HarperScientific recently installed vertical, enclosed units that could store 20- to 40-inch repeat by 100-inch or longer plate sleeves. Also, the storage racks had to be modular, hold at least eight sleeves and offer easy accessibility from either side. Because floor space at the customer site was limited, HarperScientific craftsmen equipped each unit with heavy-duty casters and securing straps. That way, the enclosures – shielding the sleeves from light sources and normal plate dust – could be stored away from the printing line then easily moved, unloaded and reloaded by a single operator. The oversized enclosures shipped fully assembled on their side using special harnessing.
