Expanded Automation Line for Laser Cutting Machines

LVD Strippit has expanded its automation offerings with MOVit, a new range of Tower Automation System (TAS) and Warehouse Automation System (WAS) options for LVD Phoenix and Electra series laser cutting machines.

"MOVit automation systems keep material flow continuous, production uninterrupted, and sheets and parts organized efficiently, addressing the industry need for automated material handling and providing the ability to harness the full productivity of the fiber laser cutting machine," said a company spokesperson.

MOVit TAS is a single or double tower storage system that can be integrated with up to two laser cutting machines. This tower system offers 16 different configurations available for 3015, 4020 and 6020 laser machine formats.

MOVit WAS offers a custom number of towers beginning at a minimum of three towers, in single or double row configurations. Each pallet has a capacity of 3 or 5 tons and a stack height of 90 mm. Multiple laser cutting machines can be connected to the system using integrated load/unload devices. Output stations can be added to WAS to deliver cut sheets to a sorting area or sorted parts to other machines such as press brakes. The standard WAS configuration allows for full lights-out production as finished sheets are returned to available storage. WAS is available for 3015 and 4020 laser machine formats.

Both TAS and WAS offer the option for unloading directly on the machine/s. Cut sheets are unloaded on a third table where parts can be sorted and made available for additional processing.

MOVit automation systems feature a small footprint and customizable configurations. They are retrofittable to existing Phoenix and Electra laser cutting machines.

The MOVit automation line comes as a result of LVD's acquisition of COMPAC S.r.l., a company that designs and manufactures high-tech product handling, process automation and goods storage systems.
