Nela of Oakdale, Minn., is introducing a variety of plate-storage carts for safely storing and transporting imaged plates while minimizing handling damage.
The carts are designed to be docked behind optical or three-point benders. Instead of being stacked for immediate use, plates exiting the bender are conveyed into a plate cart by a distribution unit that loads a plate at a time into cart storage slots. The cart then easily undocks for transport.
The Nela plate cart comes in four models: horizontal and vertical plate storage and automatic and manual loading. Horizontal and vertical versions have full job-storage capacity and are available for any plate size.
