Process live: Broetje Automation, Rebstock and Zünd show Automated Sorting and Kitting System

12 July 2019


Minimize risks - Increase quality and throughput thanks to end-to-end process automation

A key element for industrial production is a coordinated design and digital networking of all stations in the value chain, because the interfaces between individual production stations are often the bottleneck and source of errors in production. The Automated Sorting and Kitting System (ASK) developed by Broetje-Automation makes it possible to eliminate this interface in the processing of composite blanks. The picking, sorting and draping of blanks is done by a fully automated robot system. The ASK system computer-controlled calculates the optimum blanks on the cutter table, picks up the individual blanks and sorts them as required for the next process steps.

This integration of automatic sorting functions eliminates the need for time-consuming manual sorting of blanks. The automatic sorting system manages with up to 25% less working space and thus saves space for other production steps in the necessary clean rooms.

The special area will be realised jointly by Rebstock Consulting, Broetje-Automation and Zünd Systemtechnik.

The "Process live" area can be found at the booth of Rebstock Consulting, booth 9C77.
