Establishing a flexible production system with a higher operation rate.
Reducing fixture change time to maximize actual working time.
When changing product types in a machining center, it used to take about one to three hours for a fixture change and accuracy check. In addition, crane operation was required for this task to be completed. Therefore, the safety of the change work as well as the confirmation and verification of production quality and the reduction in working time were all major issues for product changeovers.
The Baby Kangaroo System resolves all of these issues in order to achieve easy, accurate and safe high-mix production. This significant reduction in the time it takes to change a fixture now dramatically increases the actual amount of working time.
