The innovative ACURA concept with side loading allows an ACURA 50 EL and an ACURA 65 EL to be automated with a pallet storage system or robotic cell. Are your order books completely full? No problem – both machines run automatically around the clock. Do you need to make new parts? No problem – one machine runs automatically, leaving you free to make your parts on the other. Does your customer need an individual part? No problem – one machine continues running automatically while you manufacture the individual part on the other. As there’s always at least one machine running automatically, you can harness the full benefits of automation. The tiered investment option is also a good solution. When starting out, for instance, you might purchase a machining centre plus automation. Once orders start increasing, you can expand your system by acquiring a second machining centre. You space requirements and investment volume are significantly smaller than those of a conventional linear production system.
