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.
