Foster Introduces Lifter for AGFA Printers and Various Roll-to-Roll Cutters

Monday, March 13, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania - Foster has announced the immediate availability of the Foster On-a-Roll Lifter® Universal, the latest in the comprehensive Foster line of material handling equipment.  The new Foster On-a-Roll Universal was designed specifically for AGFA Anapurna, Mira, Tauro, and Titan printers, as well as many roll-to-roll flatbed cutters such as those offered by Zund and Esko Kongsberg.  With the device, printer operators can quickly and safely maneuver rolls as heavy as 660 lbs (300 kg) and as wide as 16 feet, 5 inches (5 m).  On AGFA machines, the tray fits easily into the roll loading area.  Multiple roll wedge settings enable the operator to position the roll precisely for loading and unloading. 
 
Announcing the new lifter, Foster CEO Ted Borowsky said: "The loading areas of many roll-to-roll printers are very limited, and roll lifters must be individually configured to accommodate the different designs in the marketplace.  The Foster On-a-Roll Lifter Universal can be quickly reconfigured by the operator, corresponding to the exact internal geometry of many individual printers.  This is particularly useful in shops using multiple brands and models of printers.  Our new Foster On-a-Roll Lifter Universal improves workplace safety and convenience.  It is available from Foster dealers around the world."
