Haas Automation has developed a single-point interface that standardizes communication between the Haas control and a parts-loading robot. Available on select Haas machines, the pre-engineered Robot Ready option includes the necessary hardware, DeviceNet™ I/O module, and software to connect a Haas mill or lathe to a machine-tending robot. This option simplifies robot set-up, making it easier for more shops to use robotic cells for their manufacturing.
Haas machine tools have been used in robot-tended installations for years. The mid-size Haas mills and turning centers have ideal footprints and work envelopes for use in high-production robotic cells. In the past, however, each discrete cell required its own unique hardware set-up for the machine and robot to communicate effectively.
The Robot Ready option allows a Haas CNC machine to integrate easily into a robotic cell. It is a flexible solution that allows machines to be added, removed, or exchanged as production changes or the machine shop grows.
The following is a partial list of sources of these items. Ideally, either the robot manufacturer or integrator will suggest where to find the fixturing, grippers, robot, fence, etc.
The Haas Robot Ready interface will work with any robot that supports DeviceNet. Haas Automation has worked closely with the following companies in creating an interface that simplifies integration of machine tool tending installations.
