Highlights

Best-fit solution

WAS automation 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 uses a peeling system to guarantee efficient transfer of raw materials and finished parts, sorting position, and smooth return to the warehouse with sorted/stacked parts from the FA-P pallet transfer. 

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.

Technical data

Options

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.
