Kasto added a new plate handler for safe, user-friendly unpacking and storage of sheet metal stacks. The device significantly reduces the amount of manual handling required for heavy plates. It not only saves time but also helps prevent accidents and injuries. The plate handler consists of a drum-shaped turning device with a support table that can be raised and lowered. It is suitable for sheet metal stacks in formats MF, GF and XF with weights up to 5 metric tons. It can also handle diamond plates and set them down on either side as needed.
