Bystronic materials handlingByTrans Cross is a new loading and unloading system developed for its fibre laser cutting machines says Bystronic. The company claims this system offers users full automation for producing long runs of components while retaining the flexibility of manual handling for fulfilling smaller jobs.

It’s claimed the modular design allows it to be integrated between a laser cutting centre and a warehouse or used as a stand-alone solution. The basic configuration has two loading carriages for storing material, however, additional options include the BySort bridge and two sorting heads with gripper modules.
