Losing hours of available manufacturing because you can't find employees? Hire us to provide System 3R Modular Automation Systems to fill your void and improve your productivity and profitability.

We are pleased to be associated with System 3R from GF Machining Solutions for many years and offer the TRANSFORMER, a modular automation system designed to integrate with a wide variety of technologies. With System 3R TRANSFORMER, manufacturers can automate a single machine and then easily expand to include up to 12 machines within the cell.

A System 3R TRANSFORMER cell is designed to accommodate a wide range of machining technologies and allows components from different manufacturers to be included within the same cell. This open-architecture approach allows end users to create an automation cell in which each individual component decision is optimized, as opposed to having choice constrained by compatibility.

We offer a range of System 3R tooling systems that allow palletization of workpieces and electrodes in a range of sizes. The System 3R TRANSFORMER system can handle all of these, as well as different tooling systems, allowing for its incorporation into production systems with existing tooling systems.

For maximum flexibility, System 3R TRANSFORMER offers additional in-process accessories that manufacturers can easily integrate into a cell. Such accessories include a multiple loading station, a draining station for emptying workpiece cavities after machining processes, a washing machine to clean workpieces and a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) for pre-setting and/or part inspection.

The System 3R TRANSFORMER system provides user-friendly cell management software whereby all production data is entered in a structured manner or imported through a data exchange interface for major enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. The software then controls every aspect of the cell, from automatically loading jobs to machines to recording and monitoring cycle times for each job. The core of the system is an efficient database that uses chip identification of the pallets to ensure that correct data is used for every part in the cell.
