Laser System Handles Entire Production Process

December 27, 2019

MC Machinery Systems’ automation-solutions partner, Mitsubishi Electric, teamed with Astes4 to roll out at FABTECH a fully integrated, multifunctional laser system, capable of controlling the entire production process from loading, cutting, sorting and unloading through to the storage of finished parts.

The system utilizes four Cartesian grippers for loading, unloading and sorting of parts. Each gripper uses vacuum or magnetic tools in a variety of shapes and sizes to produce a more effective sorting speed. The process sorts the parts into kits, and a variety of options allows for different material thicknesses to be kitted on the same pallet. Downstream processes are taken into account to provide seamless integration into the production process.

The system’s software automatically optimizes and manages the production process through to storage, without the user having to intervene. Remote access and a camera system allow for continuous monitoring and intervention if needed.
