Monorailsystem PHOENIX

Transfer at the highest possible level.

PHOENIX monorail equipment is one of a kind. Installed under the hall ceiling, there are effectively no barriers to cylinder transport between prepress area, cylinder storage and printing presses: fully-automated, quiet, fast and safe operation even over long distances.

The most important features:

  • Standard load 2500 kg, travel speed freely selectable up to 120 m/min
  • Standard lifting system in order to bridge differences in level of 30 m/min
  • Accessibility to cylinder storage on each level available
  • Automatically switchable, rail points integrated into the rail lines in order to approach different objectives
  • Quiet operation due to transport by coated castors and wheels on profiled aluminium rails with integrated conductor lines
  • Variable cylinder loading for large differences in length
  • Fixation of cylinder by prism holders in order to avoid axial slipping
  • Safeguard clamp for cylinders in order to prevent mechanical crash, making it possible to drive over staff aisles
  • Fully-automatic control by radio modules
  • Prevention of collisions by program control and ultrasonic sensors
