Company Profile

ASTES4® is an independent company based in Balerna, in southern Switzerland, which brings together the most highly qualified professionals with experience in the field of industrial automation, mechanical design and automation software development.

ASTES4® is the only provider of comprehensive FMS solutions for the cutting process. This thanks to an innovative and patented system, which, for the first time offers a real “SORTING” automation.

Our system can be interfaced and integrated with all systems and brands of cutting machines.

Show Preview

ASTES4SORT (A4SORT) is a patented "Intelligent FMS" (Flexible Manufacturing System) specifically designed for sorting. A4SORT manages the loading of sheet metal up to 20 mm thickness and 8,000 mm length and the sorting of single cut parts generated by 2D cutting machines. A4SORT is able to sort, move and stack cut parts of any shape, placing and kitting them for further use. A4SORT easily integrates with the manufacturing process of different application fields. A4SORT is especially suited to complement laser-cutting systems where specific requests due to the increasing number of installations, flexibility in part shapes and material thickness are required.
