Challenges of transporting plates in high volume, over long distances and multiple floors is a challenge no longer.

The Single Level Plate Highway is made up of several modules, two of which are common in our plate transport systems with the addition of mobile plate carts. The sort stack bins used inline can be added on as your needs grow.

Single Level Plate Highway

single level plate highwaySingle Level Plate Highway with Sort-Stacking Stations are available in 30”, 40”, 60”, and 75” standard sizes. A press ready plate travels along the sorter-stacker transport modules on protective wheels until it reaches the correct bin/cart. The sensor triggers the wheels to drop, placing the plate on delivery belts which transfer the plate into the appropriate stacking bin/cart on either the left or the right.

Each station comes standard with two bins/carts that hold 16 to 20 plates depending upon size and bend geometry. Pop-up pins square the plate on each transport module along the way. Optional bin/carts with wheels are available for final transport to press. Any number of single level sort-stacking stations can be linked together.

No more damaged plates, no more slipsheeting.
Plate scratching is a common problem that occurs with traditional manual sorting, stacking, and transport of “press ready”plates. Burgess has developed multiple plate management options to minimize or eliminate this issue when plate delivery directly press-side is not a viable option. Automated plate sorter-stacker stations are available in a variety of styles.
