Originally the machine was used just for turning paper, to replace manpower by machinery. Nowadays it fulfils many more additional tasks, such as
- Airing - Dust removing - Drying - Aligning - Jogging -
For the demands of the printer or paper and board converter a pile turner with these capabilities represents an indispensable piece of equipment
The Busch pile turner speeds up and improves both the printing and the finishing process due to an optimal pile treatment. Different sorts of paper and board with varying weights can be handled on the turner. As the demands for quality increase, the pile turner represents a sensible investment.
In 1976 the first Busch pile turner was designed and delivered. With decades of experience a perfect engineering is guaranteed - and top quality is Busch’s first priority. The solid and modern designed machines are well known for their easy handling – they are used worldwide and prove a notable longevity.
All Busch pile turners are designed and manufactured in own factories in Germany (Seevetal). The large range of models, with numerous options, fulfils all individual requirements.
Pile turners are available just as a turning unit or with airing, aligning and jogging function as semi-automatic or fully-automatic versions optionally. The following pages on this website give detailed information of all available models and options.
Turning is done by hydraulically lifting the pile to the horizontal position and subsequently rotating it through 180°. It replaces time-consuming manual handling.
By pile turning the upper pallet can be changed easy by hand. By repeated turning the pile stands on the new pallet.
The pile is aligned against the aligning gauge in the tilted position with high volume airing. Bad sheets can be removed without a problem – depending on the thickness of the material.
The ideal support to speed-up perfect alignment of the pile - in the tilted position with high volume airing.
Single sheets (e.g. damaged sheets or wastepaper) can be pulled from the pile at the already ventilated area on the rear side of the machine. For this the swivelling control panel is placed at the rear side.
The pile can be centrally aligned on a larger-sized pallet without problem.
Two model series are available –
Pile turners of SWH series with airing include pressure control flaps as standard. The aligning gauge is adjustable according to sheet width and adapts to the pile height automatically. The jogging intensity is adjustable at the control desk. Air jets are travelling just under the respective pile height. Alternatively it is possible to pre-select the number of air jet travels (start and stop) to enable an airing process without the presence of an operator
Taking into account all possible options - a wide spectrum is achieved for processing paper and board with extreme variations in quality.
The Busch pile turner speeds up the printing and finishing process
The press can run permanently at high speed
The pile turner needs less than 1 minute for turning a pile
and 4-5 minutes, on average, for turning, airing and jogging the pile
Any employee can operate the pile turner
