We have already had people talking at the ITM in 2013 and 2014 with our BASIC towers. Our new Laser FLEX was in no way inferior. The system is currently the fastest solution for the fully automated supply and removal of laser systems on the market. The visitors were very impressed by this. We are very pleased that the handling solution has created so much interest.
The recipe for success of Laser FLEX: After cutting the sheet metal, the fork unit of the new system lifts the processed metal sheet from the laser’s changing table, while the vacuum unit picks up a new board from the connected storage system. As soon as the remover places the sheet back down, the supplier attaches the new sheet to the laser - with a changing time of just 60 seconds.
Of course we presented our varied storage system portfolio at the ITM too. Right at the front with our BASIC tower for sheet metal and long goods and our sheet metal storage system. All systems are of course combinable with the Laser FLEX. This is what efficiency looks like in 2015.
