Pile turners

Pile turners for turning, jogging, aerating and pallet handling in the printing and packaging industry

We supply an extensive range of different types of pile turners for the printing and packaging industry. This commences with the stacking preparation for the printing process, continues through to the preparation of the die-cutting process and continues through to the turning and pallet exchange of laminated and digitally printed sheets. All pile turners can be equipped with jogging and aerating units. This enables the removal of waste sheets by the operator, the separation of sticking sheets, the blowing-out of dust that is trapped between sheets and the alignment of the pile as part of the preparation for the printing or the die-cutting process.
The pile turner can come equipped with a centring device in order to position the pile in the middle of the pallet. The pile turners enable the exchange of damaged pallets or the change from the wooden pallets, which are frequently used for delivering the primary material, to system pallets for the fully-automated non-stop process. The pile turners can be equipped with conveying technology and, by adding machinery, can be turned into fully-automated palletisation or pallet exchange systems.

  • Preparation of the pile for the printing, die-cutting or laminating process
  • Turning of laminated sheets and corrugated cardboard
  • Usability of all standard pallets, including disposable pallets
