Integrated facilities link the transport of piles and pallets between different machines and plants.
Examples are integrated systems that offer automated supply of piles at the feeder and automated removal of piles at the delivery of one or more presses or die cutting machines, as well as the transport of empty pallets from the feeder to the delivery of those machines.
In addition, different processing steps can be inter-linked. For example piles can be transported automatically from the press to the die cutter and further on to the gluing line, with and without intermediate stops at a ware-house. The following shows a sketch of a principle plant lay-out and some examples of individual factory solutions for reference.
