Automation extends unmanned production runs

The L III loading unit can only be used in conjunction with the PR III UL unloading and sorting unit.

AMADA's L III loading unit provides the option to immediately automate the machine loading process, or to do as at a later point. The compact configuration requires a minimal footprint.

An extended uninterrupted production run is ensured. This is possible with fast and straight-forward material loading, provided for by convenient access, as well as the high load capacity of the two pallet changers of 3,000 kg each.

Handling a variety of materials – ranging from normal steel, aluminum and stainless, to plastics and materials with sensitive surfaces – presents no problem with the L III. For this purpose, the loading unit is equipped with suction grippers, which ensure reliable and careful loading of the material. In addition, the lifting unit provides for fast and smooth positioning of the material with its integrated ball screw.

The level of automation can be increased at any time by integrating an automated storage and retrieval system. The modular concept of all AMADA automation components greatly simplifies automation.


  • Cost savings through minimal material change time
  • Increased productivity
  • Longer unmanned machine production runs
  • Operation of several machines simultaneously
  • Higher labor cost efficiency
  • Increased profitability due to smaller lot sizes

Due to its compact design, the footprint of the loading unit is minimal .
Because of the good accessibility, raw material can be loaded with ease. Each of the two pallet changers on the L III has a load capacity of 3,000 kg, providing for a long, uninterrupted production run.
