"After 16 years and approximately 40 million ball studs, our four Toellner loader/unloaders are still operating remarkably well on our four CNC lathes. Sixteen years of three shifts, five and six days a week; they have exceeded our expectations."

Toellner Systems’ mission is to assist American manufacturers in becoming the most competitive in the world. We’ll accomplish this by designing and manufacturing automation systems that epitomize: strength, precision, speed and value. Through sustained profitable growth, we will provide opportunities to our employees, returns to our shareholders and support to the communities in which we work.
"We had the Toellner system for about two months now. We increased our output by 3 times. We used to produce 450 conductor tubes a day and one person dedicated to load and unload each machine. Now we have one person running 3 machines and putting out 1500 conductor tubes plus other parts. The setup and maintenance on the machine could not be any easier. At first, my operator had doubts about the unit, but now he can't live without it."

Place your cursor on the components (pinpointed areas) of the loader to learn what each feature means for you.
Servo-technology - This technology provides the fastest and smoothest loading/unloading available while providing flexibility for a variety of loading/unloading applications.
Slide - We match our slide's payload capacity to the weight of your part to ensure years of worry-free operation. Whether you're loading a one oz. part or a 100 lb. part, we have you covered.
Upper assembly - Our end-of-arm tooling is designed to take into account your part(s) shape, size, sensitivity, and orientation requirements when loading and unloading.
Access door - Our signature approach of entering through the lathe door (instead of opening and closing it) saves valuable seconds in the loading/unloading process.
Pivoting pedestal base - Our floor-mounted pedestal can be unlatched and pivoted clear of the machine door allowing easy access to the lathe work envelope.
Soft-start air regulator - This feature allows the unit to be brought up to pressure smoothly avoiding all sudden movements of the air cylinders, insuring operator safety.
PLC cabinet - Inside the cabinet is an Allen Bradley programmable controller. Conveniently located on the control cabinet is an E-Stop button, reset/hold, and power on/off switch.
Raw parts queue design - Your Toellner loading system may be designed with an adjustable inbound parts queue to accommodate an entire family of parts of various sizes and configurations.
Raw parts queue capacity - We design your inbound parts queue based on the length of time you would like your system to run unattended and the part orientation required, if necessary. Run "lights out" if you like.

“We replaced much more costly robots with Toellner Systems loaders which resulted in a vast improvement in productivity due to loading speed. We immediately saw an increase in throughput of 9,000 parts per month per loader. In a cell that used to have eight operators on eight machines, we installed Toellner loaders and reduced the number of operators needed from eight down to four. We’re very pleased with Toellner’s loaders and are considering installing more for other projects next year.”
