Load your Mazak CNC machines easily with the HALTER LoadAssistant. Increase your return from the same machine with smart and efficient CNC automation.
Mazak CNC machine automated with HALTER LoadAssistant Mazak was founded in 1919 in Japan as a manufacturer of straw mat weaving machines. In 1927 it began producing lathes and milling machines and has since established itself as a world player in the CNC field. The company’s philosophy is based on three main pillars: high quality, advanced CNC machines, and international value. This is reflected in the excellent machines Mazak has produced for decades, which are demonstrated by their 70 technology centers all over the world. The Dutch main office is in Houten, enabling service to always be guaranteed close to home. The HALTER LoadAssistant can be quickly and easily connected to a Mazak CNC machine thanks to the Mazak robot interface that can be supplied on each machine.

Westbrug Techniek in Wijchen has recently installed its fourth HALTER LoadAssistant, this time on a Mazak Nexus 250-II-QT lathe. The first HALTER LoadAssistant worked so well that the investment in multiple systems was an easy decision. These enable the Mazak CNC machines to be used continuously to achieve the highest possible return. According to Andrew van der Bruggen, there are also plenty of opportunities outside the regular working hours: “We see the HALTER as an automatic feeder. It is simple and in fact indispensable to ensuring a good return. The HALTER is not only running in the daytime, but often also at night or over the weekend. We simply ensure that we plan the work so that the slightly larger series can be loaded by the HALTER.”

The German company ASS Maschinenbau, which specialises in the manufacture of robot hands and grippers for the material handling of plastic components, has in its vertical machining centre the HALTER LoadAssistant connected to a Mazak Vari Axis J-500. To make the best use of the capacity of this machine, it was necessary to purchase a loading robot. The simplicity and flexibility of the HALTER LoadAssistant is what made the company decide to purchase this robot arm. Read more.
