Flexible press automation
The automation highlight: The FeederPlus 6neo
The single-arm feeder for tandem press lines of up to 16 SPM
With a max. performance of 16 SPM, a load-bearing capacity of 100 kg and 5 degrees of freedom, the FeederPlus 6neo is perfect for linking up tandem press lines. It is the result of continuous further development of the FeederPlus, which has been a great success for Strothmann in numerous press lines and with many press manufacturers. Its defining feature is the kinematics that makes its unique functional integration possible. The FeederPlus 6neo can independently centre blanks in the Front of Line, both for single and for double parts. In the End of Line, the feeder can distribute workpieces on conveyor belts and deposit them in the right orientation, making additional shuttle systems and robots obsolete. Last but not least it is suitable for retrofitting projects – even with press spacings of up to 10,000 mm.

RoundTrack systems in press shops
For decades, our patented RoundTrack system has proven successful in press shops all over the world. Even heavy loads of up to 200 t are easy to move with this system. Thanks to an incredibly low rolling resistance, loads of up to 5 t can even be moved manually. Modern intralogistical processes - from simple dollies to driverless transport systems - are easy to implement in any press shop. Application examples include blank carts, coil and tool transport between factory buildings and tool change systems.
The core benefits
- Load-bearing capacity of up to 200 t, up to 5 t movable by hand
- Floor-level system without tripping hazards
- Traversable with forklift and pallet trucks
- High energy efficiency thanks to minimised rolling friction
- Extremely sturdy
- Customised logistics concepts
