While being transported, the tool is held by the push-pull unit as well as resting on the flat surface of the forks.
When the tool is being loaded onto or unloaded from the press, the forks are hooked onto the press bed and the truck is not able to move.
In addition, a programmable controller directs all the truck’s movements, authorising actions according to the truck’s actual situation.
The entire process is controlled from the operator’s position on the truck. The operator is positioned away from the load being moved.
Floor guides steer the truck into position in front of the press and straight into the storage rack. With this guide system and our tool hook system, the tool is placed at its production position on the press bed with no adjustment required.
ECONOMICAL STORAGE RACKS :
The Stackmatic can stack a tool directly onto a storage rack using its bayonet-type coupling system.
The push-pull function is not used in the storage rack, the tool is put down on the stack, as a pallet would be.
The time taken to put down and pick up the tool from the rack is kept as short as possible, and the rack’s structure is subjected to very little stress.
The Stackmatic is compatible with our Cantibloc racks and with most other standard racks.
