LVD Strippit has introduced a compact material storage and retrieval tower for select models of its CO2 laser cutting systems. According to the company, the space-saving system allows optimal material flow and unattended operation with uninterrupted processing of laser-cut parts.
The CT tower system enables automated production from stored raw material to stacked finished parts while providing increased storage capacity.
Units are available in four-, six-, and 10-pallet configurations. The system handles workpieces as large as 10 by 5 ft. and material thicknesses up to 0.79 in. with a maximum load/unload pallet storage capacity of 3.31 tons.
Spreading magnet, air gun, and peeling cylinder sheet separation devices are used to prevent loading of more than one sheet at a time and separate sheets for automatic loading.
The compact tower is offered for Orion 3015 Plus and Sirius 3015 Plus laser cutting systems. Both systems are engineered as automation-ready and can be integrated or retrofitted with the tower unit.
