The Transformer / WorkMaster –  a modular automation system

The concept consists of a free-standing changer unit which changes pallets between a magazine and the machine. As you can see, Transformer/WorkMaster is a flexible automation concept which suits most types of machines, and one in which the magazine configuration is matched to the individual requirements of each customer. The open architecture of the systems is a clear advantage of System 3R’s automation equipment.

The customer chooses the machine that is best suited to the particular requirements of the business, and a WorkMaster is added to it. System 3R is a universal link between machines of different makes and types. Always with the focus on flexibility and productivity.
