1 Fast, Accurate and Reliable Robotic Storage System Single or Multiple Gantry
2 Experience – Printing Industry High Velocity, Safe, Automatic Database Driven Cylinder Storage System
3 Mechanical Configuration Advantage Efficient simultaneous fast horizontal and vertical motion …rather than limited one axis motion …within the same foot print
4 Safety Is #1 Safe cylinder storage and retrieval Safe cylinder handling
5 Vertical Lift On Gantry Gantry Horizontal Section Carrying Lift Redundant motion schemeLasers sets absolution position before each move.Vertical Lift On GantryLasers verifies servo absolute position after each move.Gantry Horizontal Section Carrying LiftHorizontal laserVertical laser
7 System overview and advantages Reliable and safe cylinder storage and retrieval in both automatic and manualSafely and positively detect a cylinder in a rack positionPositively detect that cylinders are properly and thus safely seatedEfficient simultaneous high speed vertical and horizontal motionReliable controls using state of the art hardware, electronics and softwareOffsite diagnostics and support via secure remote network connection (Secure VPN)All mechanical moving parts are standard high quality purchased itemsNon-contact absolute laser measuring eliminates homing and provides self-calibrationUser friendly touch screen with pictorial rack layout and cylinder informationCurrent database technology to track cylinder locations, historical activity and generate reportsOptionally link data to DB Server technologyOptional RFID cylinder ID
8 Quality Off the Shelf Components Maintenance free state of the art servo motors and drives provide quick point to point movesPositive mechanical drive provides fast, point to point motion eliminating overshoot, position correction and slow final moves.Automatic lubricationState of the art digital motion controller provides exceptional accuracy and coordinated simultaneous moves.Unique heavy duty guide bearings and rails provides three point low maintenance, long life, smooth and accurate motion.
9 Rack Configuration Options and Expandability Single Gantry Shafted Cylinder Storage with Gantry Moving Between Multiple Isles
10 Rack Configuration Options and Expandability Multiple Gantry High Density Shaft-less Rotogravure Cylinder Storage
11 Rack Configuration Options and Expandability High Density Combined Plate and Sleeve Storage
12 Additional Printing Industry Experience Co-Inventor and Integrator of Automatic Flexo Plate Mounter/ Proofer using 8 axis of coordinated servo control and vision measuring.
13 Additional Printing Industry Experience Automatically generated proofing analysis and press setup software development
