    Automation Efficiency is measured in $!
  • Modular automation system

    Clever Start – Rise Smart!

    In the field of automation solutions, the requirements are very different. Particularly in the construction machinery and agricultural machinery industries, employee-friendly parts handling is needed for thick sheet production. In addition to the food and beverage industry, the medical industry also insists on as few scratches and cardboard intermediates as possible. Thin sheet processing companies, such as automotive suppliers, demand the highest speed to achieve the output of laser cutting systems.

    Our daily challenge is to meet and fulfill all these requirements.

    Since the dawn of laser cutting and automation, sorting and stocking parts has always been a manual operation…. until now.

  • Low initial investment, expand as your earn more.

    With intelligent and integrated automation solutions, the ASTES4MAS concept ensures that they always have the right level of automation for their production requirements. it literally grows with their increasing future requirements. From a fast and efficient loading and unloading system to a high-speed sorting module that enables a fully automated machining process of cut parts, combined with a wide range of automatic storage systems. The modular design allows for customization to fit your budget and space constraints.

  • ASTES4SkyWay

    The very fast SkyWay loading and unloading system enables them to separate the processes between laser cutting and parts picking, thus significantly increasing the utilization of the laser system. The SkyWay loads the laser system’s pallet changer with raw material and unloads the cut sheets – all within 58 seconds!

  • ASTES4SortPro

    In combination with the SortPro sorting module, the automation system can even handle the individual parts picking process automatically. SortPro consists of four parts picking heads. These are each equipped with a patented revolving head that can access seven individual vacuum and magnetic picking tools. Maximum automation with maximum flexibility.

  • ASTES4StoreGo

    The SkyWay can be connected to various types of storage systems. Whether single tower, double tower or multi-tower system – we adapt to your demands. To optimize the space requirement, the SkyWay can be integrated directly into an automatic storage system by allowing both manipulator units to move into the storage tower.

  • 58 Seconds Cycle Time.

    Wow, this gets your Beam-on Time up!
  • 2 manipulator units

    The SkyWay consists of two separate manipulator units – one for loading and one for unloading. This way different operations can take place simultaneously which reduces the cycle time to the absolute minimum of 58 seconds (3015).

  • 2 manipulator units

    The slats brushing device automatically brushes away debris left on the pallet of the laser system to ensure a stable automation process.

  • Flexible configuration

    To adapt the SkyWay to your needs you can choose for its working area to be in front or behind the pallet changer. The configurations of the system start with the “smart configuration” which simply adds a table for raw material.

  • Flexible configuration

    The “advanced configuration” will add 2 carts moving in a 90° angle to the SkyWay operation. Finally, the SkyWay can be integrated in various types of automated storage systems. Choose what fits you best!

  • Flexible as an Army Knife,

    but a lot more Convenient…

    4 patented sorting heads with revolutionary automatic revolving tool changer always have the right tool on-board. There is no external and time consuming tool-change necessary anymore. Each head carries seven vacuum and magnetic tools of different dimensions and shapes. These tools are automatically changed depending on the part geometry and weight.

  • Get More out of Storage and Pallets!

    Higher Packing Density through Precise Stacking.

    Mass production can be done by anyone… flexibility is what scores today! The ASTES4SortPro is significantly ahead of all currently available laser automation systems on the market – in terms of productivity and efficiency!

  • Economical Stacking

    with additional Health & Safety Benefits!

    How economic may an automation system be that cannot sort all part geometries or cannot stack them in the same orientation? To place all the cut parts always in the required orientation, every head can rotate 360°. Also, long parts often have to be rotated 90° or even 180° in order to place them correctly or as desired. The ASTES4 sorting systems master this task using two sorting heads (one of each portal).

  • One, two or 20? How many Storage Towers do you need?

    Exactly tailored to your requirements

    The ASTES4StoreGo automated storage systems optimize your logistic process – whether you just need a single tower system for the continuous supply of raw material to your laser system or you are looking for a huge multitower system to organize all your shop floor logistics. Our single, double or multi-tower storage systems can store pallets with raw material or cut and perfectly stacked parts but also cassettes with cut sheets or skeleton. Different layout options make sure that the system adapts to your needs and space requirements. We are at your disposal to find the most suitable solution for you.

  • Programming in 4 Clicks ... couldn’t be simpler.

    SortCAM automatically optimises and manages the production process through to storage, without the user having to intervene. The outcome is unsurpassed userfriendliness. The user only has to select the pallets being used and everything proceeds automatically as a single production order – management of various materials, part quantities, sorting and storage – based on purchase orders and deliveries.
