Meet the Tool Change Downtime Destroyer.
Matrix Design developed a tooling cart to supplement our automation systems. The WheelMate assists operators of our robotic gear-grinding cells during the tool-changing process. Because tool changes are often manual, reducing the downtime allows our automation system to maximize production capacity.
Utilizing four heavy-duty revolving casters, the WheelMate can be placed just about anywhere. Simply lock the brakes to turn the unit into a solid platform for the tool-change operation. The arm can be locked into nearly any position with a twist of the handles. The up-and-down operation is performed hydraulically, providing 14 inches of travel, accommodating the height of almost any machining center.
