Transfer Press Automation
Die Change Automation
Welcome to Atlas Technologies, USA
Atlas Technologies provides automation for metal forming processes, such as our world famous die change equipment, tri-axis (in-press)
transfers, through the window part transfer systems, transfer press finger tooling and our automatic storage and retrieval systems (ASRS),
for part and/or die storage and handling.
For the automotive, appliance, HVAC and other industries, Atlas offers robotic integration for the front of the press line (robotic destacking),
at the end of the press line with robotic stacking systems and robotic press to press applications. Atlas robotic solutions are available with
vision guidance systems, multiple stack or destack stations which are capable of processing aluminum or steel parts and the customer’s choice
of robot manufacturer.
Atlas also offers conventional destacking systems to separate, feed and accurately locate individual sheet metal blanks for subsequent loading
into a standalone press, tandem press line or transfer press. Our conventional part stacking systems are available in magnetic belt, magnetic
roll and vacuum based units (for aluminum parts).
For applications that require manual or specialized part racking or containerization, Atlas offers end of line systems which are deployed after
the last press. The end of line system shuttles parts to one of three operator stations, presenting them in an ergonomic fashion to reduce
personnel injuries and to increase production speed by distributing the workload. End of line part containerization is available in a robotic
format with vision guidance for certain applications.
For the automotive, rail, wind energy, aerospace, agricultural, steel coil pressing and other heavy manufacturing industries, Atlas offers
self-powered transport carts. Atlas transport carts are based on our die change equipment which is known throughout the automotive industry
as being the best. Transport carts have been used in hundreds of applications for the fast, safe and smooth movement of materials or product
through manufacturing facilities.
With the importance of blank cleanliness, especially for class A materials, Atlas’ product line includes the Cyclone washer for blanks and
coils. The Cyclone cleans sheet metal for stamping or blanking operations, and is available in offline robotic cells, or in line with the
press for new applications or retrofit into existing lines. For additional oiling of the blank for deep draw applications, Atlas offers the
oil reapply unit (oiler), which is a fully programmable, water or oil based fluid unit with individually controlled, self cleaning nozzles that
provide uniform and precise, edge to edge coverage of the blank, both top and bottom.
