PORTER™ Carousel Press Takeoff System
Porter™, M&R’s fully adjustable suction-style takeoff for carousel graphic presses, removes substrates quickly, carefully, and consistently. In addition to revolutionizing the takeoff process, Porter dramatically reduces labor costs by reducing the number of people needed to operate the press. It adapts to virtually any substrate, and it’s compatible with all M&R takeoff-ready carousel graphic presses. Everything necessary for takeoff operation is included. Most takeoff functions are accessed at the control panel of the press. The takeoff is servo-driven to eliminate abrupt starts and stops. Captured bearings eliminate rocking and assure smooth movement. Together, they help ensure years of dependable service by minimizing wear and tear.
The suction cups feature tool-free adjustment and can be used in any combination. They can be positioned from side-to-side and moved forward and back on the takeoff housing. Replaceable rubber cups provide a firm yet gentle grip on substrates. The air regulator allows operators to establish the precise vacuum level for each substrate, from ultra-thin substrates to heavy board stock.
M&R takeoff units are built to specifications established by the European Committee for Standardization® (CE) and Underwriters Laboratories® (UL), and are backed by a one-year limited warranty and a 24-hour hotline staffed 365 days a year. Engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance, they’re ideal for demanding high-production environments.
