  • EROWA MTS

  • The versatile datum-point tooling system
    The EROWA MTS (Modular Tooling System) is a flexible tooling system. The maximum workpiece size is exclusively determined by the machine capacity.

    Whether you require single palletization with an MTS chuck or multiple palletization with several MTS chucks or base plates – all combinations are possible.

      • Modular and universal clamping

      • MTS base plates are the flexible and precise interface for single or multiple palletization.

        MTS base plates are available in various versions – with 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 MTS chucks, depending on the model. We would also like to advise you on customized versions.

      • Minimizing setting-up times

      • Workpieces and fixtures are palletized so that they can placed on the machine when required without any further setting up. On the machine, the MTS palletizing system holds them in position with precision and stability.

        Further jobs are prepared outside the machine.

      • Automating

      • The MTS system is ideally suitable for automated pallet change.

        When workpieces are changed, the contact surfaces of the chucks and chucking spigots are cleaned automatically. The MTS pallets are positioned neatly and with precision.

      • Low construction height

      • The low construction height of the EROWA MTS tooling system leaves a great deal of space for workpieces.

        MTS chucks are fitted to the machine table or directly integrated in it.

                                • One of the important features for automated manufacturing of single parts and small batches is that the system can switch automatically between different pallet sizes.

                                  The Robot Dynamic is suitable for loading large and small workpieces. Each magazine position and each pallet is continuously monitored. The EWIS™ Rapid identification system ensures a clear view.

                                • Extendable at any time

                                • The EROWA Robot Dynamic is always adaptable and upgradeable to the current requirements. The basic investment is protected.

                                  The robust linear rail is extended in segments to the appropriate length (up to 20 meters). Element by element in 2 meters' steps.

                                • High transfer weight

                                • The Robot Dynamic changes pallets with a total weight up to 250 kg reliably on to the machine. Also small and light workpieces.

                                  The right gripper for each tooling system size is stored in the GripperDock and can automatically replaced when needed.

                                • Long range

                                • Depending on the type of X-axis, there are three configurations to choose from, the arm of the Robot Dynamic has a range of up to 2350 mm.
                                • Optimal loading through the front door

                                • The Robot Dynamic is located laterally offset from the machine. The combined swivel axis allows to load the machine through the front door.

                                  The operator area in front of the machine thus remains accessible for manual operation.

                                • 2D scanner for access safety

                                • An 2D scanner continuously monitors the operator area.

                                  If a person is located in the area, pallet changes are not allowed. If the area is free, the Robot Dynamic loads the machine as planned.

                              • EROWA Robot Dynamic 500

                              • To load large workpieces precisely onto the machine
