Pile turners are a crucial piece of equipment for any print shop, allowing for the efficient and safe handling of large stacks of paper. However, to fully maximize the benefits of a pile turner, it’s important to have the right accessories. With the latest advancements in high-tech pile turners and their new features, print shops and packaging companies can now improve quality control and reduce waste in their operations.
Here are some of the top Accessories to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your pile turner.
Must- have accessories for pile handling
Sensor and automation Technology for Improved Accuracy and Efficiency
Improved Accuracy with High-Tech Pile Turners is possible thanks to advanced sensors and automation technology, which can greatly improve accuracy in print operations. By detecting the thickness and weight of each paper stack, these sensors can ensure that each job is set up correctly, reducing the risk of misprints and wasted paper. Additionally, automated systems can eliminate the need for manual adjustments, saving time and reducing the risk of human error.
Our machines can come with:
- The ACS: an Automatic Centering System to center the load onto the pallet
- The APD: an Automatic Pallet dispenser to collect and stack pallets
- The APL: an Automatic Pallet Loader to handle plastic pallets for a “Non-Stop” Cycle
Sensor and automation for Reduced Waste and Costs
Waste reduction is a top priority for print shops looking to improve their bottom line. High-tech pile turners can help in this regard by reducing the amount of wasted paper and materials. With advanced sensors, high-tech pile turners can identify any paper stock defects, such as curled or creased edges, and reject those stacks before they are processed. By reducing the amount of waste generated during the print process, print shops can save on material costs and reduce their environmental impact.
Safety and Ergonomics features
High-tech pile turners are also designed with safety and ergonomics in mind. With features such as automated lifting and lowering mechanisms, operators can avoid potential injuries from heavy lifting. Additionally, advanced safety systems can detect any potential hazards and stop the equipment to prevent accidents. By improving safety and ergonomics, print shops can reduce the risk of workplace injuries and protect both the operator and the machine.
An air table is an essential accessory for any pile turner, as it allows for the easy lifting and movement of heavy stacks of paper. A jogger helps to align and square the edges of paper stacks. By ensuring that each stack of paper is properly aligned, you can reduce the risk of misprints and improve the quality of your finished products.
The Air Jogger will separate each sheet, remove dust, align them and allow the operator to remove waste sheets and change the pallet if needed. All of our stationary models – The Master Toppy, The Twister 1600 and the Excel 2000- come with this optional.
Toppy Packaging designs and produces its Pile Turners in Italy, thanks to a team of experienced engineers. Custom attachments can be designed and installed on your pile turner directly by our team, to suit your specific workflow requirements. This may include specialized clamps or grips to hold unique paper stocks, or custom sensors to detect paper thickness or weight. Our machines can work both as Stand- Alone, or can be integrated in a production line. Conveyors and buffers can be added to the line for a better handling of the load.
By investing in custom attachments, you can further streamline your print shop workflow and improve the efficiency of your pile turner.
