The LCS x Astes4 solution, presented at Lamiera 2019, is a combination of the most advanced technologies in the field of handling and picking, which, managed by the modular LCS software, guarantees flexibility, productivity and repeatability.
Fully automatic, agile and safe, Grenzebach AGV transports up to 1200 kg at a speed of 1.5 m per second and, thanks to its very low height (340 mm), it easily positions itself under the various types of load carriers (trolleys, pallets or racks, shelves) existing, lifting and transporting them to the destination prepared following the path determined by the LCS software and also maintained by two laser scanners mounted on board or pre-set references.
Once the machining operation has been completed, the load carrier is returned to its place autonomously by the AGV itself.
Thanks to the customization of the route profile, the solution is extremely flexible and safe for all indoor environments, without the need for protection zones. This means space-saving and easy integration into existing environments with structures such as processing machines, conveyor belts, elevators, robot cells and secondary packaging systems.
An impressive innovation, which is offered by LCS thanks to the partnership with Grenzebach.
The original software that LCS customizes for each application with Grenzebach AGVs makes all solutions truly unique and represents the digital soul of the innovative intralogistics handling tool, ensuring maximum efficiency of the entire system.
In the recent application developed by LCS in collaboration with Astes4, the AGV carries out two different handling activities:
- In the first cycle, the Automatic Guided Vehicle leaves the operator’s workstation with a simple pallet and heads towards A4HEAVY, the Astes4 “Intelligent FMS” (Flexible Manufacturing System) automatic sorting system that manages the loading of sheet metal and the orderly unloading of single cut parts obtained from 2D cutting machines.
Thanks to LCS’s software programming, the AGV waits at the workstation and, once the load has been completed, restarts towards the operator’s workstation where it will deposit the load itself.
- In the second cycle, the AGV acts as a link between two machines, waiting for the load at the A4HEAVY work station and then transporting it to a second machine.
The LCS x Astes4 solution, exhibited at Lamiera 2019, is a combination of the most advanced technologies in the field of handling and picking, which, ruled by the modular LCS software, guarantees flexibility, productivity and repeatability.
The A4HEAVY sorting technology, in fact, becomes particularly powerful when combined with automatic warehouses and innovative internal handling solutions that ensure agile and seamless management of the cut products, with a consequent reduction in the handling of large slabs, which in itself is dangerous and costly in terms of time and resources.
LCS boasts over 30 years of experience in the integration and implementation of intralogistics systems and automated warehouses, with more than 150 successful projects in various industrial sectors. Always at the customer’s side to return the maximum added value with reliable solutions and cutting-edge technology innovation.
