For low-cost entry into the automated supply of sheet material

Whether you use it as a buffer or to store material for a production unit, the STOPA TOWER Eco is a superb addition to any production facility. It's the ideal "starter solution" for smaller operations and job shops working with a large variety of materials of which only relatively small quantities need to be stored.

The shelf tower features fixed spacing between the shelves to ensure maximum loading density. By doubling the spacing, taller goods or pallets can be shelved. With bolted rests, stacking heights of 60 mm or 200 mm are possible.

Loading and Unloading / Operation:

  • The material is loaded and unloaded directly on the Storage and Retrieval Unit
  • Operation is intuitive, and is effected in the dead-man mode (optionally also with fully automatic mode). The sheet material is lowered on stamps and aligned on the pallet
  • Operation is from the control console: Simply select the desired shelf number and confirm by pushing the dead-man button
