Material buffer

Starting with unattended shifts

An easy start to automated production

The material buffer expands your production capacity – by day and by night. After the raw material is loaded in the micro-store, an automated loading unit in the laser cutting machine makes it available. The cut sheets are also unloaded in the material buffer. While the machine is running, workers can devote themselves to other tasks. The same is true during the night.

A perfect solution when space is limited

With the material buffer, a loading and unloading unit and a laser cutting machine, you can use a small space to process large orders.

Entry-level system with quick logistics processes

Quick material changes, easy handling and structured storage for raw materials take centre stage.

Investment with great potential

With a low investment risk, you can open the door to automated production, even with limited space on the shop floor.

A level of variety that meets your individual needs

The maximum possible potential is utilized and your production capacity is expanded to match your operating sequences.

Starting with unattended production

Lower your part costs and increase your productivity with unattended production and night shifts.

Simple operation

It's easy to get started with automated production, as the system is easily handled using the production plan.

Material buffer, compact layout
Compact layout – perfect when space is limited

With the material buffer, a loading and unloading unit and a laser cutting machine, you can use a small space to process large orders. Particularly in comparison to cart solutions, you gain a great deal of space in your production. At the same time, you will be increasing your storage capacity - at low cost.

Loading with the loading and unloading station

The raw material is separated from the transport medium at the loading and unloading station – regardless of whether it is a wooden pallet or a wooden beam. Once it has been repacked onto the material buffer's robust metal pallet, it is loaded into the system's buffer storage without a crane or manual correction.
