I'd be curious to see what seal design Festo's using to deal with that.
    I see this trending... ur robots and expensive vise solutions. Whole bunch of people with more money than brains if you ask me.... The fanucmate robots are nearly half the price, more accurate and like 5x the speed. I just dont get the cobot stuff...you buy those things to make money, not move like a mental patient on Thorazine.

    Haha, I think the cobot thing is mainly about ease of programming and teaching as well as no guarding. The industrials are way faster and a bit more accurate, just depends how many parts you're running and how often it's getting changed over. I run an Epson robot on our mill and it's great but a little light on payload and needs additional safety stuff which is more of a hassle. It also takes longer to reprogram and teach. But, the jobs we run it on are higher volume and it works well for that.

    Have you setup a fanuc robot with their pendant? It's a piece of cake to teach. Id rather program and teach a fanucmate than the haas mills.

    Seen them at Automate but didn't have a chance to try the demo. Sounds like they're worth looking at. You have one on one of your mills?

    We have 4 haas dm2's each with a fanucmate 200id.

    Point of this thread was to semi automate vise clamping for the other machines. Like we are getting ready to buy a robodrill with a pallet changer and I'd like to outfit it with chick vises but pneumatic control them.

    Schunk and Kurt hydraulic/pneumatic Vises are definitely really pricey and will cost you at least 2 grand. I found a much cheaper option in a company called Airvise. Its a pneumatic vise that has worked really well for me and its actually pretty affordable

    4" Table Mount Vise

    it also doesn't weigh 30 lbs like the Kurt

    Digging up 6 month old threads, and spamming for your company is a quick one way ticket to getting kicked off the forum.

    Gee, you're in automation, your location is Idaho, AirVise is in Boise.... Yeah, you "FOUND" them. Or you work for them.

    Do you think we're idiots?

    Either buy advertising at the top of the forum, or contribute knowledge, but don't just raise necro threads to spam your products.

    Notably missing: repeatability specs.
