5T Handling of vertical rolls


After the handling of cores, paper rolls, palletized sheets and empty pallets had been automated in a paper board mill, space became available for a buffer storage system for rolls. An automated handling systems was then considered necessary to ensure efficient use of the roll storage.


Two high-lift AGVs were installed in the new storage area, which resulted in an increased buffering capacity and a larger degree of self-sufficiency. The AGVs handle vertical rolls from storage to conveyor belt, sending them on to a sheet cutter, and rolls coming into the storage facility. The high-lift AGVs enable up to three rolls to be stacked on top of each other.
