ASTES4

With a fully integrated system for cutting, sorting, and storing of sheet metal, the ASTES4 is your all-in-one solution for laser automation.

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

Here’s how it works.

All loading, unloading, and sorting processes are controlled by four cartesian grippers. 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 be stored in the warehouse, awaiting pickup and shipment. Scraps are then removed and placed in scrap removal forks or conveyors. 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.

ASTES4 Base

Standard cell available in configurations and weight capacities to align with your shop’s needs.

ASTES4 Plus

This Configuration adds a material tower to maximize material flow through the system. The base tower comes with 8 shelves and can be expanded to 18 shelves.

ASTES4 Enhanced

The Astes4 coupled with the industry-leading technology of the Rapid Automation cell provides the ultimate solution for throughput and efficiency. Finished parts are sorted independently of the laser system, allowing the system to continually run even during fast cycle times. No other system available on the market can do that!
