The bcm PrimeStorage is the most sold storage system in the corrugated industry and its popularity is easy to understand. Our customers receive an effective and well-organized storage system, where dies and printing plates can be sorted in almost endless combinations. Furthermore, the bcm PrimeStorage is easy to operate and its value for money is extremely high.
With an overhead-mounted manually operated crane, this manual single rack storage for flatbed dies and printing plates is very useful if lacking the required space for two racks. The single rack system is valuable if you have a small floor or a free wall area but traffic in the aisle or corridor. After use, the operator can “park” the crane higher up in the storage to permit free passage in front of it.
The storage structure is built mainly from galvanized steel. The crane and the crane rails are a combination of alumnium, galvanized steel and powder-coated steel. The monitor has two cameras — an upper and a lower — to support the operator while operating the crane.
The operator can move the crane manually and, at the same time, drive the sleigh with the cassette gripper up and down in a vertical direction. This is time-saving, making operation of the crane efficient, especially with high storages.
The bcm PrimeStorage FP1, T-type includes printing plates in the lowest level. The printing plates are handled manually – without the use of a crane. bcm can also supply trolleys for printing plates, making it easy to slide them out of the storage and onto the trolley. The printing plate’s trolleys are on wheels.
The flatbed die trolleys for the PrimeStorage are designed to contain three (3) cassettes as standard. Each cassette contains all plates needed for one complete set of production dies (cutting die, stripping die, guillotine board and printing drawing). The trolleys are easy to handle and push by one person. When entering the storage area to pick up the cassettes with dies, the operator can just bring the trolley into the storage, place it next to them, fill it with dies and drive it to the converting machines. The default cassette trolleys are on wheels but can also be made for conveyors.
This single rack PrimeStorage solution for flatbed dies and printing plates is not available as a front-mounted crane in the bcm PrimeStorage program. If customers want a front-mounted crane for cassettes and printing plates, they need to choose the bcm SmartStorage (semi-automatic).
Compared to the single rack F-type storage, one particular advantage of this T-type storage is that the tools can be delivered into the trolleys in more locations, as this T-type crane can rotate 360 degrees whereas the F-type cranes cannot rotate.
While the operator is working in the storage, nobody else should be in the aisle due to safety reasons.
