Project details


A4 pocket frame


Design and manufacture of equipment for cutting the corners of the A4 frame and turning the lips over for welding

Special features

  • Digital manipulator with 3 grippers
  • Cutting station
  • Lip-turning station
  • Discharge conveyor with stock management for degraded mode


  • Picking up and setting down frames at the various stations using the digital manipulator
  • Discharge on a double conveyor with a second manipulator for distribution on these two conveyors
  • At the end of the conveyor, the frames are placed on the production line by means of a gripper


1,200 frames/hour

Our solution

This custom-built, automatically fed equipment transfers A4 frames to different stations for corner-cutting and lip-turning operations. The frames are then discharged onto a “smart” conveyor allowing production management and transfer to the downstream production line.
