Material Handling Showcase

A material transport trolley (shown here) from Kemper Storatec transports sheets to a loading and unloading station via a rail system. Using a suction unit, the gantry transfers the sheets onto the shuttle table for cutting machines where the sheets are processed further. After the cutting process, the finished sheets are automatically taken by means of a computing unit from the shuttle table and placed on a staging table to guarantee a completely unmanned operation and assures reliability during processing.
