– EZ-COVERS REPLACEABLE FEED ROLL COVERS

INTUITIVE, EFFICIENT, INNOVATIVE

New, patent pending covers are replaceable in ~10 inch wide sections without removing the roll from the machine, enabling installation by one operator in a fraction of the time it takes to replace an entire feed roll.

SAVE TIME AND LABOR

• Eliminates the need to stock spare feed rolls
• Replaceable in 10 inch wide sections
• One-person installation
• Reduces replacement time to approximately 30 minutes
• Cost Savings (Swap-out Labor, Crating, Transportation, Inventory and Handling)

– SUN AUTOMATION BACKSTOP TABLE

SAFE, CONVENIENT, EFFICIENT

The Backstop Table is an ergonomic option designed for SUN lead-edge-feeders operating with a prefeeder. It facilitates the unloading/reloading of the feed hopper for bad sheet removal, clearing jams, or prep for set up. Ergonomically positioned at board line height, it allows operators to remove sheets from the hopper, inspect for bad board or clear a jam, then reload the hopper without the risk of bending to lift heavy bundles of sheets, and additionally provides a clean flat surface to place the board without the risk of damage.

DESIGNED TO FIT THE OPERATOR

• Sized appropriately for machine sheet size specifications
• Mounts to Lead Edge Feeder frames slightly above board line height
• Slides freely with backstop to adjust for sheet size
• Can be retrofitted to all SUN Lead Edge Feeders operating with a prefeeder
• Available as an option on the SUN625 RDC and any machine that has a SUN Feeder
• Designed and manufactured by SUN Automation Group
