Sheet metal companies nowadays are still using traditional methods and processes, many by hand for their sheet metal operations.
The era of Industry 4.0 with increases in automation, are creating new challenges for the Sheet Metal industries.
Today’s blog will discuss how the automation of sheet metal fabrication can help you set up a strong market position for the future.
The Sheet Metal Industry is having a difficult time with the introduction of digitalization.
Many small and medium-sized sheet metal fabrication companies still rely on manual procedures.
The challenge for the sheet metal processing industry lies in finding quality automation solutions, especially for new market requirements such as short-term orders.
The digitalization and networking of machines and systems to create greater operating efficiencies creates many optimisation opportunities.
Vertical Lift Machine can help Sheet Metal Companies introduce automation and digitalisation with their business process with Baumalog Storage systems and Dalmec industrial manipulators.
SHEET METAL – BAUMALOG STORAGE SYSTEM
The MonoTower® automated storage system is used to store long-load products (bars, profiles, pipes, etc.) and sheets (metal plates, boards, laminated panels, etc.), pallets as well as many other heavy and large objects.
The system consists of one storage column and one transporting column with a moving extractor shifting trays between the storage column and the loading station.
Loading and unloading is performed using overhead crane or forklift truck.
A single MonoTower® system can be easily upgraded to TwinTower®.
The TwinTower® automated storage system is used to store long-load products (bars, profiles, pipes, etc.) and sheets (metal plates, boards, laminated panels, etc.), pallets and many other heavy and large objects.
The system consists of two storage columns and one transporting column with a moving extractor, shifting trays between the storage columns and the loading station.

DALMEC INDUSTRUAL MANIPULATORS FOR MOVING SHEET METALS
Pneumatic lifter – metal sheets
Dalmec Manipulator Partner type, fixed overhead version, equipped with adjustable suction cups device designed to grip, handle, and rotate metal sheets with different weight and dimensions.
The pneumatic manipulator Partner PE overhead version eliminates any obstructions on the floor.
The flange of the Manipulator is manufactured with holes for the fastening with screws to a robust plate to the ceiling or to a shelf or to an offset arm placed on a column (proposed solution).
All movements are free and are obtained with minimum effort by the direct action of the operator on the gripping tooling or on the load.
Dalmec pneumatic lifter for metal sheets handling
Dalmec presents a wide range of versatile solutions allowing the lifting of products weighing from 10 up to 1500 kilograms.
This is possible because we can design and manufacture gripping systems for any kind of application.
