Robotic materials handling for industrial saws12 September 2018 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
Kasto claims it can implement combined storage and sawing systems for its customers in which all processes are automated, from storage of the raw material to retrieval of the cut parts. The company says control software can be linked to existing ERP systems offering improved transparency and efficiency. Also the sawing can be integrated with other processes like turning or milling within a digitised, Industry 4.0 production environment.
The company notes that end-of-arm tool selection is an important factor and that users have a choice of mechanical, magnetic or vacuum grippers, which should be as compact as possible to give the robot easy access to the cut parts.
