BCM flatbed and rotary cutting die storing and transport
The number of cutting dies in a packaging facility can easily increase to between 1500 and 2500 sets. To store all those dies safely and change them quickly between new jobs requires tremendous organization. Or … BCM’s intelligent cutting die storage and transportation system.
BCM Transtech developed a range of cutting die storage systems, from manual to fully automatic. Below we show you the advantages of BCM’s fully automatic storage compared to conventional ways of storing cutting dies. Of course, it depends on your actual production which storage capacity and degree of automation you need. For that reason, BCM storage systems are modular and expandable as your production increases.
What can BCM’s fully automatic cutting die storage system do for you
BCM’s automatic storing and transport system is ideal with a large stock of dies (flatbed and/or rotary) and lots of order changes. In this case, not only you need to store a lot of dies safely, you also need to locate them quickly.
Increasing productivity and safety
To keep your production efficient, BCM’s automatic storage system finds the right place for your dies. Plus, it stores the exact location in one digital logistics system that controls the entire operation.
Transporting the cassettes with dies between storage and production can be done with manual or motorized trolleys. Interaction with your internal logistic system belongs to the possibilities as well. This greatly increases productivity and safety on the work floor. No dangerous manoeuvering or heavy lifting and no obstacles in the workplace.
Protecting cutting die rubbers and knives
The storage section consists of a robust and flexible shelving system with cassettes, which contains your complete production set of flatbed punches. These cassettes protect the delicate knives and rubber of the dies during storage and transport. A fully automatic crane moves the cassettes to transport trolleys, which move in a secured system.
Economic use of floor space
BCM’s storage system uses the full height (up to 10 m. high) of your storage space. So, even with an increasing stock, your existing warehouse will be large enough.
BCM’s cutting die storage and transportation: the benefits
- Modular storage possibility for both rotary and flatbed cutting dies (or a combination)
- Easily expandable for future needs.
- Prevents downtime and repair costs by protecting your cutting dies.
