CINCINNATI - Marylandian -- Lantek, the multinational pioneer in the digital transformation of the sheet metal and metal industrial sector, announces a collaboration agreement with Euromac, an Italian worldwide supplier of machines for working with sheet metal including CNC Punching, Bending, and automated systems.

The agreement enables control of the "sorting cell" programmed with one of the most cutting-edge robots on the market, the Kuka KR 10, using two punching solutions from Lantek: Lantek Expert PUNCH-PLUS and Lantek Stackmaster. Combined, these solutions enable the automation of the discharge line for parts and their subsequent palletization and storage.

Lantek software solutions are responsible for the whole process, starting with programming the punching machine. Once this task is complete, the machine unloads the parts through a hatch. The parts pass along a conveyor belt until they reach an artificial vision table where a camera detects the position of the fallen part. Lantek software controls the activation and positioning of the robot's suction cups and positions the robot so it can pick up parts while telling it the shape of the part. This helps detect the rotation needed to place it properly on the pallet. Production can be completely unattended thanks to the full control of the punching and palletizing process. This allows automation of the entire production cycle for large volumes of parts.

"The close collaboration between Euromac and Lantek is a significant step towards the full automation of the punching lines and the subsequent palletization of the parts. By using state-of-the-art technology, such as artificial vision or robots, we can maximize production speed and flexibility while improving workers' conditions and safety," states Francisco Pérez, director of the OEMs channel at Lantek.

Ferrán Villanueva, sales manager at Euromac, 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 an efficient operation while guaranteeing the highest quality and tightest response times from this robot, one of the most cutting-edge on the market," concludes Villanueva.
