Vidir’s Print Cylinder Carousel is an automated vertical carousel that effortlessly stores and retrieves print cylinders vertically which increases storage capacity and accessibility. This print cylinder storage system integrates into busy production environments, facilitating printing press changeovers with quick and efficient storage. The unique ‘carrier bar loop hanger’ allows a single operator to safely load and unload print cylinders to and from the carousel.
Increases Available Storage:
The Print Cylinder Carousel increases useable storage capacity by automating storage, creating productive print cylinder storage out of otherwise inefficient overhead space. The product to operator principle ensures that print cylinders will always be easily accessible regardless of whether they are 10’ in the air or 30’ in the air. The print cylinder carousel features built to specification flexibility which will guarantee highly productive storage.
Increase Health and Safety
Automated storage systems eliminate wasteful and potentially harmful steps for stocking and retrieving heavy print cylinder. Vidir carousels accomplish this by automating retrieval and presenting print sleeves at an ergonomically optimum height which reduces unnecessary bending, walking, lifting, and pushing which will reduce work related injuries.
