SmartFlow system – automated steel sheet processing

SmartFlow System is a solution for automated steel sheet processing. It consists of a automated loading and unloading of laser cutting machines and a automated steel sheets storage system. The system can process multiple laser cutting machines simultaneously enabling the full use of cutting speed and the high efficiency of manufacturing. Every time we designe the system we take into consideration the specific needs of the client and character of manufacturing process.

Elements of the SmartFlow System:

  • storage module – automated steel sheet storage system (MonoTower®, TwinTower®, TransferTower or MultiTower) – configuration adjusted to the client needs
  • transport module – MultiLoader loading-unloading module
  • station for the transport of cut pieces
  • software that manages material flow and the cutting process

Advantages

  • organized material flow in the cutting process
  • automated steel sheets processing
  • elimination of downtimes
  • full use of the cutting speed of the laser cutting machines
  • efficient use of production space
  • increased manufacturing efficiency
  • increased work safety
  • limited forklift use

Features of the SmartFlow System

  • designed for process sheets of dimensions 3m x 1.5m, 4m x 2m, 6m x 2m
  • possible integration with various brand of laser cutting machines
  • modular construction enables to adjust the system anytime to the clients specific individual needs
  • possible extention of the system in the future
  • possible processing of multiple laser cutting machines simultaneously
  • short material changing time
  • independend loading and unloading module
  • possible loading of steel sheets and unloading of cut pieces without the need of stoping the transport system
  • different available configurations of automated storage systems (MonoTower®,TwinTower®,TransferTower or MultiTower)
  • dedicated Smart WMS Production software for manufacturing management
  • flexibility in cut pieces material flow
