STOPA Equipment

Load Carriers

STOPA System Pallet

The system pallets for sheet metal storage systems are available in predefined sizes for all standard sheet metal formats and (depending upon actual requirements) for 3 or 5 tons of effective payload. The support rollers mounted on the face side are self-supporting, and guarantee easy handling for the operator. Additionally, the wear and tear of the system pallets in daily use is minimized.

  • Available for all standard sheet formats
  • Can be expanded with floor plates
  • Effective payload: 3.000 kg or 5.000 kg

STOPA Floor Plates

As a rule, floor plates are used to store small parts (which would normally fall through the pallet tubes) and also grid boxes or wooden pallets. For this reason, the pallets are available in several different models.

STOPA Epal Carrier

The STOPA EPAL CARRIER permits the return storage of sheets on EPAL-EUR-Pallets. In the empty state (when loaded only with EPAL-EUR-Pallets), no second shelf bay is filled here. A further advantage is that normally no floor plates are needed. The EPAL-EUR-Pallets are sunk into the STOPA EPAL CARRIER.

Process Optimisation

STOPA Unpacking Table

The STOPA Unpacking Table is the ideal helper, and accelerates the process of simply unpacking stacks of raw sheet metal and/or of separating the stacks and removing them from the carrier pallets (which are usually made of wood).

  • For separating raw sheet metal and wooden pallet
  • Solid table with freely traveling stamp frame
  • Available for all standard sheet formats

STOPA Pedestal

So-called deposition frames are used to bring system pallets with raw sheet metal or finished parts to predefined work positions.

  • Different heights possible
  • Only in combination with scissor lifting table / WIRELESS CART
  • Positionable loading surfaces possible
  • Several deposition frames can be used in series

STOPA Storage Podium

The storage podium aids in the storage of stacks of sheet metal. Its four rollers are spring-cushioned. When not loaded, the steel frame is pressed upwards and can be shifted. When loaded, the steel frame lowers and the steel feet are planted firmly on the floor.

  • Can be positioned manually
  • With stamps for storing raw sheet metal
  • Only for Tower Eco or Mono
  • Available for all standard sheet formats

STOPA Tandem Changer

After the transport orders are entered, the Storage and Retrieval Unit brings the system pallet – including the material – to the preliminary storage bay.

  • Quicker material provisioning cycle because the storage pallet is already located at the preliminary storage bay
  • Possible for loading and unloading cycles

STOPA Pallet Quick Changer

After the transport orders are entered, the Storage and Retrieval Unit brings the system pallet(s) – including the material – to preliminary storage bays 1 and 2. The scissor lifting table with the lifting and lowering position retrieves the pallet from preliminary storage bay 2 and transports it outside for removal of the material.

  • Decoupling of the loading and unloading cycles from the SRU by direct access of the SLT to the preliminary storage bay
  • Possible for the loading and unloading cycle

STOPA Pallet Transfer Unit / Buffer Station

The pallet transfer unit operates independently of the Storage and Retrieval Unit (SRU) and can commission pallets within a steel construction block. To do this, the SRU stores the necessary pallets in advance in the corresponding steel construction block. With a time-lag, the pallet transfer unit fills the linked cart while the SRU is busy at a different position.

  • Pallet commissioning in a single block, independent of the Storage and Retrieval Unit
  • Can be combined with SLT or transport cart
  • Quicker cycle times
  • Automatic operation
  • Prebuffering of pallets possible

STOPA Picking Tower

The STOPA PICKING TOWER is used for the commissioning of sheet metal stacks of all composition in parallel to main production, e.g., for the production of lot size 1. In doing so, all of the parts belonging to the order are produced and processed together, as a single order. A suction traverse dynamically transports individual metal sheets from the preliminary storage bays and places them onto a commissioning pallet. The unwanted loading of double sheets is prevented by the integrated double sheet recognition feature.

  • Number of commissioning pallets: 2 max. stack height: 130 mm
  • Number of raw sheet pallets: 5 max. loading height: 130 mm
  • Compatible sheet thicknesses: 0.5–8 mm
  • Maximum height: 8 m

STOPA Lifting to Station

Transport carts for long-span cassettes can be equipped with a lifting unit to facilitate the storage and retrieval of rod-like materials. This is because the material can be lifted in a bundle onto the stamp by forklift. The stamps then lower and deposit the bundle of material into the cassette. Without this lifting unit, the stations could be loaded only through the use of loops.

  • For the storage or retrieval of bundles or crates by forklift
  • For improved material removal of deep cassettes

STOPA Pallet Insertion Tool

The STOPA PALLET INSERTION TOOL allows, for the first time, STOPA standard system pallets to be stored by the operator. This storage aid is attached to a forklift. When the unit is then lowered over a stack of pallets, the uppermost pallet is arrested on its rollers and can be lifted. This is then lowered at the incoming goods station, at which time the pallet is optimally positioned on the station and the arresting mechanism is released automatically.

STOPA VARIOCART *

The STOPA VARIOCART more flexibilty, more freedom, mor efficiency.

The STOPA VARIOCART can store sheet metal packages with a load of up to 3 tons quick and simple. It can lift system pallets automaticly as well on tied machines as on a pedestal outside the shelf blocks.

  • Autonomous and free moving transport system
  • Flexible connection of different stations
  • Direct travel path - shorter transport times
  • Stepless control - gentle braking
  • A single solution for optimising your transport logistics
  • New hall utilisation possibilities
