Highly customisable storage and retrieval

The Warehouse Automation System (WAS) offers a fully automated system for raw and finished material storage and retrieval in a customisable number of tower storage units. It is the ideal solution for lights-out processing of high volumes, and can be connected to multiple laser cutting machines in 3015 and 4020 formats.

  • Sheet sizes: 3070 x 1540 mm, 4090 x 2055 mm
  • Handles materials up to 30 mm
  • For Phoenix FL-3015, Phoenix FL-4020
  • For Puma 3015, Puma 4020
     

Highlights

Best-fit solution

WAS offers a custom number of towers with a minimum of four towers, in a single or double row configuration. The maximum capacity for input/output pallets is 3 or 5 tons. Stacking height is 90 mm. 

Continuous material flow

The loading and unloading device guarantees the best possible transfer of raw materials and finished parts using a peeling system, sorting position, with smooth return to the warehouse or to an optional third table alongside the machine.

Pallet transfer unit

A pallet transfer unit positioned on a linear track behind or between the towers quickly and efficiently moves the pallets in and out of the towers. Laser measurement ensures pallets are correctly placed.

Touchscreen interface

The graphical Touch-A interface and warehouse management software are intuitive and simple to use. A WIFI connection is established with the pallet transfer unit.

Future retrofit 

This MOVit modular automation unit can be added as a retrofit in the future.

Technical data

Options

Direct unload station

Cut sheets are unloaded on a third table alongside the machine where parts can be sorted and made directly available for additional processing.

Extra I/O station on tower 

I/O stations or simple output stations can be added on available towers to create multiple material or part access points.  These can be used to provide material to stand-alone machines or to bring parts to a sorting area or to press brakes.

Scratch-free unloading 

Chain system on forks prevents scratches on finished parts.
