Sunrise APS Series

Automatic Plate Processing System

The Sunrise Automatic Plate System – APS –  is a fully automatic plate processing system that delivers unparalleled efficiency and precision for flat bar up to 12″ x 3/4″.

The Sunrise APS can seamlessly integrate with local internet networks via WiFi or Ethernet, granting access to various part files, such as DXF/NC1 files. For streamlined operations, offline software copies are available, facilitating efficient layout creation and swift upload to the machine. The Sunrise APS excels in applications such as base plates, connection plates, and more, offering unparalleled performance and precision.

Operation: The flat bar is placed onto the all-steel in-feed rollers, the pneumatic grippers engage and square the material, and the system automatically processes by punching and shearing to length using an industrial strength rack and pinion drive system.

The APS features user-friendly controls, an integrated safety frame and intuitive interfaces, making it accessible and easy to operate while being the safest system in the industry. Minimal training is needed, allowing operators to quickly adapt to the system and achieve efficient plate processing.
