The fully automated short block storage is directly connected to the long block storage and the short block cutting station. It places the short block at the appropriate storage location according to its data and the defined stacking criteria.
In the case of manual short block storage, forklift trucks take over the short blocks to store them. At the moment of manual removal, the block data carried up to this point, such as quality, color, foaming date, block dimensions, etc., also leave the system. If the blocks are required at a later stage for further processing into sheets or contour pieces, both the short blocks and the associated block data must be fed in again, either manually or by barcode.
