This customized sleeve storage system allows easy access, storage and retrieval of sleeves with an optional Semi-Automatic feature. The Semi-Automatic feature entails that the horizontal movement of the racks is motorized by use of electric motors. This feature allows the user to input a repeat number or job an a touchscreen interface, through which the racks automatically “open” to the specific rack where the sleeves are stored.
The sleeve storage system is custom engineered to store sleeves with different dimensions in any amount. Due to space restrictions in the plant it is usually suggested to use a 2-high system, with the most easy to handle sleeves on the upper level. The system can be expanded with several racks for the future.
