Print Cylinder Carousels

Print Cylinder Storage Carousels

Our carousels can be customized for print cylinders of all sizes, to maximize the use of floor and vertical space, while allowing them to be easily accessed and retrieved by a single operator.

Print Cylinder Carousel Applications

Print cylinder carousels are most commonly used in the printing industry, where printing plates are attached to a cylinder for use in a rotary printing press. A print cylinder storage carousel is helpful in these situations because it can maximize floor space to the greatest extent and make print cylinders accessible even when there’s only a single operator.

In general, printing plate cylinders are difficult to lift and put into place. The right print cylinder storage solution can eliminate those related challenges and make the printing process that much easier to navigate and complete.

Features & Benefits of Print Cylinder Carousels

Print cylinder carousels can greatly enhance your business and streamline the day-to-day tasks that can take up a disproportionate amount of your team’s time. When you choose to use vertical print cylinder storage carousels, you unlock a number of benefits for you and your operation, including:

  • Our carousels provide simple “up” and “down” controls, meaning they can be used with little to no training, quickly bringing the desired print cylinder within easy reach. This means more efficient retrieval and fewer back injuries with no need to bend over to get heavy cylinders off the carousel and onto a transportation cart.
  • The simple mechanical operation of our vertical storage carousels also means they are less expensive and less prone to breakage and error than other available storage solutions. Sturdy construction and a lack of computer systems mean less downtime and maintenance, saving you money every day they are in operation.
  • Floor space is often tight in a printing operation. When you choose the right print cylinder carousel for storage, you immediately clear floor space that can be used for other purposes, and you also provide more space for your team to work productively each day.
  • Printing plate cylinders are known for their size and how difficult it is to move and manage them. When you choose a print cylinder storage carousel, you make it that much easier to lift and move and manage cylinders — to the extent that they can be managed by just a single person.
  • Your entire operation runs more efficiently when you choose a print cylinder storage rack. Think of how you can scale your business and increase your productivity with the right print cylinder storage carousel in place.

Of course, the benefits that will matter most to your business depend on the unique nature of your needs and requirements. The benefits above are some of the most common for printing press operations that choose print cylinder carousel solutions, but you’re likely to discover a range of other benefits when you install vertical print cylinder storage carousels.
