GF Machining Solutions' System 3R Celebrates 50 Years of Precision



GF Machining Solutions' System 3R, a supplier of modular workholding/tooling systems, automation and software, celebrates 50 years of Swedish precision and innovation.

"Founded in 1967, the company with headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, has pioneered a wide range of tooling, pallet and automation systems that generate considerable added value for manufacturers around the world," said a GF spokesperson. "The company is known for setting new quality standards with groundbreaking engineering, which is evident in its recent innovation of the System 3R TRANSFORMER modular automation system."

With System 3R TRANSFORMER, manufacturers can integrate a wide variety of technologies and components from different manufacturers within the same cell. This open architecture approach allows end users to create an automation cell where each individual component decision is optimized, as opposed to having choice constrained by compatibility. Manufacturers can initially automate a single machine, then if needed, expand to include up to 12 machines within a cell.

"System 3R is the leading tooling supplier in Asia and the U.S., with more than 100,000 customers in over 60 countries in the tool and die market alone," said the spokesperson. The company's solutions enable customers to increase production capacity and improve competitiveness through decreased set-up time and 24/7 operations.

"We were the first in this segment, before there were any competitors at all," said Jan Bergwall, Managing Director at System 3R's Vällingby site. He credits the company's success to the team of 160 employees in Sweden and an R&D site in Flawil, Switzerland, that is focused on meeting the ever-changing demands of manufacturers.

With Industry 4.0 as a key element of the company's strategy, System 3R continues to deliver advanced tooling and automation-based software that regulates the interaction between machines and robots to avoid errors and improves analysis of all process information, such as the time required for the subsequent process stages and scheduled maintenance.
