With our
Workpiece automation R-C2

Flexiblebatch size production with high part variety

The R-C2 workpiece automation is the solution between pallet automation and robot direct loading, as the GRESSEL vise automation combines both advantages. This means much less setup effort and much more flexibility.

…R-C2 is the next logical step in milling machine automation!

Vise automation
without setup/changeover time

Do your workpieces fit?

If your workpieces (max. 225 x 225 x 225 mm) can be clamped with the GRESSEL R-C2 vises, completely new possibilities open up to reduce the costs per workpiece.

Details about the R-C2 centering vises can be found in our catalogue.

Small batch sizeand unmannedproduction at night?

With an R-C2 automation, the operator can work extremely efficiently during the day without waiting time losses and build up work stock (run-in workpieces, blanks in the magazine, set-up tools) in the automation. This work stock is processed by the machine during the day and also unattended at night.

Great advantages with the R-C2 workpiece automation!

With the R-C2 system, we have succeeded in combining the advantages of workpiece direct loading and pallet automation.

  • in the magazine the workpiece
    gripped and clamped
  • the clamp with the workpiece is placed in the machine like
    a pallet into the zero point clamping system.

This achieves three effects:
✓ the machine produces significantly more workpieces
✓ the time required of the operator at the automation decreases
✓ the setup times are significantly minimized

Advantages that will
inspire you

GRESSEL R-C2 saves time and money!

Reduction in employee hours
R-C2 does everything by itself. Reduce employee hours at the machine and automation. Less time at the fixture means more time for other tasks and thus higher productivity of your employees.

Unmanned milling machine automation
The proven GRESSEL clamping technology combined with the highest level of CNC automation. That is our GRESSEL R-C2. The result for you: maximum productivity and economic efficiency that is a pleasure to use.

✓ Clamps different products
Without changeovers or conversions, the R-C2 grips different products and feeds them safely and quickly to the machining process. No changeover times, no additional work steps.

Workpiece automation R-C2
with media transfer

Automation without media feed-through in the machine table

Your CNC machine does not have a rotary union in the machine table? But you still want to automate your machine? No problem! With the GRESSEL R-C2 module incl. media coupling and the VERO-S console incl. media coupling you can automate without media feed-throughs in the table. You are thus spared an expensive retrofit of your CNC machine.

Simple retrofitting ofworkpiece automation
You can easily retrofit your existing machine with automation, since you do not need a media feed-through in the machine table.

✓ 6 pages of workpiece automation
With the R-C2 module incl. media coupling and the VERO-S console incl. media coupling in combination with the GRESSEL 6-sided station R-C2, you can produce complete workpieces unmanned.

✓ Highest productivity and maximum efficiency
Reliable GRESSEL clamping technology combined with the highest degree of automation. That is our R-C2! The result for you: Highest productivity and maximum economic efficiency, which is a pleasure.
