Bystronic (Elgin, IL) announces BySort as an available add-on to its ByTrans Cross automation system for loading and unloading laser cutting systems. BySort brings the ability to process large series of cut parts that need to be unloaded and sorted separately.
In the ByTrans Cross installation with BySort, an additional bridge is installed on the ByTrans Cross system, which can accommodate up to two sorting heads. The heads are installed already tooled, using the available gripper modules. BySort is designed to deposit the completed parts on an additional unloading position next to the laser cutting system.
In practice, BySort unloads and sorts the cut parts. Next, using a different route, ByTrans unloads the residual sheet, and can then fetch a new sheet from its own stock. BySort and ByTrans Cross are controlled from the laser cutting system’s touch screen and Bystronic’s ByVision Cutting user interface.For more information: https://www.bystronic.com/en/products/automation/BySort.php
