After the parts have been marked, the rotary table rotates the workpieces out of the laser system. Then the workpieces are picked up by a second robot gripper and placed on a conveyor belt.
The workpieces are placed at an angle of 45 degrees to the base plate of the rotary table in order to prevent their movement during the rotation. The diagonal z-axis of the laser system is installed at an angle of 45 degrees, which means that it is perpendicular to the part, which has been positioned at the same angle.
An electrical lift door on the side of the machine allows the user to use the laser system for the flexible manufacturing of individual pieces.
The 2 m high light barrier in front of the rotary table system stops the system automatically in the event that the machine is accidentally approached during automatic operation.
The laser system uses a customized adaptation of the AC-LASER Software Suite by ACSYS. A database connection to the company´s in-house SAP R3 system allows the automatic setup of the system using a barcode scanner.
