Automatic cutting system - BASS
For the cutting widths 115 | 132 | 168
The automation solution for the finishing process
The BASS system is the perfect automation solution for your finishing process – whether in label production, packaging or for commercial printing processes. Robot-assisted, fully automatic processing of strips to be cut including the transportation towards the processing machine, for example to a die cutter or any other converting machine. The process involves alignment as well as the properly guidance of the layers. The BASS system can be operated on baumannperfecta high-speed cutters 115 to 168. Of course, manual operation is possible at any time as well.
Quality Made in Germany
The BASS system was developed in Germany and is produced at our plant based in Solms. The latest generation of baumannperfecta high-speed cutters, in combination with the use of high-quality robotic components and the intelligent software of the control unit guarantee precision and high availability of the system. The robust basic construction of the machine frame ensures a smooth run and precise cutting results. The used parts and components are designed for continuous use, so that the cutters can be operated in 3 shifts - around the clock.
Perfect cutting results
Precision and performance characterize the baumannpferceta high-speed cutters. When cutting in automation, the robot not only takes over the tasks of the operator. Thanks to the intelligent control unit it also stands for sensitive touch, thus guaranteeing always perfect cutting results.
Easy to use
The control units of the cutters and the robots are designed for easy, intuitive operation via touch screen. Optionally, the cutting system can be equipped with an additional control panel, thus always offering a fast access to the parameter data.
The BASS system has been designed for 3-shift-operation. In combination with other peripheral machines as the BASA evolution or the vertical buffer, the complete jogging and cutting process can be fully automated. Moreover, the short set-up times guarantee high availability.
Besides the effect that you may use your staff more effectively thanks to automatic cutting, the BASS system has been optimized for the careful use of resources. State of the art drive technology and the use of energy-saving technologies stand for lowest possible consumption values.
Unmanned. Safe. Fast.
The robot, which is integrated in the cutting system, takes over the fully automatic processing of single-strip cuts from the sheet. First, it fixes the layer in its position until the false clamp comes down. After the cut, the robot takes over the alignment of the layer and then transfers it to the next processing machine. The feeding can optionally be done to the right, to the left, or alternately to right and left.
BASS the next Generation
The new generation of fully automatic cutting systems has been launched on the market in Novembe 2020. Based on a new robot system and with newly developed gripper components, further areas of application are possible with the next generation. Depending on the specific requirements, we offer individual solutions with maximum flexibility with both systems used.
An absolute highlight is given by the combination of the new robot technology with the BASA evolution - the world's first and only fully automatic jogging and cutting system for postpress in the graphics industry. Simply load your pallet into the BASA evolution and receive thefinished products at the end of the line without any further intervention by the operating staff.
