Baumann details upgraded automatic pile turners

Finishing technology specialist Baumann has announced further details of the latest generation of its automatic pile turners.

Distributed in the UK market by Friedheim International, the machines have been designed to help ease bottlenecks issues in both carton and corrugated production.

The flagship and fully automated BSW-AUP pile turner is an upgradeable inline solution that Friedheim says can be integrated into logistics systems.

The device can take on a number of tasks, including precise pile alignment in the centre of the pallet, change from transport pallets to system pallets, and separating the sheets prior to the printing or die-cutting process.

Friedheim says the BSW-AUP, which can turn a range of substrates, has been developed specifically for the needs of non-stop automatic sheet-fed printing and die-cutting machines.

Sizes 3B, 6 and 7 are available, with maximum sheet sizes of 750 x 1,060, 1,030 x 1,440, & 1,210 x 1,640mm, respectively. The turning process is fully automatic and controlled by the program, while the vibration and alignment devices are infinitely variable.

Baumann concentrates on finding solutions to your cutting and handling hold ups and manufactures a wide range of products to offer the ideal machine for each format range

“The manual turning of paper, cardboard or other, similar materials is a backbreaking, time-consuming and thus expensive process,” Friedheim says, adding: “The Baumann pile turners offer the opportunity to save that time and reduce those costs.

“Baumann concentrates on finding solutions to your cutting and handling hold ups and manufactures a wide range of products to offer the ideal machine for each format range.”

Friedheim also picks up on the environmental benefits of the new solutions, saying: “With all eyes on recyclability and the environment, stakeholders and brand owners want to know their product is arriving in something eco-friendly; taking time, labour, and energy out of the process does exactly that.

“The range is developed to achieve very low power consumption, energy efficient high-pressure fans contribute to lowering a factory’s overall carbon footprint.”
