Gripper System

PIRANHA® gripper system

The PIRANHA with gripper system has been developed for semi-automatic operation. PCD tools are fed into the machine on “roll-on” pallets. A robot gripper system (gantry loader) takes the workpieces off the pallet one by one and moves them in front of the laser galvo head. Implementing the gripper system in the software also allows for automatic laser marking and/or engraving on the circumference of workpieces. The system is also used for manual 3D micro engraving of step chip breakers in PCD tools.

Gantry Loader and Semi-Automatic Operation

Interior view of the PIRANHA gripperGantry loaders are multi-axis systems, which carry out the workpiece changeover at processing machines. If workpieces (for example on pallets) can be loaded and unloaded independently of the process, this mode is called fully automated mode.

If, however, the laser machining process is interrupted for loading and unloading, such an operation is referred to as semi-automatic mode. Usually, for long process times, one abstains from fully automated mode for economic reasons.

Intuitive User Interface
