NELA offers newspaper printers sorting stackers in various levels of integration. From simple stacking tray to fully automatic sorting station for organization of plates for several print jobs - our sorting stackers are always adapted to your individual plate volumes and size of your print site.
Various stacker variants are available, from the classic 1-tray stack over right/left stacker up to the double-tray stacker. We always recommend the variant that best suits your needs, and our project team will find the best way to integrate the NELA-installation with the rest of your machine park. Based on a capacity test, which we like to perform based on your production plans, we can determine the scope of the plate sorters exactly.
For maximum automation, the plate sorter can also be attached directly to the gallery of the printing press. The plates are transported via NELA conveyors and/or elevators to the desired stacking location. Manual handling is thereby largely eliminated. By automating the plate logistics is not only faster and cheaper, but it will at the same time improve the quality of the printed product.
Plate sorting is an important part of our Just In Time-concepts, and different levels are available for different requirements. A precondition for automated plate sorting is the installation of the NELA NPS or NPSsmart software.
