ShiftMaster (DBGM) represents a SheetHandlingStorageSystem particularly designed for fully automatic material supply to sheet processing machines of any type and trademark. At a room height of 3 to 4 m required, it can be configured either as an isolated solution consisting of 1 or 2 exchange towers, or as a sequence of any number of elements disposing of 10 to 15 drawers each. After a corresponding signal from the machine, sheets contained are individually unloaded by means of sheet manipulator (robot) programmed on the basis of an integrated storage management software. The weight of a sheet may amount to up to 750 kg. Each item, supplied on an exchange table to the machine, is then available for the next job. The drawers themselves are charged from the rear side by means of a stacker. In order to establish a continuous supply chain, additional exchange places can be prepared as required, whether above the exchange towers or in a separate multipurpose tower warehouse. Just like the sheet types contained in the towers, the content of the additional places can be used for other sectors of the production as well, so the system offers remarkable flexibility for requirements changing from day to day. Identification and separation of double sheets is included as well. The cycle time for access does not exceed one minute. Even in the case of an interruption or a malfunction, manual access to all sheet types is still possible. After cutting, the products by means of catchers or vacuum grippers can be compiled on load carriers held available – also within the exchange towers.
