ASTES4 HIGH SPEED SKYWAY

The HIGH SPEED SKYWAY delivers all of the cost saving advantages of the previous sorting system, but with unmatched performance.

Capable of controlling the entire production process—from loading, cutting, sorting, and unloading through to the storage of the finished parts—the ASTES4 HIGH SPEED SKYWAY is the process-optimizing, throughput-boosting, performance-focused lynchpin of any laser automation system.

Here’s how it works:

Sheets are loaded by suction cups via the Skyway from the material storage location. After the parts have been laser cut, the Cartesian grippers independently pick out the assigned parts. The parts are then sorted on pallets. The pallets can then be moved to the corresponding next process. skeletons are then removed by forks and placed in skeleton removal area. This entire process is known as “lasorting.” Where some systems shoot for “hands-off,” the ASTES4 is your chance to gain several extra hands—exactly where you need them.

BUILD YOUR PERFECT PRODUCTION LINE

  • Our laser automation line is fully modular, giving you and your shop the perfect opportunity to create a machining and fabrication solution that’s custom-built to your exact specifications. And with configurations that require up to 30% less floorspace than other setups, designing the setup that’s right for you has never been easier or more cost-effective.

PRODUCTIVITY THAT’S GOOD TO GROW

  • From small fabrication shops to massive lights-out operations, our laser automation line comes ready with a wide range of options that make it a great fit in nearly any scenario. This isn’t something you’ll need to replace in 5 years.

EXPERT INSIGHTS INCLUDED

  • Not sure where to get started? Not to worry. Our laser automation experts will work with you to determine the right combination of machines, storage towers, product carts, and break-in stations. Together, we’ll help you create an adaptable, future-forward solution you can rely on to meet the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow.
