The stationary sorting runs automatically using the robot handling system for tempering bed loading and unloading.
GPS.autofab calculates the necessary glass sheets for the tempering oven batch. These are then transported in the specified sequence from the sorting onto the horizontal transport section (BTA) in front of the tempering oven. The sheet stops at the end of the BTA: Size, weight, number of suction cups, start and end coordinates, and the placement mode are transmitted to the robot, and the required suction cups are activated. These can be activated individually to facilitate adjustment to the required contour and processing (cut-outs, drilling, etc.). The robot then picks up the glass sheet for "Pick and Place" or for "Drag and Drop" mode. In case of the “Pick and Place" function, small sheets are lifted into the specified position. On the other hand, large sheets are pushed into the specified position via the air cushion using the “Drag and Drop" function. The glass sheet is rotated or offset laterally if necessary, and subsequently moved into the position specified by the GPS.autofab.
