perfectly in an environment where small to large series of different sizes are produced.

    Pallet or Collet module

    Pallet of Collet module

    Pallet or collet module

    The standard Platinum Frontloader is equipped with a product loading module and an extremely flexible modular tray system. For business operators who want to obtain even more output from their CNC machines, BMO Automation also offers the option of loading pallets with fasteners in your CNC machine or the option of loading collets on your CNC lathe. Both options provide greater flexibility and allows several different product formats to be processed in combination on unattended machinery. Such versatility enables 24/7 production of product series of various sizes.

    Pallet loading module

    The pallet loading module allows products to be fixed manually on pallets and then loaded into the CNC machine by the robot. This option gives you even greater flexibility by automating the handling of highly complex fastening equipment. The robot is equipped with a gripper exchange system. that allows the robot to disconnect its gripper and attach to its pallets

    • Capacity for 8 pallets 395x395mm or 16 pallets 395x195mm
    • Loading pallets with or without pneumatic clamping block
    • Loading pallets with manual fixtures
    • The robot is equipped with the BMO gripper exchange system
    • Including software BMO Intelligent Pallet Loading Solution (BIPL)
    • Multiple product series in one production run (24/7)
    • Optional pallet exchange station on top drawer

    Collet module

    If you opt for the collet module, the robot will be equipped with a gripper exchange system so that it can attach a special collet gripper. With this special gripper, the robot can take collets from the rack above the product trays and place them in the collet chuck in the main spindle or sub-spindle.

    • Capacity for 18 collet positions
    • Loading collets of various diameters
    • The robot is equipped with the BMO gripper exchange system and a BMO collet gripper
    • Including software BMO Intelligent Collet Loading Solution (BICL)
    • Multiple product series in one production run (24/7)
    • Collet exchange station on top drawer

    Product handling module

    Product handling module

    Product loading module

    The Platinum Frontloader comes standard with a product loading module and a very flexible modular drawer system.

    The operator can fill this drawer system with the material to be processed. The robot autonomously slides these drawers in order to pick up raw materials and load them into the CNC machine. After processing, the robot places the processed products back in the drawer and slides them to the middle position. The operator can then pull out this drawer to the unload position and empty the finished products with which it is filled. These drawers may therefore be loaded and unloaded during operation without interrupting the production process.

    The product drawers can be provided with different grids, optimizing the available space for your products. This allows you to store as many products as possible in the Platinum Frontloader for the highest possible number of spindle hours. The variable drawer system also makes it possible to automate products with different heights.

    With product loading from BMO Automation you are flexible, modular and able to gain a guaranteed higher output.

    • Standard four robust product drawers (maximum seven)
    • Product drawer dimensions: 1600mm x 520mm
    • Product drawer dimensions Platinum 24 Frontloader: 1100mm x 420mm
    • Maximum load per draw of 300 kg
    • Many different gripper options
    • Variable product heights due to a widely variable drawer system
    • Refilling of products during operation
    • Optional multifunctional reversable drawer
    • Optional axle loading module including special axle grid

    BMO Automation is a total solution provider. In addition to robot automation, we also ensure that your CNC machine is prepared and equipped with a zero point clamping system which is developed by BMO. This “chuck plate” is equipped with pallet installation control and is tailor-made for the machine table of your CNC machine. The communication between the robot and the CNC machine is provided through a customized interface developed by BMO. In addition, we provide various other options to make the work as easy as possible for the operator.

    • Pallets in many different sizes (with or without pneumatic feed through)
    • Use many different types of machine clamps
    • Integration kit for manual control of the zero point clamping system
    • Integration kit for manual control of the pneumatic clamping block

    BMO Intelligent Control System

    BMO Intelligent Control System

    BMO Intelligent Control System

    Simple and User-friendly

    The Platinum Frontloader is operated by means of the BMO Intelligent Control System. This software makes it unnecessary to use the robot’s teach pendant. The operator operates the Platinum Frontloader by means of a specially developed Multi-touch screen (IP67) mounted on the front of the robot cell and connected to a high-end control system. No extensive robot knowledge is required to operate the Platinum Frontloader.

    Production of a new job is commenced by entering different parameters, product dimensions, product quantities, gripper selection and machine clamp properties. The very intuitive operating procedure is so simple that a new job can be created within one minute. The software not only offers great advantage when initiating the process but also when monitoring it. Remaining times, cycle times and processed products are calculated and, if you opt for the optional mail module, can also be retrieved remotely.

    The manual operation of the machine clamp, robot gripper and access door of the cell can also be controlled via the touch screen. In addition, the speed of the robot can be controlled by the software and various software options can be implemented.

    • Operation via a Multi-touch screen
    • Robot jobs can be programmed within 1 minute
    • Equipped with remote support module
    • Mail module for status updates
    • BMO Jobmanager to handle multiple jobs in a row
    • Easy-to-use menu layout with clear symbols

     

    Servo gripper

    Servo gripper

    BMO servo gripper

    To ensure optimal flexibility, BMO Automation offers a choice of many different gripper options. There is a gripper solution for every product.

    BMO has developed the servo jaws to enable the greatest possible flexibility. Selecting this option means that the parallel or three-point gripper is fitted with automatically adjustable gripper jaws. By means of a simple operation, the operator is able to enter the product’s size into the BMO Intelligent Control, after which the servo gripper automatically adjusts to the entered size. As a result, multiple product sizes can be loading in a fully automated manner as part of a single continuous process. Gripper fingers no longer have to be switched manually.

    With a parallel gripper, products can be grasped in the range of 0 to 164 mm or 109 to 274 mm without the intervention of the operator.

    A three-point gripper can grab round products in a range of 3 to 196 mm or 144 to 310 mm without operator intervention.
