For unloading purposes the loading frame that normally is only equipped with suction cups for loading the sheet material can also be equipped with unloading claws. The clawfingers grab under the cut pieces on the lifted pallet of the pallet changer (left). Subsequently the pieces are lifted and brought above the unloading table (middle). There the claws open and drop the cut pieces just above the table. Then the loader moves to the stack position to pick up a new sheet.
