To further increase productivity, we offer various modular, flexibly deployable automation solutions for efficient production of series and individual parts. Whether you are planning a new automated system or want to expand your existing systems — we have the necessary know-how and, if you so desire, will provide you with a turnkey solution for your project. FEHLMANN offers various solutions for automated production of single parts and small batches. Whether in connection with a single machine, with automation for two machines or with a linear automation system:
FEHLMANN machines can be fitted with a variety of automation concepts at any time — easily and without restricting operation.
The part feeding system with pallet handling is perfectly suited for medium-sized batches and single parts. Various clamping devices may be mounted on the pallets without having to program a robot.
Robotic parts handling with compact and modular 6-axis robot system for all-around processing of round as well as angular blanks.
Thanks to the open system architecture, FEHLMANN machining centers can be integrated into existing networks quickly and efficiently. Integration into production management systems such as Erowa, Soflex or Promot, or tool identification via barcode — the system will be tailored
to your needs. Depending on customer needs, number of pallets and variety of parts, the systems may be controlled and monitored via a pallet management file, integrated into the controls or with the flexible FEHLMANN Milling Center Manager MCM™.
The complete system from a single source
- The systems are commissioned and tested with the customer-specific configuration here in our works.
- We develop and produce the machine and MCM™. For parts handling, we use standard robots.
- The practicality and ease of operation of our solutions is due in part to the numerous suggestions that we have received from MCM™ customers and were then able to integrate into the standard equipment.
Fehlmann Milling Center Manager
The Milling Center Management system - an in-house development by Fehlmann - controls both machine and robot. Machining order, zero points, etc. are entered in a simple and clear job table (Windows surface). Via mouse click, the operator can change the machining order or single parameters during system operation.
Remaining flexible even in automatic mode: a part can be fitted in easily. Thanks to the high operator comfort of machine and MCM, the Fehlmann solution is not only suited for series production, but is already efficient when producing only a few parts.
Tool breakage monitoring, NC program management, logging of system events and a phone alarm (optional) sent to a preselected mobile phone number via SMS are just a couple of functions allowing for unattended night or weekend shifts.
