A modular way to increase productivity.
The Kongsberg Automate board feeder and stacker is the perfect way to increase productivity and give your business a competitive edge. It’s an easy to use pallet-to-pallet solution.
With stack height at 915 mm/36 in. and quick automatic load cycles it is the optimal solution for short run production on all typical packaging and display materials.
The optional underside camera scans the sheet from below (the print side) and automatically locates the registration marks, barcodes and the corner of the sheet – saving between 20-30 minutes per set up!
The investment in the automated Feeder & Stacker ensures that we can achieve more in less time. The underside camera alone, which takes away the manual processes of checking each sheet and calculating registration marks, will save us up to 30 minutes on each job.
The Kongsberg Feeder & Stacker is one of the most* advanced automated sheet handling solution for large format digital finishing. Providing a seamless way to increase your productivity, the feeder and stacker combination will speed up your short run production by eliminating operator intervention and manual material loading bottlenecks. The result? Greater unattended operation!
* The only other more advanced system is the Kongsberg Robotic Material Handler
Processing a stack height of 915 mm/36 in. means fewer pallet changes and continuous handling of materials. And, on the subject of materials, the Kongsberg Feeder & Stacker combination can handle sheet sizes of up to 3200x1600 mm/126x63 in., as well as all typical packaging and display materials:
The board feeder is specifically designed to cause no harm to the board or the print as it moves to the cutting table. The Kongsberg table quickly registers cuts and then delivers the material to the pallet with perfect stack alignment to ensure consistent production with the next step in the workflow.
With the optional underside camera, you can even convert printed media with the print side down.
The optional underside camera is a must-have for any digital finishing department handling printed media that is required to be converted from the back of the sheet. The underside camera takes away the manual processes of checking each sheet and calculating registration marks.
The underside camera scans the sheet from below (the print side) at the same speed the feeder loads the material. It automatically locates the registration marks, barcodes and the corner of the sheet. The solution doesn’t have to stop to read the marks, saving between 20-30 minutes per set up!
This reduces setup times and material waste: the manual way involves cutting test sheets to make sure that the complex calculations (measuring print-to-edge, mirroring…) are correct.
