UNITED GRINDING recently introduced a new type of automated loading system for use with its WALTER HELITRONIC MINI POWER, HELITRONIC DIAMOND EVOLUTION and HELITRONIC ESSENTIAL machines. The WALTER Top Loader is a space-saving, cost-effective automation solution that enhances overall productivity by reducing the tool loading time during grinding operations.

Equipped with:

  • a swiveling arm with a single gripper
  • uses two standard Walter robot pallets (one for blanks, the other for finished tools)
  • electrical teaching routing
  • pallets can hold up to 500 tools
  • tool changeover takes only 27 sec
