Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Launches Machine Tending Offering for LoadMate Plus Engineered Solution

Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc.’s LoadMate Plus™ product line is an engineered solution that is easy to implement while offering flexibility and mobility to address the ongoing challenge of labor shortages throughout the manufacturing sector. Machine tending is the process of loading and unloading parts or materials into a machine tool center, most commonly used with vertical machining center mills and turning centers (lathes) including CNC Swiss Machines.

Automation is becoming increasingly attractive to manufacturers due to labor shortages and pressures to maximize productivity. Through flexible connectivity via Ethernet and easy programming through the Direct Robot Control (DRC) feature of Mitsubishi Electric’s M8 Series, machine tending can benefit customers that may not have experienced robot programmers available. In addition to DRC, almost any CNC machine can be connected to a shop floor via discrete I/O for non-M8 CNC controls from Mitsubishi Electric and other companies. Further support is available through Mitsubishi Electric trained engineers to service both robot and CNC. Additionally, Mitsubishi Electric Automation offers a 5-year robot maintenance and warranty program.

“Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc.’s machine tending solutions portfolio provides a cost-effective answer to ongoing labor shortages and maximized productivity challenges many manufacturers are currently experiencing. Our experts work closely with your team to find and implement a turn-key solution that is seamlessly integrated, fully supported, and delivers ROI quickly” said Dave Simak, service product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc.

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Launches New FR-E800 Series Inverter for Facilities with Only a 120 Volt Source Available

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. announces the launch of FR-E810W, an expansion of the FR-E800 series inverter lineup providing 120V service solutions. FR-E810W offers the improved safety, energy savings, and operation reliability of FR-E800 inverters to an additional voltage class. Traditionally, customers using Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s 240V inverters, with 120V service, were required to purchase an external step-up transformer to increase the supply voltage from 120V to 240V. The FR-E810W provides 120V service solutions, saving on unnecessary added costs.
