CORONA cylinder storage system

The optimal solution for storing cylinders and loading presses

It makes sense to store cylinders without a current job outside of the production area. The Bauer solution for separate storage of large cylinder quantities stands out thanks to its intensive use of space with very tightly packed cylinder storage. A rack control software solution based on an SQL server is available for fast and direct access to the required cylinders using sophisticated technology. Cylinders can be put into/removed from storage using a transport device or this can be done fully automatically from/to the press. The ideal solution for the customer can be developed based on a standard system and drawing on the experience from implementing numerous projects.

Retrieval unit

The individual solution for the cylinder handling of the retrieval unit for packaging cylinder racks, which is based on many implemented projects, can be adapted to customer-specific requirements.

Input/output units

For cylinder input and output, we offer various options for customer specific requirements:

  • Sequencer chain for handling individual cylinders (loading/unloading with manual crane)
  • Pickup from a cylinder trolley (customer-specific or made by printing machine manufacturer)
  • Transfer from pallet (placement of the pallet with forklift)
