Plug in and Produce!
With t motion you are production-ready from the start and flexible too in batch productions. Without any time delays.
Further process steps, like loading and unloading systems or additional tube processing tasks can be integrated without any problems.
Interfaces with data caption systems for consumption and operation make the digitalization and evaluation of the data.
Fast and accurate
The high degree of automation means fast cycle times and therefore efficient manufacturing.
t motion: Reliable process at every stage
Experience high tech and flexibility combined in one modular principle
We offer a great variety of loading systems for all the machines, dependent on the material, tube diameter and tube length. Tubes that have already been formed and with added components can also be loaded without any issues. The appropriate orientation is therefore very important, when loading the tube into the production cell. External workpieces, such as nuts, flanges, supporting sleeves can be added to the system in a controlled manner and included in any subsequent processing steps. A great variety of loading volumes is possible.
Overview of possible loading systems:
- Step feeder
- Conveyor feeder
- Chain feeder
- Swivel arm feeder
- Loading tables
- Bowl feeder
- Alignment station

Handling and gripper systems:
The right system for every need
There is a great variety of handling systems available, dependent on the length of the workpiece. For short tubes there are systems gripping from below with insertion axis and for long tubes there are systems handling from above. Both options can be used in our combination systems. They guarantee ideal access for the operator, so they can complete the set-up and any maintenance operations in the best possible way.
Handling robots can be integrated
Transfer stations, turning modules for processing the tube in both directions within an installation and multiple grippers are available for optimized processes. Handling robots from many different manufacturers can also be integrated. The robots are used to move tubes/workpieces. A pre-assembly of different workpieces is also feasible in this case. The various components can be sorted using sensors and robots. A number of unloading systems are available. The workpieces can be unloaded and positioned either in specific way or in an unspecified way. In addition, the transfer to downstream process is also an option.
Overview of possible gripper systems:
- Overfloor handling
- Underfloor handling
- Combination handling
- Rotating module
- Outer gripper
- Inner and outer gripper
- Length measurement
- Handling robots
- Swivel arm feeder
- Unloading station

Additional tube processing systems:
Labelling systems can be integrated, whether it is laser, needle or inkjet, to mark and identify the tubes. Other options that can be integrated are welding seam detection, length control or measurement of processed tubes. The corresponding sensor and camera technology can be implemented for the specific product. The following step can be carried out without any problems, whether it is cutting, punching, deburring of holes or seal testing with external systems.
Smart data evaluation
All the systems can be equipped with different control and IPC panels. Interfaces to data caption systems for consumption and operation make the digitalization and evaluation of the data.
Overview of possible handling systems:
- Marking system
- Welding seam detection
- Camera control system
- Internal and external cleaning processes
- Cleaning and suction
- Hole punching
- Deburring – chamfering
