Burgess Automated Printing Plate Elevators and Transport Systems
Challenges of transporting plates in high volume, over long distances and multiple floors is a challenge no longer.
In this installation at The Detroit Newspaper Partnership (more...) each plate management line utilizes 5 vertical plate delivery elevator modules to deliver press ready plates directly to upper and lower press decks to each GeoMan 75 press. There are a total of 5 Burgess vertical plate delivery modules for a total of 30 in the facility.
The Elevated Plate delivery lines sort, stack and deliver plates to the press cylinders on both upper and lower press decks per Bar Coded input. The Dummy Plate Loader/Unloaders automate dummy plate production and insure continuous CTP plate output in the event there is an interruption in the Plate Management line by automatically unloading imaged plates into a holding station until the interruption in the Plate Management line is resolved. Once resolved it loads imaged plates back into the line for completion of the punch/bending/sort/stacking delivery process.
