Mazak Optonic's Quick Cell 3015 compact, high speed automation solutionClick image to enlarge

Mazak Optonics has introduced their newest addition to their compact range of automation solutions, the Quick Cell 3015. 

Mazak’s Quick Cell 3015 is a new compact laser automation solution which performs unmanned operation while having a small footprint for facilities with limited floor space. By having the load and unload pallets stacked, it allows for the factory floor space to be used more efficiently. 

The load and unload units each have a separate drive system instead of being combined. As a result, the high speed operation time is under 60 seconds for materials 12mm and thinner, which is much faster than conventional systems. The system has 24.5 mm (1.000 in.) capacity. 

It offers the flexibility to meet metal fabrication production requirements. The stocker can be expanded to 6, 10, or 14 levels after installing the standard base system. The number of pallets used for material and the number of pallets used for finished parts can be freely selected for the 6, 10, and 14 level stockers.
