Schober Unveils Automated Robotic Stacking System

Fairfield, OH – Schober introduces the high velocity Twin Spider Automated Robotic stacking system for their RSM Rotary Die Cutting Machines. Specifically designed for precise stacking and counting of products up to 40" in length (1000 mm), this new delivery technology is ideal for IML and other labels as well as nested product configurations and different profile jobs that have been ganged together into one print repeat. The Twin Spider Robotic system is used in line with the proven Schober RSM rotary die cutting technology. Speeds of up to 195 f/min (60 m/min) are attainable with a maximum cycle rate of 50 cycles per minute.

This unique technology was unveiled at the recent DRUPA show, where Schober also introduced the SHEETLINE Rotary Sheet Fed Converting Machine.
