Lantek brings one of the most cutting-edge Euromac robots in the punching machine industry "to life"

  • The entire punching and subsequent palletizing performed by the Kuka KR 10 robot is controlled using the Lantek Expert PUNCH-PLUS and Lantek Stackmaster solutions

Vitoria-Gasteiz, 8th of June, 2020.- Lantek, the multinational pioneer in the digital transformation of the sheet metal and fabrication sector, has announced a collaboration agreement with the Italian company, Euromac, recognized worldwide as a supplier of machines for working with sheet metal, including CNC Punches, Benders and automated sheet metal systems.

The agreement enables control of the “sorting cell” programmed with the Kuka KR 10, one of the most cutting-edge robots on the market. It uses two punching solutions from Lantek - Lantek Expert PUNCH-PLUS and Lantek Stackmaster, automating the unloading line for parts and their subsequent palletization and storage.

The Lantek software solutions are responsible for the whole process, which starts with programming the CNC Punch. During the punching process, the machine ejects/unloads the parts through a hatch. The parts then pass along a conveyer belt to an AI vision table where a camera detects the orientation of the fallen part. The Lantek software uses this information about the shape and orientation of the part to control the robot’s suction cups positioning and activating them to pick up each part. The robot finishes by rotating and placing the part in its correct location on the storage pallet.

The full control of the punching and palletizing process makes it possible to automate the whole production cycle for large volumes of parts, allowing production to be completely unattended.

"The close collaboration between Euromac and Lantek is a significant step forward towards the full process automation of punching lines and the subsequent palletization of the parts, using state-of-the-art technology such as artificial vision systems and robots. This technology maximizes production speed and flexibility and improves workers' conditions and safety", states Francisco Pérez, director of the OEMs channel at Lantek.

The sales manager at Euromac, Ferrán Villanueva, highlights the importance of this collaboration, “For us, this is a great opportunity to use Lantek software for the Kuka KR 10. It will allow us to optimize the processes, reduce times and achieve efficient operation, guaranteeing the highest quality and tightest response times from this robot, one of the most cutting-edge on the market.”
