Additional buffer and transport systems
• Transport system BTE
Pushing systems can take the reams out of the jogger, the gripper transport system or the loader and transport them towards the cutter. BTE can be equipped with one or two buffer-spaces. It is suitable wherever the reams can be pushed. Transport-times of the BTE are shorter than those of the BFS. BTE usually feeds the cutter via the rear-table. It can also be installed in combination with a BFS-R (5th buffer-space) or as support for the front-table feeding. The reams are transported in a "straight-forward movement".
• Air-Board Systems BLL
Air-Board Systems offer numerous buffer spaces for jogged reams. They bridge the waiting-times between jogging and cutting. Air-Boards, which are put between the reams, separate the reams and are also used for the ream's transport. Air-Boards are put in or taken out by the operator.
Air-Tables allow the easy transport of jogged or cut layers. The Air-Tables are delivered in rectangular or square form for different formats. A low-pressure blower supplies the required air. The balls of the air-valves are pressed down by the weight of the layer so that the air can flow, forming an air-cushion between the table and the material. Even heavy materials can be transported with a minimum effort.
• Gripper transport system BFS
Gripper transport systems take the jogged reams out of the automatic jogger and transport them towards the cutter. BFS can be equipped with one or two buffer-spaces. This is the "classic rear-table feeding". The layers are transported in a "straight-forward movement". BFS is very efficient and dynamic. It is able to transport the layer directly towards the cutter without any intermediate stops.
• Curved Gripper System BFS-R
The gripper transport system BFS-R, more commonly known as the "Curved Gripper System", offers the most efficient way to feed a cutter via the rear table. The jogged ream is transported from the front side of the cutter, from a BASA, an automatic jogger or an automatic loader towards the cutter's rear-table over an angle of 90°. As the cutter is cutting the ream, the BFS-R is filling the buffer positions. This allows the cutter operator to continuously cut.
