The critical issues related to the storage of cylindrical materials such as rolls of fabric, carpet, rollers, printing cylinders, reels, plastic and paper material, etc. ... are very different but with a common denominator: the needed footprint.
Tools, In most cases, cylindrical materials are stored on static shelving or platforms on the ground with great difficulty during handling operations, taking off valuable space to be allocated to higher value activities.

Operators, often, are forced to move the upper rolls to get to the lower ones exposing the stored material to high risk of damage. The materials are also constantly exposed to external factors such as dust and humidity, which can affect the characteristics and compromise the quality of finished goods.

Identifying a storage solution capable of preserving the integrity of the stored goods and at the same time increasing storage capacity and operational safety, is a critical success factor in terms of productivity, customer service and corporate image.

SILOROLLBOX VLMs range, thanks to trays specially designed to meet these specific needs, is able to protect and store all the different types of cylindrical materials in the proper way, allowing to optimize the available space and improving the safety of the operators.
