Automation System Modularity Increases Adaptability Fastems offers FMS One, a fully configurable machine-tool pallet automation system, and RoboFMS One, which combines the benefits of an industrial robot and a flexible manufacturing system. Fastems says that both systems are built from standard modules that offer fast delivery and easy operation. MLS Multi Level Systems and RoboFMS are systems that can be customized for special needs. The FMS systems feature increased modularity for fast deployment and adaptability. Standard modules reduce equipment delivery and implementa- tion lead times and enable custom fitting of automation solutions to specific end-user needs. Fastems says that the FMS systems integrate easily with a large number of four-axis and five-axis machine tools. The FMS systems adapt to a wide range of load handlers as well. For example, the FMS systems work with cranes and robots that can handle work- pieces from 0.1 kg to 2,500 kg in any shape or size. The systems offer more spacious pallet storage to maximize available space, and the systems have lower system reaches that free operators from working in difficult positions.
