Mitsubishi Electric Acquires ASTES4 SA in Switzerland

The recent strategic purchase of ASTES4 SA automated sheet metal sorting systems has strengthened Mitsubishi Electric’s global laser processing machine business. As a result, Mitsubishi Electric can provide customers with integrated solutions that require less manual loading, unloading and sorting to realise higher productivity and efficiency.

Sheet metal laser processing 

Based in Switzerland, ASTES4 SA (ASTES4) is engaged in development, production and sales of patented automated
sorting solutions
for sheet metal laser processing machines. As a wholly owned subsidiary, customers can now benefit from integrated solutions available across the global market with ASTES4’s automated sorting systems embedded into Mitsubishi Electric’s sheet metal laser processing machines.

Increase in productivity

Sheet metal laser processing involves loading the material, laser cutting, unloading cut materials as well as removing and sorting cut parts from the frame. A shortfall of skilled human resources in production facilities around the world, combined with the ability of fibre laser machines to produce higher volumes of work has escalated worldwide demand for sorting solutions. A significant increase in productivity is made possible by automating sheet metal laser processing, including pre- and post-processing.
