Serra Industries launches latest innovation

The Spanish manufacturer of machinery for the corrugated industry, SERRA Industries, continues to innovate and has now launched a robotic pre-feeder module for single pass line digital printing lines. In 2016, Serra incorporated a mechanical pre-feeder with an automatic flipping feature that has rapidly evolved into the current robotic pre-feeder. It incorporates several advantages over the previous model, in particular:

·     A more compact space saving design;

·    Greater versatility to be able to pick up and drop the packs of corrugated sheets in different locations;

·    Works hand in hand with multi-feeder, meaning it is able to work with two sheets in parallel, thus improving productivity;

·    Capacity to selectively flip sheets over if necessary.

The robotic pre-feeder can be incorporated in all corrugated single pass digital printing lines to increase productivity. Serra’s first robotic pre-feeder will be installed with an EFI Nozomi at the Indianapolis plant of International Paper.
