Hermle-Leibinger Systemtechnik GmbH 
20 years of ultimate automation, Handling system HS flex

When Hermle-Leibinger Systemtechnik GmbH (HLS) - today a 100% subsidiary of Hermle - was founded in 1998, machining centre automation technology was still in the experimental stage. HLS initially focussed on handling and feed systems and basic machining centre automation. However, the importance of robot technology and combining several machining centres to create a manufacturing system soon became clear. And it was not long before additional technologies such as cleaning, measuring and monitoring were integrated into the turn-keys. But, in particular, it was robot technology based on an ingenious platform strategy that allowed HLS to constantly move into new areas of activity and industries.
Well over 300 systems have since been installed at Hermle machines, including linear systems with up to five, robot-controlled machining centres. Production machines from other manufacturers have also been incorporated into these complex systems.

Handling system HS flex -
further stages of expansion in pallet handling

The completion of a further expansion stage to create a multi-pallet system makes HS flex even more attractive. When combined with the Hermle Automation Control System (HACS), HS flex offers enhanced productivity and flexibility.

After a hugely successful launch in April 2017 (see Press Release_HSflex_2017), the HS flex handling system, which can be adapted to the machine models C 12, C 22, C 32, C 42 of the High-Performance-Line and to the C 250 and C 400 of the Performance-Line, has become a real success story and its popularity continues to rise.

HS flex handling system as a multi-pallet system

The HS flex handling system will be presented at
this year’s Open House with a range of new features, especially for pallet handling. By changing the gripper, it is now possible to integrate various pallet systems such as EROWA MTS and ITS 148 in one system. HS flex enables optimum handling of pallets up to a transport weight of 450 kg and even with pallet dimensions of up to 500 x 400 mm. Thanks to the new software functionality in HACS, it is now also possible to stack pallets in individual cases and thus store and offer an even wider spectrum of workpieces within the system.
The design of the two storage modules has been specifically adapted to the needs of customers and is available in an array of variants and combinations.
