In this video, Makino's D200Z and EDAF3 machines are served with a single EROWA robotClick image to enlargeMakino's ready-to-use automation system needs little to no special engineering, delivering essential automation capabilities right out of the box.

Watch this standard pallet automation using a shared robot between the Makino D200Z 5-axis machining center and EDAF2 sinker EDM.

This cell uses EROWA’s ERC80 robot to manage various ITS pallet sizes between three EROWA receiver chucks. Die, Mold and Medical applications benefit from the elimination of change-over and setup time with a fast quoting cycle and lower costs compared to custom systems.
