Man Roland News Printers

Information

This was developed for NewsPrinters (News International) to transport larger and heavier paper reels up to 1837mm and weighing 2200kgs, lying down for safer transit due to the centre of gravity.

The system was developed from the Trailerskate system, with a non-slip polyurethane coating applied to the skates to prevent slippage of the reels.

The system operates automatically with 4 lanes of skates that move into the trailer which has the 4 channels to run in, they are raised using an airbag and bring the paper out of the trailer onto the dock in 2 minutes.

This system created a safer, faster way of unloading the paper and also means the paper is damage free as it is secure during transit and unloaded automatically on a dock.

Joloda Hydraroll received The Power of Aluminum Award in 2008 for the design of this system.

Benefits

  • A full payload of up to 26 tonnes of paper reels are un loaded in approx 3 and 1/2 minutes.
  • This system has been in operation for 4 years with practically no downtime and minimum maintenance.
  • Safer method of transportation for larger, heavier reels.

Case Study

The Sunday Times relies on Joloda for the Sunday Paper!!

4 years on and the Joloda automatic paper reel unloading system is still guaranteeing the UK's Sunday reading!

Without the Joloda system, the paper reels would have to be unloaded individually using a clamp truck which takes 45 minutes whereas the Joloda system unloads the trailer deliveries of paper in 10 minutes, which is essential for the vast range of newspapers now being printed at their sites – The Telegraph, News of the world and The Sun, totalling 33 million copies a week! They invested £650 million for the worlds cutting edge technologies to meet this demand, the largest every investment worldwide in a printing plant.

Joloda International have installed 1 unloading dock at the Knowsley site and 2 at the Broxbourne site. The total value of the contract was £3million for the docks and trailers.
The paper reels which are 1837mm long and weigh 2200kgs can only be transported lying down for safety reasons because of the centre of gravity. 12 reels are loaded per trailer and each reel is loaded individually at the paper plant by clamp fork lift truck to a curtain side trailer, produced by Cartwrights and Lawrence David for Malcolms transport and C&H Fleetcare. To supply the 3 docks, there are 40 trailers in operation fitted with the Joloda trailerskate channels.

The system operates automatically with 4 lanes of skates that move into the trailer which has the 4 channels to run in, they are raised using an airbag and bring the paper out of the trailer onto the dock in 2 minutes.
From the UPM plant at Shotton the shuttle distance to the Knowsley site is 30 miles, the furthest shuttle distance from Broxbourne is 70 miles from Palm Paper at Kings Lymm.

All the major paper transporters such as Malcolms, C&H, Howard Tennens and Secon have already been using Joloda systems for unloading/loading paper using either the manual Skate & Track system or the Newsprint system, both of these for reels standing on end. This new automatic system was specifically designed and developed for the Manroland upgrade of the Newsprinter site at Knowsley and Broxbourne for these heavier, longer paper reels. Our system created a safer, faster way of unloading the paper and also means the paper is damage free as it is secure during transit and unloaded automatically on a dock.
