Rotary Die Board Storage
A Spanish company “Serra” offers various solutions to make corrugated factories safer and easier places to work. They also have a new technology with regards to the storage of rotary die boards.
Rotary die cutters enable multifaceted die-cutting to double the productivity with their double running speed and larger diameter compared to platen die cutters. On the other hand, storage and loading of large-sized die cutters is physically demanding. “Serrastock LC” is a rotary die board storage system which solves this problem.
Imagine the structure of an adjustable shelf-system, often used in libraries and storage facilities. It seems the sliding support system structure of “Serrastock LC” was taken from it and has been revised for rotary die boards. When operators take off the rotary die boards from the “Serrastock LC”, they can assure to maintain convenient access to all the dies in the aisle by turning and moving the grip handle of the corresponding shelf.
Also, a simple crane machine called “Serrarm” makes it easier for an operator to pick up rotary die boards and move them to where a box making machine stands. This results in the operator not having to work hard to carry the large and heavy die boards manually.
This die storage system allows for convenient access to all the dies and can triple the storage capacity. Furthermore, the vertical disposition of the dies improves safety in the workplace. It facilitates fire-fighting contingencies such as efficient fire extinguishing with sprinklers installed on the ceiling. “Serrastock LC” offers many advantages and you will have a reliable way of keeping dies tidy and in order. I think the system will change the image of a physically demanding work environment at a corrugated cardboard packaging plant.
