Automatic shuttle table

Eurolaser has released an automatic shuttle table to allow the laser cutting process to be continued with no downtime. While one table is being processed the finished materials can be unloaded from the other table and this reloaded again from an ergonomically favourable position.

The company’s existing shuttle table version has undergone further automation. A button is pressed to release the newly loaded table. Changeover starts automatically once the cutting process on the second table is completed. The new material is cut automatically while at the same time the operator can unload the finished parts without any interruption in the cutting process.
