Typical custom equipment solutions for the Print and Paper Industries include:
Pit-mounted lift and turn combinations allow operators to ergonomically and efficiently load boxes and bundles of business forms onto a pallet for shipping.
Fixed height car with V-deck top and powered traversing base is used to transport rolls on a fixed track from one work cell to another, and transport empty "cores" when returning.
A custom designed scissor lift with traversing base and tilting top with V-deck is used to remove rolls from a mandrel, transport them, then raise the roll and "kick" (tilt) the roll off the side of the lift and onto the in-feed side of a slitting machine.
Special 90-degree tilter used to receive rolls of varying lengths on one platform wing, and manually shuttle the roll until its end is in contact with the second tilter wing prior to upending the roll on end.
A custom scissor lift with powered transport base and V-deck is used to pick rolls out of "saddles" and transport them down a fixed track, then place them back onto a waiting "saddle" for staging.
Scissor tables are used to index down automatically as layers of cardboard are dropped onto the lift on the out-feed side of a cutter.
We have worked with some amazing teams.
