Smart solutions Sheet metal automation redefined by Remmert
Remmert will be sharing the advantages of an integrated internal storage and transport concept based on modularity and manufacturer independence at Blechexpo 2019. In addition to this, the company will also be exhibiting the ‘SortFLEX’ module at the international trade exhibition.
Remmert specialises in automatic storage and logistics systems for sheet metal and long goods. Not many players are aware of the plus points of these systems. Hence, with an aim to educate industry players on the benefits of an integrated internal storage and transport concept based on modularity and manufacturer independence, the company has plans to participate at this year’s Blechexpo event. The sheet metal working show is expected to kick-start from November 5, 2019 in Germany.
Remmert @Blechexpo 2019
At the international trade fair, Remmert will interact with visitors and explain to them how one can achieve an increase in measurable productivity by integrating manufacturer-independent sheet metal automation. Components can also be interconnected owing to the modular principle of standard components which enables to create material flow concepts based on the requirements of the customer. Flexibility and freedom in configuring specific processes are some of the other features of this concept.
It is interesting to note that each system can be expanded with ease because of its modularity feature which makes it convenient for companies to meet significant production requirements as well as plan for future requirements.
Exhibiting the new ‘SortFLEX’ module
The firm will also be showcasing the ‘SortFLEX’ module at Blechexpo 2019. It is the latest module in the FLEX family and is a fully automatic solution for sorting laser-finished parts. The earlier module, ‘LaserFLEX’ is claimed to be one of Remmert’s core automation concepts. This module allows the simultaneous and fully automatic loading and unloading of up to four laser cutting systems even from different manufacturers.
In addition to this, by decoupling the loading and unloading unit, the module is able to attain material change times of only about one minute. Industry leaders can use both the models – SortFLEX and LaserFLEX in order to ensure process efficiency.
The firm states that the ‘Basic Tower Sheet’ can also be used to store raw material and buffer finished parts. The LaserFLEX then picks up the sheets in the Basic Tower and puts the cut parts back into storage as required. The SortFLEX module can be used by industry players who want to eliminate the effort of sorting finished parts manually. The market launch of the module is expected to take place in the latter half of 2019.
All in all, the focus of Remmert at this year’s Blechexpo is ‘Integrated material flow concepts that can grow modularly with the production requirements of customers’. Do visit the show to witness many such innovations in the making.
