There are 2 different sorting systems:
A= No sorting (the sorting must be done before clipping of the sheets. (Manually)
Each clipping station has a buffer stock and at the Amtrans all buffer stocks are coming together. The height of the clipping station can be chosen and this height defines the maximum length of the buffer stock. There is no need for an extra raising rail for leading up the clips. This system is the simplest system.
C= Full sorting system.
Each clipping station has a very short buffer stock from where the clips are transported in a driven rail. (This rail can also be a raising rail to lead up the clips; if necessary) From this driven rail the clips are sorted into buffer rails (stocks). The sorting information is put in at the clipping station and this information is used to sort the clip at the sorting point. (End of the driven rail) The buffer stocks are put together near the Amtrans.
To solve the problem of mixing of different kinds of linen of different customers at the folder, there can be delivered a so called “chip system”. (See for description to option 830A)
The control of the rail system is combined with the control of the Amtrans.
With a sorting system C (full sorting system) there is delivered an extra control cabinet.
The capacity of the rail system is about 2400 sheets per hour so the Amtrans and the number of clipping stations (Amclip/Robofeed) are limiting the system.
Attention: The height of the rail system must be high enough to prevent sheets dragging over the floor or other obstacles under the rail system.
The calculation for the minimum height is:
L= maximum sheet length in cm; W= maximum sheet width in cm. The sheet is clipped with the width between the clips.
The minimum height = (10 + √ ((W/2)² + L²)) cm
