storing large print cylinders efficiently
Automated printing plate carousels are a fast and efficient way to store large hollow print cylinders and sleeves in less space and with more storage capacity than conventional static racks. These printing plate carousels provide product protection, space savings, inventory organization, quick accessibility, and employee safety in one cost-effective solution.
specialty vertical carousels for print cylinders & sleeves
The printing plate carousels will store individual sleeves up to 25" in diameter and up to 10' long on cantilever arms that rotate with the push of a button to bring print cylinders and sleeves directly to the point of use. The rotating arms maximize the use of your facility's vertical cubic space and increase your storage capacity without the need for expansion.
With just the push of a button, the carousel brings individual print cylinders and sleeves to an ergonomic, waist-level height for quick and easy unloading. The cylinders also don't need to be manually lifted by employees, which reduces the risk of product damage and employee injury.
Automation also provides more organized storage. Print cylinders and sleeves have pre-set locations so it's easy for workers to find and store the correct item by rotating the carousel and sliding the cylinders into or from a forklift. It also eliminates the need for workers to lift and bend when retrieving or storing inventory, which reduces the risk of injury and costly worker compensation claims. Each carousel can also be equipped with safety curtains that cut power to the motors when they are crossed, which prevents tooling from being damaged and workers from being injured.
Because of its vertical design, the automated printing plate carousels also maximize storage capacity by utilizing unused overhead air space in a small footprint. Its high storage capacity in less space reduces your need for maintaining off-site storage costs. Customization options are also available to the vertical carousels can work with your exact needs.
