Flexible Automation (FA-L)

Advanced load/unload system

FA-L can unload a processed sheet and load the next sheet in just 35 seconds (FA-L 3015). By keeping an uninterrupted production flow, the system maximises machine throughput and is ideal for large-volume applications with common material type, thickness and size.

  • Sheet size formats of 3050 x 1525 mm, 4065 x 2035 mm and 6160 x 2035 mm
  • Handles materials up to 20 mm (FA-L 3015), up to 30mm (FA-L 4020, 6020)
  • For Phoenix FL-3015, Phoenix FL-4020, Phoenix FL-6020
  • For Puma 3015, Puma 4020, Puma 6020

Highlights
