Auburn Hills, MI – Dynamic Robotic Solutions will introduce a new robot laser cutting system for hot stamp press lines at FabTech 2015. DRS will be showing a robot cutting cell and explaining the new Inline Laser Cutting (ILC) solution for hot stamping lines.

DRS has exclusively partnered with global press leader AP&T on the ILC and will be at their FabTech booth (S-4531). The ILC is a revolutionary product that uses modular cells containing dual FANUC robots with fiber lasers to perform the cutting and AP&T material handling to convey the parts directly from the hot stamp press. The entire system is “light tight” for safety and uses an overhead mezzanine for the control cabinets to reduce the system footprint. Optional “hybrid” modules allow the system to be loaded by operators when full laser cutting is not required by the press.

“Fabtech is the perfect place for us to show the significant advances we’ve made in robotic laser cutting of hot stamped parts” said DRS VP Sales & Marketing Michael Nardozzi. “This will provide a new option for hot stampers that today primarily use 5-axis CNC laser systems from such companies as Prima Power or Trumpf. The ILC will reduce the excess WIP required by those systems and the floorspace that current ‘islands of automation’ require while allowing quick delivery of the finished hot stamped parts. At the same time the ILC will maintain the flexibility to inject operator loaded parts to the in-line system to give the best of both worlds. We invite attendees to visit us in AP&T’s booth to see how DRS can revolutionize their metal stamping process.”
