The SmartGate forms the heart of the machine. Together with the brush tables, the SmartGate prevents tilting and unwanted welding of parts. The intelligent support moves along with the cutting head, thus offering comprehensive part support. The ejector cylinder automatically finds the best point for every part geometry to push the part out of the scrap skeleton. In the process, the part is fixed between the ejector cylinder and SmartGate and removed downward from the scrap skeleton in a guided movement. The SmartGate then opens and a sorting flap transports the part into one of the containers without affecting process reliability.
